Pre-Fargo and Camp

  • Many college coaches attend Fargo. All juniors and second-year 16U athletes are encouraged to submit a recruiting profile. Examples will be sent through TeamSnap--try out Canva! 
  • MFS: All non-auto qualifiers must report for wrestle-offs at 1130AM on July 14th, within 5lbs of their weight class, regardless of how many athletes are in their respective weight classes. Only the Fargo staff and officials will be allowed at wrestle-offs. Athletes that do not make the team will have their Fargo registration reimbursed. Location details are in TeamSnap.
  • MFS and GR: Auto-qualified athletes report to the hotel during regular check-in. Location and camp details are outlined in TeamSnap.
  • WFS: All athletes will report to the hotel for check-in on Wednesday, July 12th. Location and camp details are outlined in TeamSnap. There are no wrestle-offs this season.
  • Athletes are encouraged to meal prep and bring a small cooler (the fridges are small). There is a continental breakfast and grocery store located within walking distance of all hotels.
  • All camp practices are focused on technical and tactical fine-tuning as athletes taper for competition. Please do not plan to use them as a primary tool for weight management.
  • Please bring gear for 4 practices. Laundry facilities will be available—bring coins and detergent.


  • NEW in 2023: 16U and Juniors will wrestle on the same days in ALL styles. WFS July 15-16, MFS July 17-19, GR July 21-22. There is no competition on Thursday. The complete event schedule is posted here.
  • MFS is the only style to weigh in twice. Wrestlers will weigh in Sunday at scratch weight, and again on Wednesday morning with a +2lb weight allowance. There is no weight allowance for athletes also competing in Greco.
  • Athletes will travel as a team back to River Falls at the conclusion of each championship finals and will spend the night in River Falls. Parent pick up will be the following morning between 8 and 830AM. Please be prompt. Athletes that drive themselves to camp will check in their keys to the coaching staff, and will not be allowed to use their vehicles during camp; they will be required to spend the night in River Falls upon return for safety.
  • Eliminated athletes may choose to leave with their parents before the conclusion of their respective events, but they must sign out with the designated check-out coach. This sign-out applies to ALL athletes.
  • Athletes competing in both freestyle and Greco-Roman will stay in Fargo during the “off” day.
  • Athletes are encouraged to meal prep for camp and competition. Athletes are not allowed to leave for dinner with their parents after weigh-ins. Parents may bring athletes food to their hotel, they can order food, or get food with coaches as a group. There is a grocery store.
  • Fargo is nearly cashless—athletes are encouraged to have a debit card. Athletes are advised not to bring material items into the FargoDome.
  • Schedule details are posted for all styles and age groups in TeamSnap.

We look forward to another great year at Fargo!
