From the Board: Membership Director

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Wrestling Season!

Hopefully everyone is getting ready for the upcoming season.  I'd like to take a moment to share information on Club Charters, Memberships and Sanctioning of Events.

My name is Heidi Schmitz and I am the MN/USA Wrestling Membership Director.  I've been involved in wrestling at our Club and State level for close to 25 years, and am looking forward to working with  you in the upcoming season.  While you yourself can do Club Charters and Memberships on-line, I am available to help with any questions you may have or if you need help entering memberships.  Membership fees are staying the same as last year with the only change being that the 2-year Wrestling Leader Membership will no longer be available.  

If a member is unsure of their USA membership number please contact me so I can give you the needed information.  Please do not create a new Profile in the system as that will also create another member number for the individual.
