Eligibility

2019 UWW Junior World Team Selection
The representatives to the UWW Junior World Championships will be selected based upon a team trials process to be held as soon after the college school year as possible.
In Freestyle, the winner of the UWW Junior National Championships (Las Vegas) will earn an automatic berth to the best-of three wrestle-off against the challenge tournament champion.

To further our chances of performing well at the world level, USA Wrestling will incorporate the Junior Worlds with a pre-worlds competition and training camp. USA Wrestling is looking to provide an opportunity to compete internationally, as well as provide further training before the Junior World Championships. This may require that some of the funding come from the individuals themselves and/or their clubs or universities. 

Transgender Policy

USA Wrestling deems it necessary to ensure, insofar as possible, that transgender athletes are not excluded from the opportunity to participate in wrestling competitions. As such, USA Wrestling’s Gender Policy is based on the results and guidelines of the IOC actions.

Please read the transgender policy document in its entirety in order to understand the guidelines USA Wrestling follows in regards to transgender athletes competing at USA Wrestling events.
