2020 National Holiday Duals- Postponed/Cancelled

Dear Friends :

Coaches and Team Leaders,

It is with great sadness and disappointment that the VACW Board has been put in a situation to postpone the 2020 National Holiday Duals. We will work diligently on bringing this great event back, better than ever,  December 2021 in Virginia Beach.  We will spend the next month trying to see if there is a way to have this event in Virginia Beach during the spring, but nothing is solid at this point. We have been faced with a Governor and Health Department that will not cooperate with the sport of wrestling. While we are all hoping for some miracle, we do not see it happening. All of our wrestling families need to be able to make plans or change plans due to the event postponement /cancellation. Frank Lipoli will be in contact with each of concerning any deposits or payments and how we need to handle that for you. On behalf of the VACW Board, we wish everyone the best. 

The  Best in Wrestling to All

USA Wrestling statement on social justice

Social injustice is wrong and contrary to the inclusive nature of wrestling. USA Wrestling’s mission is to provide quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full athletic and human potential. Recent tragedies in our nation compel us to do more and do it better. We stand with our African American and black communities and all of the diverse people who are part of our sport. We will focus our actions on how we can drive change against unjust treatment, police brutality, and systematic racism that is plaguing our nation and world. We need to come together now and use our voice, platform, and actions to help create the kind of society that reflects our values. By its nature, wrestling can be the most inclusive sport on earth. Anyone can wrestle and everyone is welcome. When we hit the mat, we are all part of one wrestling family.
