THE WEEKEND WARS - 2018
The Weekend Wars, the #1 off-season wrestling experience in NC, returned to Darkhorse in April and since then, we have experienced an unprecedented number of off-season wrestlers participating in this event!! The majority of these athletes wrestle between 6-10 matches during the Wars and all are making gains and becoming better wrestlers.
The battle begins on the designated dates at 0900am and will continue until Noon. The Weekend Wars are completely FREE for Darkhorse Members (Unlimited and Beginner/Youth) and only $5.00 for everyone else.
All of us at Darkhorse Wresting are committed to providing area wrestlers with a safe, affordable and "pressure-free" opportunity to grow in the sport.
Come join the battle!
NOTE - All Wrestlers must have a signed waiver on file at DH to participate in this event. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Who Should Participate?
The Weekend Wars is designed for all wrestlers with all levels of experience - i.e. Youth, Middle School or High School wrestlers who want good mat-time in an informal setting. The Weekend Wars is especially good for COMPETETIVE wrestlers who want to try out new technique in a “live” setting with unfamiliar partners. It is also good for ROOKIE wrestlers who are reluctant to compete because of a perceived lack of readiness. Its good for all wrestlers!!
On a combined basis, last year we saw hundreds of wrestlers compete in literally thousands of informal matches at the WARS!
What makes the Weekend Wars different?
At the Weekend Wars there will be -
NO on-mat coaching
NO score keeping
NO winning or losing
The Weekend Wars is an off-season wrestling opportunity for all YOUTH, MIDDLESCHOOL and HIGHSCHOOL wrestlers. The WEEKEND WARS is NOT a tournament!! – It’s an experience that should not be missed!!
