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.

Northeast Regional
  • All Day Event Ical_event_icon
  • East Stroudsburg University, Koehler Fieldhouse, 213 Smith St., East Stroudsburg, PA
  • USA Wrestling’s regional events are contested in freestyle and Greco-Roman, the only two styles of wrestling at the Olympic level. Freestyle wrestling is exciting, creative, and dynamic because points can be scored from almost anywhere. The most recent Olympic wrestling gold medals were won by freestyle wrestlers, Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner in 2012, and  Henry Cejudo in 2008. Other notable freestyle wrestlers include Cael Sanderson (Olympic gold medalist and four-time undefeated NCAA champion), Jake Herbert (World silver medalist and two-time NCAA Champion), and Tervel Dlagnev (World bronze medalist and two-time Division II NCAA Champion). Greco-Roman wrestling is known for powerful lifts and big throws, as all attacks must be made above the waist. Current USA Wrestling Chief of Donor and Alumni Relations Steve Fraser was a gold medalist in 1984, and Rulon Gardner won gold in 2000.

    Age Groups contested at this event include Kids Division, Cadet Division, Junior Division and Senior Division.  The Senior Division is an open tournament and is a qualifier for the 2015 Senior World Team Trials.  Senior Division Freestyle will weigh-in on Friday, May 1 only and if wrestling Greco-Roman only you will weigh-in on Saturday evening or Sunday morning at normally scheduled weigh-ins.  See Event Schedule. 

    Champions in the Senior division who meet the eligibility criteria will qualify for the 2015 World Team Trials.

Dan Gable, Olympic Gold Medalist, National Champ, Greatest Coach Ever

"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."
