by Gary Abbott, USA Wrestling

The event schedule has been posted for the USA Wrestling Folkstyle National Championships, as well as the High School National Recruiting Showcase for boys, which will be held side-by-side at the UNI Dome at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa, April 1-3.

The USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals is the annual national tournament in folkstyle (also called scholastic wrestling) for the following age divisions: 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, Junior Open and six Masters age divisions.

The 2022 High School National Recruiting Showcase for boys has been added this year, serving as the elite division for high school boys. Participants must qualify to enter in this division.

USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals/High School National Recruiting Showcase schedule

The registration for all divisions of the USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals, as well as the High School National Recruiting Showcase for boys will open on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1.

This event will serve as the first leg of USA Wrestling’s coveted Triple Crown. Anyone who wins the national title in folkstyle, Greco-Roman and freestyle the same year will receive this tremendous honor.

Details for those who wish to compete in the High School National Recruiting Showcase.

• All state champions and National Prep champions (any year) will automatically qualify for the High School National Recruiting Showcase for both boys and girls (They would not need to attend a qualifier). All previous state champions and National Prep champions must pre-register for the National Recruiting Showcase. State champions are defined as state association sanctioned state champions for boys in folkstye, and both state association sanctioned champions and recognized unofficial state champions for girls in folkstyle.

• NEW FOR 2022 – Any wrestler who has been a placewinner at the NHSCA High School Nationals (traditionally held in Virginia Beach) any year are eligible to compete at the High School National Recruiting Showcase.

• For high school boys, the National Recruiting Showcase competition will be in folkstyle (also known as scholastic wrestling), which is the style contested in college by men.

• High school wrestlers who have not won a state title or Prep National title can qualify to compete through five National Recruiting Showcase Qualifiers which are currently being finalized.

High School boys who do not qualify for the High School National Recruiting Showcase may enter the Junior Open division, and/or the 16U division (based upon eligibility), which will produce USA Wrestling national champions and All-Americans as in the past.

Note: Last year the High School National Recruiting Showcase for boys and girls were held together in Coralville, Iowa. This year, they are split apart, with the girls division being held alongside the U.S. Open in Las Vegas, Nev., April 28-29.
