USA Wrestling is excited to announce that early registration is now open for three of its premiere Tour of America Folkstyle events: King and Queen of the Mountain (Nov. 5-7 in Colorado Springs, Colo.), the Battle of the Bell (Nov. 5-6 in Manheim, Pa.) and the Northwest Bigfoot Battle (Nov. 19-20 in Spokane, Wash.).

Competition is available across these tournaments for both boys and girls at the youth, middle school and high school levels.

This marks the 10th anniversary of the King and Queen of the Mountain event, which will be hosted at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs. This year’s tournament has multiple components: Boys K-6th Duals, Girls 1st-8th duals, an Open division for 6U through high school as well as a True Beginner division.

Friday’s wrestling will feature the duals, while Saturday hosts the 8U through middle school open divisions. The event wraps up Sunday with the high school open divisions and the True Beginners division (first or second year wrestlers). Wrestlers are encouraged to sign up early, as this event has sold out in previous years and there is a registration cap.
