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.
