The third annual King of the Mountain tournament will be held at the Douglas County Events Center in Castle Rock, Colo., on December 6-7.

This is the second event in the 2013-2014 Folkstyle Tour of America Series. After a sell-out at the Bigfoot Battle in Spokane, Wash., USA Wrestling is looking forward to a large turn-out this weekend.

All wrestlers will weigh-in on Friday. True Beginner Bantam and True Beginner Intermediate divisions will compete on Friday evening. All other divisions will compete on Saturday and are eligible for satellite weigh-ins on Friday (see list under Weigh-ins/Medical here). 

This event offers the following divisions:
Bantam (2006-2007)
Intermediate (2004-2005)
Novice (2002-2003)
Middle School (1999-2001 plus currently enrolled in grades 6-8)

True Beginner divisions are available in the Bantam, Intermediate, and Novice age groups for wrestlers with less than two years of experience.

The detailed event schedule is available here:

The top six (6) place winners in the regular divisions will receive a trophy. All wrestlers in the True Beginner brackets will receive a medal.
