USA Wrestling has announced the fifth of its eight High School National Recruiting Showcase Qualifiers.

The USA Wrestling High School National Recruiting Showcase – Wisconsin Qualifier will be held at the Woodside Wisconsin Dells Center Dome, March 11-13.

This will join the national schedule, along with the Pennsylvania qualifier set for State College, Pa. (March 12-14), the Arizona qualifier set for Bullhead City (March 16-18), the Utah qualifier to be held in North Logan (March 11-13) and the Florida qualifier set for Orlando (March 12-14).

These events and the entire High School National Recruiting Showcase series, is open only to boys and girls athletes who qualify for the USA Wrestling Junior age division. Wrestlers must have been born September 1, 2001 or after, plus must be enrolled in grades 9-12. Athletes from any state may enter any of the eight qualifiers.

The qualifier events will feature top High School boys’ and girls’ wrestlers from around the country. For the boys (contested in folkstyle) and girls (contested in freestyle), the top five place winners in each weight class in the eight qualifiers will earn a spot in the High School National Recruiting Showcase (which will be held during the weekend of March 26-28 at a location to be announced shortly).

Please note that state champions and National Prep champions (any year) who meet the age and grade requirements automatically qualify for the High School National Recruiting Showcase for both boys and girls (They do not need to attend a qualifier). All previous state champions and National Prep champions MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THE NATIONAL RECRUITING SHOWCASE BY MARCH 1 to guarantee their spot. State champions are defined as state association sanctioned state champions for boys, and both state association sanctioned champions and recognized unofficial state champions for girls.

USA Wrestling will be releasing the dates and sites for the remaining three High School National Recruiting Showcase Qualifiers as soon as they are confirmed. The date and sites for the High School National Recruiting Showcase final event will also be posted soon. Please visit USA Wrestling’s website and its social media platforms for more information.

All eight qualifiers, as well as the High School National Recruiting Showcase, will be broadcast by Trackwrestling.

The intent of the series is to provide unrestricted access for every college coach and recruiter to the single-highest concentration of high school talent, with every match available online through host broadcaster Trackwrestling.

As with all events on the USA Wrestling national schedule, this series will be conducted following the requirements of the state and local health authorities, as well as using the safety provisions of the USA Wrestling Return to Events Guidelines. USA Wrestling and the local organizers will monitor data and local trends closely leading up to the event.
