Register for the USA Wrestling Women’s Nationals

The competition is expected to be fierce in all age divisions. The U.S. is a World power in women’s freestyle wrestling. In 2019, the last year that United World Wrestling hosted age-group World Championships, the USA won two U23 World medals, one Junior World medal, five Cadet World medals and 1o U15 World medals.

For high school wrestlers competing in the UWW Junior and UWW Cadet divisions, the results will play a huge factor in the National Girls High School rankings. Traditionally, a huge number of nationally ranked high school wrestlers enter this event to seek a spot on a U.S. World Team and to improve their national rankings.

Accommodations are also available for participants and their families, with seven hotel properties offering excellent rates for USA Wrestling members
