2023 SCHOLASTIC STYLE
In the late Fall, USA Wrestling clubs and teams begin forming and practicing as they prepare for the new Scholastic season of wrestling in New Jersey.
USAW-NJ provides Scholastic / Folkstyle wrestling opportunities for boys and girls divisions, including: Kids (Tots, Bantams, Novices, Juniors, Intermediates, Boys and Girls combined), Cadets (Boys only) and Girls (all ages through HS). Plans are being finalized and work continues on the 2023 Kids, Cadets & Girls Scholastic NJ State Championships flyer. The 2023 Scholastic Wrestling flyer is being prepared now! Information specific to the 2023 schedule of Scholastic events / registrations will be posted HERE!
In 2023 all of the Kids age groups (Tot, Bantam, Novice, Junior and Intermediate) will compete in nine (9) Regional qualifiers between January and March of 2023. Each of the Qualifiers will be hosted by a USA Wrestling approved club and are typically held in a high school gym. The season culminates in a weekend full of State Championship matches in early to mid-March of 2023. The Cadets (boys only) and Girls (only) divisions do not have qualifying tournaments but can wrestle in the state finals that same weekend at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton.
The locations, schedule and tournament contact info will all be available in a Scholastic flyer document that will be available to view or download. As soon as that information is finalized, it will be available HERE.
