Veteran's National Championships

Event Information

USA Wrestling has created a Grand Event in the city that never sleeps.   The 2016 Championships has something for everyone.   This event is billed as “All Ages, All Styles”, offering athletes who compete in Men’s Freestyle, Women’s Freestyle and Greco-Roman.   These are future World and Olympic Team Athletes.

The  17-20 year olds will have 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 a great preparation event for the 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 25 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 youth from 5 to 16 years old a chance to wrestle in Folkstyle, Freestyle and Greco-Roman. Click here for the Vegas Kids/Cadet page.

Whether you are an Athlete, Coach, Official or Fan come to the greatest wrestling show on the planet featuring “All Ages, All Styles”.  There will be something for everyone including clinics and autographs.
