The Weekend Wars, the #1 off-season wrestling experience in the Carolinas, will return to Darkhorse in Summer/Fall 2021 for it’s 5th year. Over the past 5 years we have experienced an unprecedented number of off-season wrestlers participating in this event!!  The majority of these athletes wrestle more than 10 matches during the Wars and all are making gains and becoming better wrestlers.

The Weekend Wars are completely FREE for Darkhorse Members and only $10.00 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.

How it Works:

Arrive at Darkhorse Wrestling – 2941 Interstate Street

Complete LIABILITY WAIVER (if not already on file) and declare your weight

Find another wrestler who is near your weight.

Agree on a style (Freestyle, Folkstyle, Greco)

Just Wrestle – Stay as long as you want and wrestle as many times as you want.

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 referees
  • 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!!
