Looking to host a tournament?  

In order to sanction an event or host a tournament, a club must be chartered prior to completing sanction event form.  Clubs wishing to host a tournament are required to bid a date for the event at the annual bid meeting.  This annual meeting is always the second Sunday of September.  The ISWA and USAW provides all of the necessary updates that clubs need for the new season.  Bidding a tournament date helps our wrestling clubs work together in supporting one another so as not to have too many specific events in the same area on the same dates.  This meeting also allows the ISWA to support and recognize those clubs that are partnering with one another to grow Indiana wrestling.  

The ISWA promotes all sanctioned events on all of its social media links and  The ISWA also provides support to tournament directors in staffing tournaments with pairing officials and mat officials and provide support in conducting tournaments in a regulated and safe environment.  

Freestyle State Tournament Qualifier Detail


The ISWA has amended it's Freestyle State Qualification Policy for this 2019 season to allow for just one of the two ISWA sanctioned freestyle tournament pre-requisites to be substituted with one of the following national tournaments:

·       NHSCA High School Nationals

·       USAW Folkstyle National Championships

·       FloNationals

·       NWCA National Scholastic Duals

·       Heartland USA National Duals (waiver for Cadets only)

·       The Dream Team Classic

·       UWW Junior National Championships

While the ISWA is still working to provide support member clubs hosting sorely needed Freestyle (and Greco) competitions,  we are making this adjustment in an effort to support our more ambitious athletes as they seek out higher levels of competition during this time period where many national competitions are scheduled.  (NOTE: there is only a 2-meet pre-req for Freestlyle State, not Greco State.)
