Happy New Year, hoping this new season finds you healthy, happy and getting a lot of wrestling in! The WWF has all their schedules in place and we look forward to another busy year for our members. There will be training sites available again this year, you can follow the schedule on the website, make sure to get signed up when those opportunities are presented.
The holiday tournaments were loaded with talent and great matches; there were numerous competitors that competed at a high level that have been part of the WWF throughout the years. The WWF always will make room for members to attend our summer camps for Greco and Freestyle and encourage you to consider participating.
The Youth State Folkstyle Qualifiers will be held on the 15th of March in all eight districts, weigh ins will be the Friday night before on the 14th. There will be several satellite weigh in sites available to reduce travel when possible. The State Tournament will be held in Madison at the Alliant Energy Center on Friday the 28th of March and Saturday March 29th. All participants will need to have a USA Wrestling membership and coaches that want access to the floor at Madison will need to have a current USA Coaches membership. Competitors can purchase cards on site, through your local club or online at www.usamembership.com. Coaches need to purchase their cards online and complete a successful background check prior to purchasing the membership; both of those are at www.usamebership.com

Yours in wrestling,
Dave Black, Wisconsin Wrestling Federation Chairman
