Cliff Keen Southeast Regional Championships

USAW/Cliff Keen Southeast Regional Championships


The USAW/Cliff Keen Southeast Regional Championships will be held on May 27-29, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.


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


This event will include Kids, Cadet, and Junior Divisions. There will also be PeeWee and Girls Festivals.


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, as well as 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 Chief of Donor and Alumni Relations Steve Fraser was a gold medalist in 1984, and Rulon Gardner won gold in 2000.
