Welcome to the Lions Wrestling Club. We promote the sport of wrestling in the McLean, Langley, Great Falls, Falls Church and Arlington areas of northern Virginia. We welcome beginners as well as experienced wrestlers ages 5 to 14 years old. We are part of the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) which consists of 30 clubs throughout northern Virginia. As always, new wrestlers are welcome. The NVWF is the perfect place for beginning wrestlers to learn the sport. Rookies are typically matched against other rookies at our weekly meets.
Our mission is to teach the sport of wrestling and to teach the values and character traits that wrestling reinforces. These include dedication and hard work as the path to success, a refusal to give up, an attitude of personal confidence, and most of all, taking responsibility for one's own successes and failures. We also like the kids to have fun.
Our typical season runs from mid-Nov to late-Feb. Practices are twice a week; traditionally our younger wrestlers (approx 5-8yo) practice on Tue/Thu and our older wrestlers (approx 9-14yo) practice on Mon/Wed. Tournaments are usually held on Sundays, usually starting in Dec and continuing until the end of Feb.
We usually open registration on 1 Oct, but are postponing that until we have a better idea of what the season may look like. Of course much is up in the air with the season due to COVID-19 and local restrictions/precautions. We will update this webpage with details as we learn more.
