Virginia Wrestling Academy 2018-2019 Fall-Winter Registration Instructions

ELIGIBILITY
The Virginia Wrestling Academy (VWA) is open to Select Wrestlers ages 10 and up. To enter the VWA, wrestlers should have at least 3 to 4 years of wrestling experience, and be ready for intense challenges in training to prepare for competitive wrestling tournaments. The VWA is geared toward readying wrestlers to hit the ground running at the start of high school and beyond. This includes the development of advanced wrestling techniques as well as mental and physical toughness necessary for success in highly competitive wrestling tournaments at the state and national levels. To enter the VWA, wrestlers should have developed an internal desire for the sport of wrestling that transcends parental encouragement. In other words, the wrestler needs to love it and want it themselves.

TEAM REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT
Team registration/season dues are ($450.00) which include: Various tournament fees, Training Facility fees for 1 October through 31 March , USA Wrestling individual insurance, USA Wrestling card, Team T-shirt. Use of a team Singlet requires an additional $75.00 cash/check which will not be cashed and will be destroyed or returned at the End of Season with return of the Singlet. Payment of $450.00 is due upon registration. If this is difficult we will facilitate an initial payment of $225.00 or half of the balance due for more than 1 wrestler in a family.
