USA Wrestling NJ has re-organized the Kids State Championship Event and qualifying process. Additional information to be announced soon.
As we approach the 2021 High School Wrestling season, USA Wrestling New Jersey is in full support of and hopes the NJSIAA successfully hosts an individual State Championship event for both boys and girls. However, we also recognize the nuances, challenges, and potential roadblocks that may prevent the NJSIAA from completing its intended plans. Therefore, USA Wrestling New Jersey is simultaneously planning to host an individual state tournament from April 30 - May 2, for both girls and boys, as a backup plan. We are proceeding with planning as if our event will take place, to ensure we are prepared if the NJSIAA State Championships must be canceled. The event will not be run exactly the same as previous State Tournaments because we must abide by all COVID-19 protocols, putting the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, referees, event workers, and parents first. However, the event will host a field of competitors who have earned the opportunity to compete for a spot on the podium and we will crown 2021 State Champions if the NJSIAA does not. We will provide more details as they are finalized and appreciate your anticipated patience.
