Has it been a long, cold winter? No worries. USA Wrestling's 2007 Beach Wrestling season will be starting shortly.

There will soon be numerous opportunities for intense wrestling competition in the sand, as well as some fun in the sun for the wrestling community.

USA Wrestling has announced the site and date of the 2007 U.S. Beach National Championships, which will be held in Rochester, N.Y., July 6-8.

A number of other Beach Wrestling events have been planned across the nation, giving wrestlers a chance to test their skills at a Beach Wrestling event in their area.

Many of these events are in the process of being sanctioned. In addition, USA Wrestling expects more events to be planned in other states. This Beach Wrestling Schedule will be updated on a regular basis all spring and summer.

If you will be hosting a USA Wrestling-sanctioned Beach Wrestling event and wish to be included in this schedule, send complete information to Gary Abbott of USA Wrestling at gabbott@usawrestling.org or via phone at 719-598-8181.
