The mission of the Front Royal Raptors is to promote, support, and develop youth scholastic wrestling in Front Royal and surrounding communities. We focus on fostering the ideals of sportsmanship through participation, competition, and fellowship. We also work hard to achieve outstanding results on and off the mat. The Front Royal Raptors won our Mason Dixon League Championship in 2015 and 2016 as well as placing Top 7 overall at the VAWA State Championship each year since 2014.
The Mason Dixon League is a great organization for the development of youth wrestling. Wrestlers are matched up by age, weight, and skill level so everyone has an opportunity to participate in competitive matches. No starters and no bench.
League Age Divisions:
Bantam: 7 and Under
Midget: 8 and 9
Junior: 10 and 11
Intermediate: 12 and Older
