The 2023 USA Wrestling Kids Nationals is set for June 26-27 at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington, Utah, with the nation’s top seven-to-14-year-old wrestlers squaring off in freestyle and Greco-Roman competition, and the prestigious USA Wrestling Triple Crown award hanging in the balance for many.

 

The Triple Crown award is presented annually to kids in the 14U, 12U and 10U age divisions who win a national championship in folkstyle, freestyle and Greco-Roman during the same season. The USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals held in Cedar Falls, Iowa, this past April was step one of the Triple Crown process. The upcoming Kids Nationals rounds out steps two and three with the freestyle and Greco-Roman national tournaments.

 

Minnesota’s Jacob Graber is the only wrestler still in the running for a repeat Triple Crown performance in the kids age divisions but hasn’t registered to compete yet. 2022 Kids Triple Crown winners currently signed up and taking the mats next week include Corey Brown of Maryland, Reece Movahead of Virginia, Tyrus Alley of Missouri and Korbin Kiessling of Maryland.

 

In addition to the Triple Crown eligible divisions of 14U, 12U and 10U, an 8U festival division will be contested for both international styles in Utah. The Greco-Roman tournament for all divisions will be held on June 26. The freestyle competition will follow the next day, June 27. Action is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. (MT) both days.

 

Custom medals and All-America honors will be presented to the top eight place winners in each weight class per style across all age divisions. Wrestlers in the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions are also eligible to earn points for the Future Olympic Rankings.

 

Late online registration for this event closes on Sunday, June 25 at Noon (MT). Athletes may sign up to participate on location for an increased entry fee. Athletes must qualify to compete at this event by wrestling in their designated USA Wrestling Regional or with approval from their state chairperson.

 

General admission tickets can be purchased on site at a rate of $15 for a single day pass or $20 for a two-day pass.

 

The USA Wrestling Kids Nationals will be broadcast live at FloWrestling.com with the purchase of a FloWrestling subscription. Brackets for the event will be located at Trackwrestling.com.
