The Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) is an all-volunteer organization formed by 4 clubs in 1966 to promote wrestling in the Northern Virginia area. NVWF is the ONLY beginners' wrestling organization for the D.C. Metropolitan Area. 38 wrestling clubs with over 1,800 coed wrestlers ages 5 to 14 from 12 different cities and towns in 11 Virginia counties are NVWF members.
NVWF stresses safety and sportsmanship while having fun. Fairfax County Department of Recreation presented NVWF a Community Service Award "for enriching the lives of Fairfax County citizens by providing opportunities for quality amateur athletic competition."
Clubs start registration in September. Please contact individual clubs regarding registration timeframes and costs. NVWF requires separate membership with USA Wrestling for their secondary medical insurance coverage.
Practices start in November with the first meet in December. Please contact individual clubs regarding practice schedules.
NVWF holds up to 16 meets on 8 weekends from December through February. A Final Tournament with all clubs is held in early March. We contract with Fairfax County Public School Athletic Trainers to provide professional medical care at our tournaments.
