2024 National Team Recruit Profiles Folder


Fargo

The Junior & 16U National Championships will be July 12-20 in Fargo, ND.

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 2024 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 U17 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U20 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)
  • Previous year age-level World Team member (must be in the same style)

Cost & Registration: Freestyle or Greco (1 style) $525. Both styles $670. Athlete fees will cover hotel, transportation and registration. The cost does NOT include the uniform package/singlets. Registration closed June 21st.
