USA Wrestling is set to host the 2022 U.S. Open, which is returning to the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, April 27-May 1. This premier multi-age event on the national schedule returns to one of top sports and tourist locations on the planet.

The event will feature the national tournaments for the Senior (MFS, WFS, GR), UWW Junior (MFS, GR), UWW Cadet (MFS, GR), UWW U15 (MFS, GR), UWW Futures (MFS, GR), Girls High School National Recruiting Showcase and Masters divisions.

The entire tournament will be live streamed on



Note: the age-group women’s freestyle national tournaments will be held in Texas in May 2022.

Registration for all divisions opens Jan. 1 and will run through April 25. Save money off of your registration by booking your hotel room through the South Point. BOOK ROOMS NOW, REGISTER LATER.

In order to assure room availability and registration discount, you must book rooms at South Point prior to registering. Room reservations and discount codes are not guaranteed after this block sells out. The deadline to book rooms for discounted rates at South Point is March 28, 2022. USA Wrestling is not responsible for hotel room shortages. Book now to alleviate higher hotel and entry fee prices.

It’s important to know that the NFL Draft will be happening in Las Vegas during this event, and there is expected to be a shortage of hotel rooms as well as substantial hotel rate increases.

The new event on the schedule is the High School National Recruiting Showcase for girls, which was held last year in Coralville, Iowa. All current and past high school state champions in Grades 9-12 automatically qualify for this event, as well as those who earn their spot through a Showcase Qualifier. This event is in freestyle wrestling, which is the collegiate style for women, and will be watched closely by college coaches and recruiters.

The Senior national tournaments at the U.S. Open will serve as a qualifier for the World Team Trials. For more information on Team USA Senior World selection criteria, visit

This will also serve as the Cadet World Team Trials for men’s freestyle and Greco-Roman, and will be a part of the UWW U15 men’s freestyle and Greco-Roman Pan American Championships selection. More details will be announced soon.

In order to gain access to the competition floor, coaches must have a USA Wrestling Leader membership card and Bronze or higher coaches certification. Coach credentials can only be ordered online using the USA Wrestling membership system. Plan ahead due to the membership requirements. Advance coaches registration is important because all credentials will be produced prior to the event with headshots of each accredited coach.

Tickets can be purchased at the South Point Box Office, which will be available soon. Tickets will be $40 for a day pass or $80 for a week pass. VIP ticket information will be coming soon.

The U.S. Open will be conducted following the requirements of the state and local health authorities, as well as using the safety provisions of the USA Wrestling Return to Events Guidelines. USA Wrestling and the local organizers will monitor data and local trends closely leading up to the event.
