Northeast Regional Championships

Northeast Regional Championships


 

The Northeast Regional Championships will be held in
East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania from May 2-4, 2014.

 

USA Wrestling does not charge for adjusting weight classes, even at weigh-ins, so sign up early to guarantee your spot in the event.

 

USA Wrestling’s regional events are contested in freestyle and Greco-Roman, the only two styles of wrestling at the Olympic level. Freestyle wrestling is exciting, creative, and dynamic because points can be scored from almost anywhere. The most recent Olympic wrestling gold medals were won by freestyle wrestlers, Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner in 2012, and  Henry Cejudo in 2008. Other notable freestyle wrestlers include Cael Sanderson (Olympic gold medalist and four-time undefeated NCAA champion), Jake Herbert (World silver medalist and two-time NCAA Champion), and Tervel Dlagnev (World bronze medalist and two-time Division II NCAA Champion). Greco-Roman wrestling is known for powerful lifts and big throws, as all attacks must be made above the waist. Current National Greco-Roman Head Coach Steve Fraser was a gold medalist in 1984, and Rulon Gardner won gold in 2000.

Age Groups contested at this event include Kids Division, Cadet Division, Junior Division and Senior Division.  The Senior Division is an open tournament and is a qualifier for the 2014 Senior World Team Trials.  Senior Division Freestyle will weigh-in on Friday, May 2 only and if wrestling Greco-Roman only you will weigh-in on Saturday evening or Sunday morning at normally scheduled weigh-ins.  See Event Schedule. 

Champions in the Senior division who meet the eligibility criteria will qualify for the 2014 World Team Trials.
