2022 Season Information

The spring season offers a wide variety of high caliber national competitions for our wrestlers, including Dominate in the Dells (Folkstyle), Folkstyle Nationals, the National High School Recruiting Showcase (Folkstyle), the U.S. Open (freestyle and Greco), and Wisconsin's Freestyle and Greco State Championships. Please visit USA Wrestling for their complete event schedule. 

The WWF freestyle and Greco programs will travel together for the Northern Plains Regional Championships and Central Plains Regional Championships. Team Wisconsin will compete nationally at 14U, 16U and Junior National Duals, and at the 16U and Junior National Championships (Fargo). 

Let's have a great season!


Fargo

The Junior & 16U National Championships will be July 15-22 in Fargo, ND. SELECT HERE FOR QUALIFIED ATHLETES & WRESTLE-OFFS. 

The WWF is able to bring four (4) athletes per weight class for the MFS and GR programs. To qualify for the Wisconsin National Team, wrestlers must auto-qualify nationally (opportunities listed below), place top-three at the 2022 WWF Freestyle/Greco State Championships (same weight and style), or win a wrestle-off at the pre-Fargo camps in River Falls. A minimum of one wrestle-off spot is reserved at each weight class per age group and style. Since national auto-qualifiers do not count against the allotted number the state can bring, any auto-qualified wrestler that places in the top-three at WWF freestyle/Greco state opens up an additional wrestle-off spot at camp.

Auto-qualifier opportunities:

  • Current year 1st-6th Place at USA Wrestling Regionals (placement must be in the same age and style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U15 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at UWW Cadet Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at UWW Junior Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Previous year 1st-8th Place at Junior Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Previous year 1st-8th Place at 16U Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-3rd Place at WWF State Freestyle and Greco Tournaments (placement must be in the same style and weight class)

National auto-qualifiers have until June 24th (close of registration) to lock in their weight class.

The cost is $375, plus $110 per age group wrestled at Fargo. Athlete fees will cover hotel, transportation, and registration.
