FORT WAYNE, Indiana – Youth wrestlers, both boys and girls, are training across the nation in preparation for the 2024 USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle Nationals, which will be hosted in the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana, January 26-28.


This is a brand new event, which was created by USA Wrestling after it decided to separate its youth age divisions from the high school age divisions at the national tournament level. The age divisions being contested at the event in Fort Wayne include 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U. A large and competitive field is expected in every division.


This event also brings boys and girls together for their Folkstyle National Championships for the very first time. In past years, the boys and girls competed in different events, held at different locations and dates.


The competition has also been moved up into late January, which better aligns with the Youth Folkstyle schedule across the nation.

This event is included in the prestigious USA Wrestling Triple Crown for both boys and girls at all four age levels. Future Olympian Ranking points can be earned at this event for 8U-14U age divisions for both Boys and Girls.


The top eight placewinners in each weight class will reach the podium, receive awards and become USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle All-Americans. There will also be an Outstanding Wrestler award and a Team award for each of the standard USA Wrestling divisions.


Champions in each division will receive a custom USA Wrestling Champion Belt. This is a newly designed belt, which athletes and their families will take pride in bringing home with them. Watch USA Wrestling’s platforms for more on the new belts.


Don’t miss out on competing in the outstanding event, where you can test yourself against the nation’s best at your age-level.
