Its time to start making plans for summer wrestling with National Teams for 14U, 16U, Junior Duals, Women's Nationals, and Fargo!
We PLAN TO SEND TEAMS to 14U Duals, 16U Duals, Junior Duals, Women's Freestyle Nationals, and Fargo! We are currently soliciting interested wrestlers and coaches.
If you are interested in COACHING one of these teams CLICK HERE to compete our Coaches Application. Lead Coaches have already been approved by our Board of Directors. Assistant coaches and team leaders will be added in the coming months on an as needed basis. You MUST APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A SPOT. Coaches who apply but are not selected for travel will still be asked to be involved in pre-trip preparation, practices, camps, and training.
Athletes interested in participating should begin making plans NOW to reserve appropriate dates for the trip (pre-trip camps are not included on the dates listed on our calendar, but ARE REQUIRED as part of the trip. Camps are usually 3-4 days prior to beginning of each trip)
Cost for trips (unchanged from last year) is #1200 per dual team trip and $1700 per athlete for Fargo. Full trip details are elsewhere on our National Teams page.
