How to Join the NCWC
Step 1: Come to practice, introduce yourself, try out wrestling
Attend whatever practice works for you; you can try it out two or three times to see if you're interested before committing to a membership. New wrestlers are welcome at any time, though since we occasionally have to move or cancel practices, it's a good idea to let us know you're coming through the Contact Us page to make sure you don't show up when we're not there. For the 2019/2020 season, practices at which new wrestlers can start are:
Registering with the National Capital Wrestling Club requires filling out our registration form, giving us proof of age, and paying the membership fee. Our registration form can be downloaded here. Print it out, fill out your information, and bring it to practice along with payment and a photocopy of proof of age.
Proof of age should come in the form of a photocopy of any identification that states the wrestler's name and birthday. Health cards, passports, birth certificates, and driver's licences all work.
Our membership fee includes the mandatory $65 OAWA fee, which is the wrestler's insurance. The NCWC's fee for twelve months is $300 for the first wrestler in a family ($365 total, including the OAWA fee), and $150 for each subsequent wrestler ($215 total, with the OAWA fee). We also offer $95 memberships that last for three months ($160 total, with the OAWA fee). If you purchase a three-month membership, you can upgrade to a twelve-month membership at any time by paying the difference.
We are committed to making the sport of amateur wrestling accessible to families of all incomes and not turning away any potential wrestler due to financial issues. Please send us an e-mail or talk to the coaches in person if our fees are a problem for you.
