USA Wrestling

USA Wrestling is the National Governing Body for the Sport of Wrestling in the United States and, as such, is its representative to the United States Olympic Committee. Simply, USA Wrestling is the central organization that coordinates amateur wrestling programs in the nation and works to create interest and participation in these programs.

It is not the wild, or "off the top rope", stuff you might have seen on television. The many programs and activities conducted by USA Wrestling or the hundreds of chartered clubs, provide opportunities for youth and adults alike to gain an understanding and appreciation for the international styles of wrestling, Freestyle and Greco-Roman, and folkstyle (scholastic and collegiate) which is the style practiced at high schools and colleges across the country.

USA Wrestling has more than 159,000 members. These members include athletes of all ages, coaches, officials, parents and fans striving together to strengthen the sport. Part of USA Wrestling's mission is to foster grassroots development for the sport.

Each year, USA Wrestling charters over 2900 wrestling clubs and sanctions over 1600 local, state, regional and national competitions. These opportunities and more are just a small part of the exciting world of USA Wrestling.

Northwest Junior Collegiate Wrestling Association

“Portland Metropolitan Wrestling Association” was formed in 1971, following a discussion with (5) different leagues to organize a support organization to help facilitate friendly organized tournaments for the wrestlers in the area. The original club philosophy was to provide support for the Portland Metropolitan Area. Originally only clubs from this region were allowed to join. Eventually this grew into southwest Washington and other Oregon organizations joining the club.

Oregon Wrestling Association

The Oregon Wrestling Association advocates, promotes, coordinates and provides opportunities for amateur wrestlers to achieve their full human and athletic potential. The association primarily sponsors and coordinates tournaments for youth wrestlers and all wrestlers competing in collegiate (folkstyle) and the international styles of freestyle, greco-roman and beach wrestling.
