Wrestler Information

  • National Tournament entry fee – If you attend National Tournaments the SDWCA will pay for one tournament entry fee for a wrestler 5th grade or younger .
  • Kids can move up an age group but it has to be done at districts.  After Districts there will be no movement.
  • We will look at the Weights the next three years to decide if we need to change our weight classes due to changes in sizes.
