USA Wrestling

New for the 2014 - 2015 Season - Hopefully you'll find the changes helpful...

The purpose of the USA Wrestling - New Jersey (USAW-NJ) web site is to promote the sport of wrestling in New Jersey by informing, creating interest, and being responsible to the needs of New Jersey Wrestling. Although it is supported and controlled by USAW-NJ and its corresponding volunteers, the web site will seek to assist all who have an interest in wrestling. Priorities will be established based on costs, space, time to produce the web site, and what the chairman, webmaster and USAW-NJ representatives feel is best for the growth of wrestling.

"When I'd get tired and want to stop, I'd wonder what my next opponent was doing. I'd wonder if he was still working out. I'd try to visualize him. When I could see him still working, I' start pushing myself. When I could see him in the shower, I'd push myself harder."
