The Wisconsin Wrestling Federation, guided by USA Wrestling, provides quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full human and athletic potential. Wisconsin Wrestling Federation will strive to be USA Wrestling’s best state organization. Training Team and National Team information can be found on the individual athlete tabs from the menu.
The Annual Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, October 2nd at The Lodge in Mauston. This is an open meeting where we will hear from WWF State Chairperson, Todd Schaaf, and multiple other directors with their year-in-review. Up for vote this year are the positions of Kids Director, 16U Director, Junior Director, Women’s Director and University Director. Jolene Bonte was voted in as the new Pairings Director in August. Dave Matthews will present information about the USA Wrestling Membership System.
Our WWF mission is to provide quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full human and athletic potential, and strive to be USA Wrestling’s best state organization.
Among those leaders are mat officials (referees). We are always in need of additional officials. Maybe you're a young man or woman who wrestled in High school and you're now in college. Maybe your wrestler has moved on to their next phase of life and you still need your wrestling "fix". Or you're a coach stepping down.
Have you ever considered taking a role as an official?
The WWF provides mentorship to help you achieve an WWF Officials role. We're always in need of new officials at all skill levels! Regardless of your knowledge and experience.
