All event details and the schedule can be found at https://usawrestlingevents.com/event/2400001702

 

Girls Cadet/Junior Nationals (Fargo) Qualifications Process:

The top 4 placers at the State Tournament on May 11th in each age/weight/style will qualify for Fargo. However, anyone who is an automatic qualifier does not count against our 4 spots (example: if an auto qualifier wins state, the next 4 below will qualify). Auto qualifiers include:

  • Current year 1st-6th Place at USA Wrestling Regionals (placement must be in the same age and style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U15 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U17 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U20 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Previous year 1st-8th Place at Junior Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Previous year 1st-8th Place at 16U Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Previous year age-level World Team member (must be in the same style)

You must wrestle the same weight at Freestyle/Greco State as you do at Fargo. This tournament will have a +3lb allowance.

***A table will be set up to indicate your commitment for the trip and pay your deposit.***

If a top 4 placer does NOT choose to attend Fargo or does not pay their deposit on time, the next highest placer at state will get the opportunity to go.

Each wrestler qualifying will receive an email (sent to the registration email) with payment instructions.

Southeast Regionals May 17-19 - Last Chance qualifier

Since SE Regionals is after state, this will provide additional ways to qualify. Either you can place top 6 and qualify yourself. OR someone else can place top 6 and that will open up a spot for the state because it adds to our auto-qualifiers. Placement must be in the same age, style and weight as you will go at Fargo. Please send an email to secretary@teamgeorgiawrestling.com by May 10th if your wrestler plans to go to SER for Fargo qualification. 

 

Boys Cadet/Junior Nationals (Fargo) Qualification Process:

Each state is limited to 4 wrestlers, per age group, weight class, and style (i.e. someone may qualify in Greco, but not freestyle).

The top 4 placers at the State Tournament on May 11th in each age/weight/style will qualify for Fargo. However, anyone who is an automatic qualifier does not count against our 4 spots (example: if an auto qualifier wins state, the next 4 below will qualify). Auto qualifiers include:

  • Current year 1st-6th Place at USA Wrestling Regionals (placement must be in the same age and style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at U15 Nationals (placement must be in the same style)
  • Current year 1st-8th Place at UWW Cadet Nationals (placement must be in the same style)

You must wrestle the same weight at Freestyle/Greco State as you do at Fargo. This tournament will have a +3lb allowance.

***A table will be set up to indicate your commitment for the trip and pay your deposit.***

If a top 4 placer does NOT choose to attend Fargo or does not pay their deposit on time, the next highest placer at state will get the opportunity to go.

Southeast Regionals May 17-19 - Last Chance qualifier

Since SE Regionals is after state, this will provide additional ways to qualify. Either you can place top 6 and qualify yourself. OR someone else can place top 6 and that will open up a spot for the state because it adds to our auto-qualifiers. Placement must be in the same age, style and weight as you will go at Fargo.

 

Note:  If your wrestler qualified at state for one style and is planning to go to SER to attempt qualification at the other style, please note that if their deposit from the state qualifier is not paid on May 16th, they will lose the state qualifier spot and will then be looking to qualify for both styles at SER.
