***Note regarding Future Champion wrestlers, once a wrestler qualifies for the MSWA Age-Wt State Championship Tournament, wrestlers are no longer eligible to compete in the Future Champion Series (which is designed for beginner and experienced wrestlers only).  Wrestlers are considered advanced once they qualify for the MSWA Age-Wt State Championship Tournament.

***Note please make sure that you check your League Schedules prior to registering for an event. If you register for an event but cannot attend, transfers/credits will not be issued.


Entry Fees: Series Events: $25 online; $40 at door-cash/checks payable to MSWA, or Credit/Debit Card (there will be an additional 3% fee for using a credit/debit card).  Save yourself money by registering online!

Entry Deadline: Online deadline is always 5pm the evening before event.  Registration is limited to the first 300 entries received. Walk-ins may be turned away.


Objective:  To provide a positive competitive wrestling experience for new to the sport or limited success level wrestlers and parents.  Attempt to match wrestlers in similar ability groups based on age, years of positive experience, previous success, and tournament placements.   Limit weight classes to 4 wrestlers in order keep tournament competition under 2 hours. Providing appropriate competition for our future champions and parents will help our sport grow.  There is no state championship for these wrestlers unless they move up to the MSWA Age-Wt State Championship Series.

Skill Levels:

  • Beginner Division – Wrestlers who have not have competed in Experienced Division  Future Champions Series, Beltway Jr. League or MSWA Age/Weight State Qualifiers.  These wrestlers may have up to 3 years of experience (or more), but with limited success, may still compete in the Beginner division.  If a wrestler is clearly competent in skill, he will be moved up to the Experienced Division.
  • Experienced Division – Wrestlers with significant success in the Beginner division or clear natural ability over a beginner wrestler, but has not yet demonstrated the skills of an Advanced wrestler.  These wrestlers may have competed but not placed in MSWA Champions Age/ Weight State Qualifiers, Beltway Jr. League or any other competitive level tournaments.  Wrestlers who have competed in the Experienced division may no longer compete in the Beginner division.  Wrestlers with superior athletic and natural ability regardless of number of years wrestled should move up to the MSWA Age-Wt State Championship Series.
  • Qualification for Series Events: Wrestlers will compete in either Beginner division or Experienced division at each event.  Please see skill level DEFINITIONS for more details if unsure if wrestler is Beginner or Experienced.  Progression, Development and Learning are the goals.

Rules:

  • Wrestling should be completed within 2 hours of wrestling start for each age group.
  • These events are for the beginner/experienced wrestlers only. Beginner/experienced wrestlers are generally seeking a fun and safe learning environment and not placed in any wrestling tournament. Wrestlers and their coaches and team who violate this rule will be disqualified from future MSWA events, including the MSWA Champions Age/Weight State Championships.
  • Singlets or very tight fitting t-shirts required. Head gear is mandatory
  • Wrestlers MUST weigh-in wearing singlets and/or t-shirts/shorts
  • Madison System:  Wrestlers will be grouped in 4-5 person brackets to wrestle round-robin. All bouts will be three periods of 1 min unless a pin or tech fall occurs
