Kids Folkstyle State Qualifiers


2024 Qualifier Information

The Kids Folkstyle State Qualifiers in 2024 are on Saturday, March 16th. Scroll down for direct registration links! 

This is a qualifier for the WWF Kids Folkstyle State Championships to be held March 22nd and 24th at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. In the Boys and Girls Divisions, the TOP THREE place winners in each age and weight class qualify for the State Championships. All qualifiers must make the same weight class at the State Championships that they qualified for at the Qualifier; there is no weight allowance at state.

Wrestlers must be born in the year listed for each age division. Wrestlers born in 2009 cannot be in 9th grade or have competed in a high school tournament. Athletes must wrestle in the gender-appropriate division unless a comparable competition is not offered. Your current USA Card must be shown at weigh-ins and is required to preregister on Trackwrestling. 

Pre-registration for any of the Qualifier Sites is available on The deadline for pre-registration is midnight on 3/12/24. Pre-registration costs $22. Wrestlers can register at the door of any of the sites during the weigh-in times listed above for $40.

Coaches: Coaches are required to hold a current USA Wrestling Leader membership card, which can be purchased online through USA Wrestling’s membership system. Wrestling leaders complete mandatory safesport training and a background check through USA Wrestling. Please allow up to two weeks for the background check to go through. This is the same membership required to coach at the WWF State Folkstyle Tournament, and Dominate in the Dells, which are USA Wrestling sanctioned events hosted by the WWF in March 2024. With this membership in USA Wrestling, one will be able to access the National Coaches Education Program certification and be able to coach at chartered club practices as well. By purchasing the membership in advance of the qualifiers, anyone needing to complete the Copper (or higher) certification will have the entire week of the WWF State Folkstyle Tournament.

Falsifying a registration form by misrepresenting birth date, age or place of residence will result in the intended competitor’s suspension from the respective event, and the competitor will not be eligible for any of the WWF Championship Tournaments for one calendar year, including the corresponding event the year following.  This tournament is only open to Wisconsin residents.
