We would love to work with you and your upcoming tournament. If you are interested in hosting a tournament that is sanctioned via Minnesota/USA Wrestling, please contact our Open Tournament Director, Noah Glenn.

The approval process is based upon proximity to other events and awarded first to those clubs that have hosted in previous years.  Once approved, we work together on a series of items, such as chartering your club, sanctioning the event, and advertising and promotion of the event.
