Non-profit youth organizations rely heavily on parent and community involvement. What we put into our children is what we will get out of them. The MBGC Wrestling Program is no exception to the rule. We need your assistance to support our wrestlers through a busy wrestling schedule, tournaments, fundraisers and most of all building them up! The success of the program is dependent on what we create together as a team.
Our Season (2018 – 2019)
Practice runs from beginning of November to mid-March.
Practices are held Mondays and Thursdays for Novice/Beginner wrestlers from 7:00 – 8:00 pm, and Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays for Experienced wrestlers from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at Frederick Douglass High School in Upper Marlboro, MD. The first practice is Thursday, November 1, 2018.
Our league tournaments run from the first week in January through the middle of March.
Most league tournaments take place on Saturday mornings at various schools in the Southern Maryland area including Prince George’s County, Charles County, St. Mary’s County and Calvert County. Some tournaments may also be held on Sunday’s.
All Marlboro wrestlers compete against other wrestlers in the Southern Maryland Junior Wrestling League (SMJWL). We also have a team that wrestles in the Anne Arundel Wrestling League (AAWL). Participation in this league is mainly for experienced/advanced wrestlers. In the SMJWL wrestlers are matched up according to their age and weight in one of 32 different weight classes. In the AAWL wrestlers participate in dual format tournaments.
All participants will be required to wear the MBGC issued singlet (uniform). The program will provide all wrestlers with new uniforms this season.
All families will be required to participate in a fundraiser effort during the season.
