Message from Rick Tucci, USWOA President

Fellow Pairing and Mat officials:

The USWOA is hoping that you and your families are safe and well during the challenging time. Our Board of Directors has recently met to discuss the current state of affairs and their effect on our membership. As you may know, all USA Wrestling events have been suspended through May 10. With the COVID-19 situation in constant flux and change, the status of future USA Wrestling events has yet to be decided. Based upon the lack of event availability and unknown future, the following motion was unanimously approved by the USWOA Board of Directors on Friday April 3, 2020.

* For the membership year 2020, there will be no action taken on all upgrades, downgrades and elections until membership year 2021.

At this point, the term year rotation for Director positions has not been established. When more detail is available it will be communicated to the membership body. If you have questions regarding your UWW candidacy, please reach out to Casey Goessl or Sam Julian. (, .

Thank for all that you do for wrestling. When the sport of wrestling is able to start back up again, we will have an opportunity to once again make a difference in the lives of athletes. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy spending time with your family.

Rick Tucci
President USWOA
