Information on how to participate in the Dulles Duals will be provided in the month of November after we have a better understanding of club interest and availability.
Elementary Novice Duals event
One day tournament with roughly 2-3 rounds intended for “rookie” and less experienced wrestlers in grades K-6 who haven't wrestled in many, if any, duals before.
Goal is to expose less experienced wrestlers to the excitement of a dual format. Therefore a team’s primary goal isn’t to win the dual meet but rather obtain quality, exciting matches for the wrestlers.
Tournament date: Monday, January 20th
Wrestlers must be born on or after September 1, 2007 regardless of their grade.
Heavy weight UNL is an extra slot that does not count toward team points.
Middle School Teams Duals event
One day tournament with roughly 3-4 rounds for teams of wrestlers who attend the same middle school (two schools are allowed to combine to form a team, plus two wrestlers who don't attend the school, ideally home schooled or private school students who would normally attend the school).
Given that DYS is fed by 4 primary middle schools, we'll possibly have 2 teams.
We expect a lot of novice wrestlers at this event.
The goal is to expose middle schoolers to the excitement of a dual format, and the main objective is an exciting dual with competitive matches (more so than winning).
Tournament date: Monday, February 17th
Grades 6-8 (typical birth dates range 9/1/2005 to 8/31/2008 although some kids are held back).
Wrestlers must be born on or after January 1, 2005.
