In 2011, the Virginia Beach National Games Inc. (a non-profit 501(c)(3) certified organization) was formed comprised of a group of former wrestlers, coaches, officials, parents and event directors. We joined together with the Virginia Beach Convention Center and Visitors Bureau to create a premier wrestling event known as the Virginia Beach Nationals.
We have now grown to a Multi-Sport Event bringing together competitors from a variety of athletic talents. The entire event endeavors to raise money for organizations like the WWP, Navy Seal Foundation, 31 Heroes, One Team One Fight and as well as local wrestling programs.
The VBNG staff feels that competitors deserve great events. It is our belief that parents, athletes and coaches will have a positive experience and enjoy our oceanfront.
The Virginia Beach Fieldhouse is a multi-sport complete located at 2020 Landstown Centre Way, Virginia Beach, Va 23456. This is the site for Wrestling, Field Hockey, Grappling, Judo, Ju Jit Su, Crossfit, Cornhole and others as we add them
