USA Wrestling News and Events

USA Wrestling played a critical role in my development. The exposure to freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling enhanced my skills and confidence tremendously and helped me become a State Champion and earn a college scholarship. Earning a “double” Junior National Championship by winning both styles was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

When I was a senior in high school, I watched the Olympics on TV and saw many of my heroes win Olympic Gold. I had met and learned from many of these legends at summer camps, and it was while watching these USA Wrestling athletes excel that my Olympic dream became a concrete goal for me. I am grateful that USA Wrestling helped prepare me to excel in our sport so that I could make our US Olympic Team. USA Wrestling and the NYAC invested tens of thousands of dollars and many hundreds of hours into my development, and the knowledge and experience I gained was priceless. Representing USA Wrestling and our country in the Olympics was the culmination of over a decade of commitment to excellence.

“Wrestling is training for the rest of your life”. This is the slogan of USA Wrestling and one of our core Gold Medal Training Camp Slogans. We share this mission in our effort to help dedicated wrestlers excel in school, wrestling, and life. There is much more to our Gold Medal Camp System, USA Wrestling and our sport than just wins and losses. We want to help prepare you to excel in life.

Today USA Wrestling is a leader in providing folkstyle wresting training and competition in addition to the Olympic Styles. I encourage you to support USA Wrestling and take advantage of the wide variety of opportunities they provide. Please read below to learn more about USA Wrestling and the many events they conduct for ALL ages.
