Welcome to the Lions Wrestling Club

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 6 to 14 years old.  Our wrestlers will be the future stars of the McLean, Marshall, Langley and Arlington County high school wrestling teams. 

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.
We are part of the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) which consists of more than 30 clubs throughout northern Virginia. Tournaments are usually held on Sundays, starting in December and continuing until the end of February. Practices are twice a week.

As always, new wrestlers are welcome. The NVWF is the perfect place for beginning wrestlers to learn the sport. Rookies are always matched against other rookies at our weekly meets.


Registration now open

We are happy to open regisrtration for what will be our tenth season of Lions Wrestling. We have grown into one of the largest youth wrestling clubs in northern Virginia and one of the most successul. several of our kids are now wrestling in Division I programs. It all starts here, and we recognize that for kids to be successful, they have to enjoy wrestling, and we do our best to provide an atmosphere that makes wrestling fun for the boys and girls who participate.

And we are proud to have strong ties to the top-notch wrestling programs at McLean and Marshall high schools, where we hold the bulk of our practices.

Registration is again just $125 for the season. Practices start in mid-November, but sign up now, because we may need to cap registration if we get too popular. 

See you on the mat.
