    Changes made to University Nationals age limit

    In preparation for the 2013 Summer Universiade, or World University Games, USA Wrestling has changed the age requirements for the 2013 University National Championships.  The reason for this change is to allow all wrestlers who are eligible to compete internationally into the University Nationals, as this tournament is serving as the University World Team Trials as well. 

     Only the following individuals may participate as competitors in the 2013 University Nationals:

          1.      Students who are currently officially registered as proceeding towards a degree or diploma at a university or similar institute whose status is recognized by the appropriate national academic authority of their country.
    Former students of the institutions mentioned above who have obtained their academic degree or diploma in the year preceding the event.

     All competitors must be U.S. citizens.  They must be at least 17 and less than 28 years of age on January 1, 2013.  Athletes must have graduated from high school in 2012 or before.  2013 graduates are not eligible.


    Athletes MUST present proof of current USA Wrestling Membership Card (actual card or photo copy) at registration AND weigh-ins. If you do not have a copy of your USA Wrestling Membership Card, please contact your State Membership Director prior to the event. USA Wrestling Athlete Membership Cards can be acquired from the State Chairperson or State Membership Director of the contestant's state of residence or online (click HERE).


    All coaches that wish to gain access to the competition floor to coach athletes must have a current USA Wrestling Coaches Card. All USA Wrestling Coaches Membership Cards MUST be attained prior to the event, due to mandatory background checking. For a Coaches Membership Card, please click HERE. PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 30 DAYS FOR COMPLETION OF USAW COACHES MEMBERSHIP/BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESS.


    FILA Cadet Division: Top three place winners at this event qualify for your state's Cadet national teams (above the state limit) in the style in which you qualify. This is only for athletes born in 1997 or 1998. Athletes born in 1996 do not qualify for their Cadet national team. Athletes must still adhere to all state policies and you qualify in the style in which you place. The ASICS/Vaughan Junior & Cadet National Championships will be held in Fargo, ND, from July 12-20. Also, the champion in each FILA Cadet weight class qualifies to represent the United States at the 2013 FILA Cadet World Championships.
