Vipers Wrestling is a community-based organization with a geographic center in Columbia. It has been a Parks & Recreation program for over two decades. The Vipers' mission is to provide the youth of Howard County with the opportunity to experience the great sport of wrestling in a fun, structured, and disciplined program. The Vipers are coached exclusively by volunteers and 394 kids participated in the 2018-2019 wrestling program. Three levels of wrestling are offered (clinic, recreation and advanced). The clinic program offers children the opportunity to experience wrestling in a non-competitive environment. The recreation program is semi-competitive. The advanced program offers the best youth wrestling training in Maryland. The program concentrates on the things we can control in the wrestling room: effort, discipline, focus, and mental & physical conditioning. It is all summarized in our name: Vipers is an acronym that stands for victory, intensity, pride, endurance, respect and success.
