USA Wrestling’s Junior/Senior Regional events to begin in March



With the conclusion of the state high school wrestling season, it is the start of USA Wrestling's season of Junior and Senior Regionals.

Once the high school state awards have been given, high school wrestlers will have the chance to compete in the USA Wrestling Junior Regional Championships.

All events provide experience to high school athletes in the Olympic styles of wrestling, Greco-Roman and freestyle.

Wrestlers are able to compete in any Regional championship that they choose, regardless of state of residence. Junior participants must have been born on or after Sept. 1, 1987 and must be enrolled in grades 9-12.

New this year are Junior Regionals for women. There will be three Junior Women's Regionals including the Northeast Junior Women's Regional Championships in Brockport, N.Y., the Northern Plains Junior Women's Regional Championships in Waterloo, Iowa and the Southern Plains Women's Junior Regional Championships in Hays, Kan.

Weight classes for the women's Junior division are: 95 lbs., 102 lbs., 109 lbs., 116 lbs., 124 lbs., 132 lbs., 139 lbs., 146 lbs., 153 lbs., 165 lbs., 190 lbs. and 220 lbs. These are new weight classes this year.

There are eight men's Junior Regionals. Athletes can participate in as many Junior Regionals as they wish.

Weight classes for the men's Junior division are: 98 lbs., 105 lbs., 112 lbs., 119 lbs., 125 lbs., 130 lbs., 135 lbs., 140 lbs., 145 lbs., 152 lbs., 160 lbs. 171 lbs., 189 lbs., 215 lbs., and 285 lbs.

The top three place winners in each weight class in the men's division at each Junior Regional qualifies for their state team for the ASICS/Vaughan Junior National Championships in Fargo, N.D. on July 20-26. However, athletes must still adhere to all state policies and only qualify in the style in which they place.

All athletes must register online by the deadlines to receive a discounted entry fee. To register online, click the link below.
