District Meetings: District meetings are scheduled for Wednesday, September 14th and 21st. The Wisconsin Wrestling Federation is divided into eight districts with a representative from each district responsible for the operation of the annual district meeting. Districts will hold elections and select kids state qualifier (formerly known as kids regional) tournament sites. Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8 are up for elections this year—current clubs and USA Wrestling leaders are eligible to vote. Please select here to confirm your district, meeting location, date and time.
Annual Meeting: 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.
