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.  

All ISWA State Championships are closed to out-of-state wrestlers. Indiana residents may only compete in them.

The following guidelines apply to Out-of-State wrestlers desiring to participate in ISWA scheduled tournaments:

  • Indiana residents only are allowed to compete.

Any athlete, coach or club who violates this policy may be charged with fraud under the Rules of Disciplinary Procedures of the ISWA By-Laws which states the following:

Fraud: Is the falsification of the truth for the purpose of participation in any competition, or exercise in any sport wherein the athlete, coach, manager or other person has acted with deceit, or is guilty of misrepresentation, or concealment, or a misstatement of fact or intention. Persons who knowingly violate the rules are subject to suspension as stated in the By-Laws.
