WWF Clinics Leading up to Freestyle and Greco State
The WWF is partnering with the hosts of three local events to run freestyle and Greco technique sessions again this season to highlight the Olympic styles, and to share more about the opportunities for our athletes within the WWF FS & GR programs! These clinics are open to all attendees of the events and are a great opportunity for younger athletes to get exposed to the W WF head coaches.

  • Clinic with Junior Freestyle Head Coach Nick Becker - April 13th at the Mukwonago Freestyle/Greco Tournament in Mukwonago. 
  • Clinic with Junior Greco Head Coach Ty Pelot - April 14th at the Go Big or Go Home Freestyle & Greco tournament in Green Bay.
  • Clinic with 16U Freestyle Head Coach Newton Smerchek - April 20th at Sparta Two-Style Challenge in Sparta. 

Gear Store

The gear store is closed for the first round of orders. Orders will be delivered approximately the first week(end) of April. 

Gear Store FAQ

  • Are these the singlets athletes purchase for Fargo? Yes. The singlets in this gear store are our new singlets for 2024! You can choose to purchase these now, or wait until the second store opens after freestyle and Greco state in May. Fargo athletes are responsible for purchasing their own singlets, and singlets from prior years may not be used. Wrestlers on the National Team who do not wish to purchase a new set of singlets may use a generic reversible singlet offered by the WWF coaching staff.
  • Do athletes on the National Dual teams need to purchase singlets? No. Athletes on the National Dual teams are provided singlets from the WWF coaching staff for the duration of competition.
  • Will there be another chance to order gear? Yes. The gear store will open for a second wave of orders after the WWF Freestyle and Greco State Championships in May.

Looking for New Freestyle/Greco Officials

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.

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.
