Registration for the 2021/22 Season
Registration for the recreation league is open now through November 10, 2021.
During registration you will be asked the questions below, so please be prepared:
- Estimated Weight, height and experience
- Volunteering: Select opportunities including time keeper, scoring, fundraising/events, etc.
Each Outlaw wrestler is required to have a USA Wrestling Folkstyle membership in order to compete. These may be obtained through the USA Wrestling website (see link below).
OBGC provides each wrestler with a wrestling singlet to be returned at the end of the season. A $50 deposit check is required at the time of singlet distribution. Each wrestler is responsible for obtaining wrestling shoes and headgear. No street shoes are allowed in the wrestling room or on wrestling mats. Wrestling shoes and headgear may be purchased at local sporting goods stores, online or through mail order catalogs. Wrestlers with braces will need mouth guards.
Masks will be required by all participants, spectators and coaches in buildings and mat side. Guidelines and mandates are subject to change and will follow county guidelines.
Rec practices are tentatively scheduled to begin late November. All wrestlers should come to practice in appropriate practice clothing (athletic shorts and tight-fitting t-shirt), including headgear and wrestling shoes.
Practices will be held two days a week at Sherwood High School. Days/Schedules are TBD and will be provided at the start of the season. Practices last 2 hours, typically 6 – 8 p.m. Every effort will be made to ensure kids are matched up by weight/level for practices.
Depending on the number of registrations, the Outlaws team will participate in the Howard County Wrestling (HCW) League. Dual meets are typically held on Saturdays and most at the Gary J. Arthur Community Center in Glenwood, MD (just up Rt. 97). There are many other novice and intermural meets available during the season outside of HCW. More information and opportunities will be shared as available.
Our program operates only through the generosity of our volunteers. Please consider volunteering. We are looking for score keepers, timekeepers and coaches. Coach’s clinics will be offered during the season. If you are interested in these clinics, please reach out to the Wrestling Commissioner at email@example.com.
