Event Information

USA Wrestling has created a Grand Event in the city that never sleeps.   The 2015 Asics Opens Wrestling Championships has something for everyone.   This event is billed as “All Ages, All Styles”.   Younger athletes will have a chance to watch their heroes compete in the U.S. Senior Open.  The U.S. Senior Open offers athletes who compete in Men’s Freestyle, Women’s Freestyle and Greco-Roman.   These are future World and Olympic Team Athletes.

The U.S. Open also offers up and coming 17-20 year olds a chance to compete in Men’s Freestyle and Greco-Roman at the Junior National Championships – UWW Age Group.  These young athletes have a chance to qualify for the Final U.S. World Team Trials in the UWW Junior Division.

The Western Junior Regional offers athletes in 9th thru 12th grades a chance to compete against some of the best High School wrestlers in the country.   The Western Junior Regional offers both men and women an opportunity to compete in Men’s Freestyle, Women’s Freestyle and Greco-Roman.  This event is the mini junior national championships.   Athletes who place at this event are often successful later in the summer at the Junior and Cadet National Championships.

The Veterans National Championship offers athletes who are past the age of 30 years old a chance to continue their inner warrior and show people they still have what it takes to win the coveted USA Wrestling “Stop Sign”. 

Last but not least the US Open offers youth from 5 to 16 years old a chance to wrestle in Folkstyle, Freestyle and Greco-Roman.  These athletes get to compete in the same arena with the best wrestlers in the U.S. Click here for the Vegas Kids/Cadet page.

All finals will be contested on two raised platforms known as the “Golden Circles”.  Senior level athletes will get to feel the excitement with production lighting and intro music.
