2023 Overview

The Kids Folkstyle State Championships will be March 24th and 25th, 2023 and is open to Wisconsin residents that qualify through the Folkstyle Qualifiers on March 18th. 

Registration costs $50 if done online by midnight Tuesday, March 21st, or $60 at the door. All competitors must have a USA Wrestling Membership and show their card at weigh-ins. 

NEW! Please make sure a profile photo is uploaded in the USAW membership system for wrestlers by midnight Tuesday, March 21st so they have their picture on their competitor floor pass. 

If you qualified and decide not to attend please contact Jeff Jones so an alternate can be contacted. 

Please select the flyer above to access the complete schedule, weigh-in procedures and cost information. 

NOTICE: Coaches must have a current USA Wrestling Leaders membership and a Copper Coaches Certification or higher to be matside--this includes parents, club coaches, etc. Coaches are required to purchase a coaches pass, and to have an updated profile photo in the USAW system to be matside. The online deadline is Tuesday, March 21st for $15. Late passes can be bought onsite for $30. 

Individuals 18 years of age and older must successfully complete a mandatory background check before purchasing USA Wrestling Leaders Membership. Please allow 7-10 business days for the background check process, as USA Wrestling Leaders Memberships will not be available on-site.

One adult without a USA Wrestling Leaders Membership will be allowed to accompany a wrestler to the arena floor if no coach is available but must enter the arena floor with the wrestler. This adult will not be allowed to coach and must stay within the designated area along the arena wall.  This is being done to ensure that youth wrestlers will be accompanied by someone.

Matches will be streamed on FloWrestling, here, and the finals matches in the oldest boys and girls divisions will have live commentary. 


Each year the WWF offers state qualifier patches and jackets for sale. Please place your orders by March 21st, 2023.
