Meet the Annandale Mat Rats

Sometimes after a hard day the idea of channeling all your strength and energy to pin someone down might sound pretty appealing, right?  Here at the ABGC’s Wrestling program, the Annandale Mat Rats, kids get to do it all the time…in a wonderfully fun and athletic way.  

The Mat Rats wrestling program is for ages 5-14 and will begin in early November and run through February. Our Wresting matches are generally held on weekends, primarily on Sundays. Youth competitions are grouped by age, weight and experience. The Annandale Wrestling Team competes in the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) with teams from all over Northern Virginia. The season ends with an annual banquet in March.

Registration will close on December 16, 2011. The online registration fee is $85 through 11/18/2011, then will be $90. Registration includes a T-Shirt and use of the singlet for a season. To register online, click here.
