We are a
small organization with a approximately 100 wrestlers, therefore, everyone must
contribute to ensure a successful and fun filled season for our children. There
will be a volunteer/singlet
deposit in the form of a $75 undated check to be returned if the family
volunteers for the minimum
amount of time required and the singlet is returned at the end of the season
intact. Volunteer time
may include, concession help, table help at home matches, and there are various
requiring volunteers. All families will be required to participate in the
volunteer program. There will
be a volunteer schedule made out prior to our first HOME meet.
to the normal registration fee of $185 (all inclusive) you will be required to
wrestling shoes ($30+) and headgear ($20+) from a sporting goods store of your
wrestling shoes are available from our shoe bank. We will provide a wrestling
singlet as stated
above for use in our matches, and a Predator T-shirt that the wrestler can keep.
Your wrestling fee
is “all inclusive” (no other fees required for season including tournaments that
we enter as a team or
the banquet at the end of the season). Most tournaments are held in the month
of December in
preparation of the regular season start in early January. There will be
tournaments for all including
beginner and experienced. Participation in pre-season tournaments is not
required, but highly
recommended to get the kids accustomed to wrestling a match or to just “knock
the rust off”. There
are additional tournaments during the season as well including the Maryland
State Youth Championships,
Mason Dixon Championships, and CAWL Championships.

Predators wrestle in two leagues : the Mason Dixon League (MDL), and the Capital
League (CAWL). The MDL is a very competitive recreational league consisting of
nearly 1,000 wrestlers
from 19 teams across 4 states (MD, PA, VA, and WV). The CAWL league is our dual
meet team league
that consists of our more experienced wrestlers. The CAWL is comprised of 13
teams from northern
Virginia and Maryland and is a very competitive league boasting some of the best
wrestlers from both states.
both leagues start the weekend of January 4, 2014. CAWL meets can be held on
or Sundays while all MDL meets are held on Sundays. The MDL meets last between
4-6 hours. Home
matches require setting up and taking down of mats and equipment, table help,
concession help, and
clean up, and away matches require travel time (up to an hour each way) plus the
3 to 4 hours of
wrestling time. All wrestlers will wrestle a minimum of 2 matches and as many
as 4-5 matches.
The season concludes in mid-March with a league championship tournaments.
