The Bandits wrestling organization provides youths with the opportunity to learn and compete in wrestling at various levels. Wrestling is a unique and great sport for combining individual competiveness and sense of accomplishment in a collaborative and team environment. Wrestling will help kids learn self discipline, sportsmanship, gain confidence, work together in a team environment, and foundation for self defense; as well as many other skills and lessons that can be applied to various sports and life.
“More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill – none have wrestled without pride.” Dan Gable
The Bandits have a long history of providing basic, intermediate and advance wrestling training to prepare wrestler for the competitiveness and challenges of the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF), Capital Area Wrestling League(CAWL), and other National Tournaments.
