May begins with back-to-back weekends of wrestling in Wisconsin Dells. The WWF Freestyle and Greco State Championships are this coming weekend, followed by USA Wrestling’s Northern Plains Regional Championships. By the end of May, the final rosters for National Duals will be established, and we’ll know most of the athletes qualified for Fargo. Highlights for the month are below.
Freestyle and Greco State
The WWF Freestyle and Greco State Championships will be May 6th-7th in Wisconsin Dells. Pre-registration closes Thursday, May 4th at noon. Visit the tournament page online here for complete details.
WFS Training Team Camps
We have our final training team camp for 14U, 16U and Junior age group wrestlers at the Talon Training Center in Mauston on May 7th. These camps are open to all female wrestlers in Wisconsin with a USA Wrestling card. Select here to register. The cost is $25 per athlete.
The Team Wisconsin Gear Store is open now through May 15th. Athletes on the Fargo team are responsible for purchasing a minimum red and blue singlet. Wrestlers on the National Team that do not wish to purchase a set of singlets may use a generic reversible singlet offered by the WWF coaching staff. Athletes who purchased a uniform package in 2022 DO NOT need to purchase another gear package. The singlets are the same for 2023.
Join us on May 17th for our monthly membership meeting. The WWF hosts this series for our members during the spring to share relevant information about opportunities, Team Wisconsin, and more. An agenda for May will be released prior to the meeting. Notes and the video replay for April are posted here.

We are in need of table workers for USA Wrestling's Northern Plains Regional Championships on May 13th-14th at the Woodside Wisconsin Dells Center Dome in Wisconsin Dells. The pay per table is $100 for Saturday and $75 for Sunday. Please email Jeff at email@example.com if interested.
