USA Wrestling understands the importance of developing all styles of wrestling, and is committed to the development and success of Beach wrestling.
Beach wrestling was introduced as an international style by UWW, the international governing body for wrestling, as another avenue for athletic competition. Beach Wrestling (or sand wrestling) has been a consistent style of wrestling internationally for centuries. Combining elements of all wrestling styles, including sumo, Beach events have drawn walk-up crowds when partnered with other sporting events, helping expand the reach of wrestling through non-traditional venues.
Beach Nationals will once again be held in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. See the specific information below and join us for a fun day of competition on the beach!
And for the first time ever the Beach Nationals is being held in conjunction with the U.S. Belt Wrestling Championships! Wrestlers are encouraged to participate in both styles.
