I know that some of the upcoming tournaments can be a little confusing BUT please makes sure to read the details on whether your wrestler qualifies or not to participate in it. If you have any questions PLEASE feel free to call me. If your wrestlers qualifies for USA Wrestling States and NYWAY States I would rather you attend and register for NYWAY States. I think that NYWAY States are a better experience for wrestlers and parents. Hotel information will be sent oce we know how many wrestlers qualified.
