Spring and Summer Wrestling Information

Chantilly Wrestling Banquet

The Chantilly Wrestling Banquet will be at Chantilly National Golf & Country Club (14901 Braddock Rd, Centreville, VA) on Sunday, April 3rd from 6PM to 9PM. All wrestlers should dress to impress! This means a tie! All wrestling families, wrestlers (Varsity & JV), managers, and coaches are invited to attend.

Please make checks out to Chantilly High School. We will also be selling Chantilly Wrestling spirit wear at the banquet! Payment and RSVP by Monday, March 21st. Chantilly Wrestling Banquet Flyer.

 
Team Wrestling Camp at the University of Virginia
We will be going to the University of Virginia for our team wrestling camp on Sunday, July 17 through Wednesday, July 20. The cost of the camp is $475 which includes all meals, charter bus travel, hotel accommodations,4 to 6 refereed matches and receive 2 to 3 hours of technical instruction each day. I will send registration information soon. All checks should be written to Chantilly High School. I realize $475 is costly so we will have fundraising opportunities this spring.
 
Spring Wrestling Practices & Lifting
The spring and summer is a great time to work hard and get better than the opponent! Although practices, tournaments, and conditioning are not mandatory, we strongly recommend attending (especially if wrestlers are not playing another sport). I'm working to figure out a schedule for our spring wrestling practices. Because Chantilly baseball/softball use the wrestling room frequently in March we won't be able to have a consistent practice schedule at Chantilly until April. I'm going to focus on coaching folkstyle this spring and summer, but learning freestyle and greco in other rooms is a great opportunity! There is always a wrestling room that is having practices in Northern Virginia, so get in there! Here is what I have:
  • Lifting at Chantilly will take place Monday through Thursday from 7AM to 7:45AM beginning Monday, March 7th. I'm in graduate school twice a week after school and this works best for my schedule. Plus, the weight room is VERY crowded after school, so I believe this is the best plan of action. I realize many wrestlers may have issues arriving to school this early, but let's work together to make this work. Again, this is optional, but it's the best way to get an edge over your opponents. Also, wrestlers that live within 3 miles of Chantilly should consider running to school as the weather warms up.
  • Dulles Mat Club wrestling practices will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons at Westfield High School. I'm working with Coach Shoulders at Westfield to figure out times and logistics. I hope to have more information soon.
  • Gunston Wrestling Club wrestling practice will be on Tuesdays and Thursday from 6PM to 8PM at Hayfield High School beginning Thursday, March 4. This is a great wrestling room with many wrestlers to train with! Contact Roy Hill at (540)587-4068 OR rhill3@fcps.edu for more information.
  • Ashburn Wrestling Club practices 5 days a week in different locations. They will begin Monday, March 9 at Broad Run High School from 4:30PM to 6PM  I will send out more information soon, but in the meantime here is their website with information: http://www.ashburnwrestlingclub.com/ or ashburnwrestling@gmail.com
  • Top of the Podium (http://www.topofthepodium.org/partnership with Patriot Wrestling Club which is run by the coaches at George Mason University, a D1 wrestling program. On Sundays at TOP in March, coach Israel Silva will lead High School and other serious wrestlers in club practices to help them improve and prepare for spring competitions. If there is adequate turnout, we expect these sessions to continue throughout the spring with an emphasis on Freestyle and Greco-Roman. Sunday sessions at TOP are currently scheduled from 5PM to 6:30PM throughout March, except for the very first practice on March 6 (this will be held from 4PM to 5:30PM between rounds of the Dulles Duals Team Championships). The monthly fee is only $50 for these 4 Sunday practices. Participants may also become full members of the Patriot Wrestling Club and attend 3 practices per week (2x at GMU on Tues/Thurs evenings, 1x at TOP) for $100 per month. Alternatively, wrestlers may also pay a $15 fee to attend individual practices. All participants must have a valid, current USA Wrestling card. To register in advance, click here and mail form to Coach Israel Silva.
  • Patriot Elite Wrestling Club will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7PM to 8:30PM at the George Mason Field House Wrestling Room (4501 University Dr, Fairfax, VA) beginning on Thursday, March 25. To register in advance, click here and mail form to Coach Israel Silva.

  2. Sunday, March 6 is the VAC/VAWA Folkstyle Freshman State Tournament, Sophomore State Tournament and Super States at Riverbend High School in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

If you plan on attending please make plans to carpool. Local satellite weigh-ins are at Hayfield High School on Saturday, March 5 from 5PM to 6:30PM. Contact Roy Hill at (540)587-4068 or rhill3@fcps.edu. Cost is $35. REGISTER HERE

  8. Saturday, April 9 at Hayfield High School is the NOVA Freestyle and Greco Tournament. More information will come soon. Contact Roy Hill at (540)587-4068 or rhill3@fcps.edu for more information.
USA Wrestling Card Membership
All Chantilly Wrestlers need to purchase a USA Wrestling Card Membership at https://www.usawmembership.com/. Wrestlers should purchase the membership that covers Freestyle, Greco, and Folkstyle. This is important for insurance and for wrestling in tournaments throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Do not worry about choosing a "Wrestling Club" at this point. We are planning on adding "Dulles Mat Club", but for now just bypass this choice.
 
Singlets and Gear
I have offseason "Dulles Mat Club Livewire" singlets, shorts, and shirts for sale. Singlets are $40 each and come in two colors: RED and BLUE. Shirts and shorts are $10 OR $15 for both. I would recommend all wrestlers purchase a headgear and a singlet for offseason tournaments. Also, freestyle and greco tournaments want you to have a red and a blue singlet for tournaments (it's the rules). I will loan out Chantilly singlets for the spring/summer if needed...just let me know!
