USA Wrestling’s Beach Wrestling schedule hits stride with four hot June events

Summer is here, and USA Wrestling's Beach Wrestling schedule is heating up with plenty of action in June.

There are four exciting sanctioned Beach Wrestling events held across the nation this month, offering wrestlers of all ages a chance for top quality competition, as well as the fun and excitement that comes with a day at the beach.

June events will be held in Virginia, New Jersey, Oregon and Rhode Island, each with their own special activities and attractions.

These early season events will offer athletes a chance to improve their Beach Wrestling skills, in preparation for the 2007 U.S. Beach National Championships, which will be held in Rochester, N.Y., July 6-8.

Kicking off the action this weekend, June 8-10 , is the North American Beach Wrestling Championships in Virginia Beach, Va. Organized by talented Beach Wrestling promoter Frank Lipoli, this event enters its second year on the beautiful Virginia shore. It is held alongside a popular Beach Sand Soccer tournament, and is a highlight of the summer season there.
