Girls Folkstyle Nationals and Folkstyle Duals schedule
Last year, wrestlers from 46 states participated in the Girls Folkstyle Nationals, and we expect the tournament to continue to expand.
The event is included as part of the Girls Triple Crown at the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and Junior levels.
Omaha becomes the third city to host this event, which was created in 2008 and hosted in Oklahoma City, Okla. for more than a decade. Most recently, the competition was held in Colorado Springs, Colo.
