The popular and growing USA Wrestling Folkstyle National Championships will once again be hosted at the UNI Dome on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa, April 1-3.

New for 2021 is the addition of a College Men’s Open division, bringing the number of divisions to 13 this year (8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, Junior, Men’s College Open, Masters A, Masters B, Masters C, Masters D, Masters E, Masters F).

For the youth divisions between 10U and Junior, the USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals is the first leg of the coveted USA Wrestling Triple Crown, awarded to athletes who win USA Wrestling national titles in folkstyle, Greco-Roman and freestyle during the same year. In 2020, no Triple Crowns were awarded because of the pandemic shutdown, so USA Wrestling is looking forward to presenting these popular awards again.

There are some great savings available for those who book their hotel room first, and also register during the Flash Sale, which expires on March 5. Get your room and register by March 5 and save $10 on the entry fee.


Please wait 48 hours after booking your room to register. The hotels will be sending booking confirmation numbers daily which will be used to give you a discount on registration. Please use your booking confirmation number as your discount code.
