WRESTLING STATUS IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA

  • VHSL announced masks are required during practices/competitions for select sports.
  • Normally the season starts practices in early November when respective counties release facility space.
  • Practices generally coincide with the Virginia High School League (VHSL) season start in November.
  • VHSL announced that the first high school practices will begin December 14, 2020.
  • County parks and recreation offices delayed access to facilities by youth sports programs until January.
  • Clubs that use private facilities will start earlier commensurate with VA State guidelines. 
  • VHSL imposed severe restrictions on high school wrestling practices starting December 14th. 

As a result, NVWF Executive Committee determined it best to delay the youth wrestling program until after the holidays based on recent guidelines by VHSL and NVWF Parent/Coach/Manager surveys showing most clubs depend on access to public schools for practices. A meeting will be held after Christmas to determine the status of sports in the area.
