The Roanoke Valley Wrestling Association (RVWA) is comprised of members from our community including former wrestlers, current and former coaches, officials, family members of wrestlers, and anyone who loves the sport of wrestling.
The RVWA achieves this mission by sponsoring and providing volunteers and materials for local tournaments and matches. We have sponsored clinics for youth through high school wrestlers and provide financial help to programs including Ferrum and VA Tech. The RVWA believes in giving back to the wrestling community. We give The Ken Shelton Memorial Scholarship and Stan Parker Memorial Scholarship each spring to local high school wrestlers. To date we have awarded $54,000.
The Association also recognizes coaches and wrestlers through awards including wrestler of the year, coach of the year, assistant coach of the year, and the Roy Stanly Outstanding Achievement award. The RVWA sponsors the Roanoke Valley Wrestling Hall of Fame and awards a Lifetime Achievement Award each year.
Our mission is to encourage, support, and promote wrestling from youth programs through middle school, high school,
