MN State Folkstyle Qualifying Procedures 

  1. At each qualifier points will be awarded according to your placement. 1st place will be awarded 40 points, 2nd place will receive 25 points, 3rd place will receive 10 points and 4th place will receive 0 points. 

  2. The tournaments held at LeCenter (TCU Titans), West Central, Jackson (Flat Earth), Wabasso/Red Rock Central, Moorhead, Stewartville, Lake Crystal, North Branch and Owatonna will receive double points (80, 50, 20, 0). 

  3. To qualify for State you must earn 30 points (PeeWee 6U, Bantam 8U, Intermediate 10U and Novice 12U divisions only) during the current season.  Points from last year do NOT count towards qualifying. 

  4. Total points will be tallied for the whole season and will be used as separation criteria at the State tournament. Last year’s folkstyle points (from the qualifiers and state only) will also be added in. If you’re in the same age group as last year, it will be the full points. If you’re not in the same age group as last year, it will be half the points. 

  5. Using the total points as explained above, the top 36 Pee Wee 6U, 44 Bantam 8U, 36 Intermediate 10U, 44 Novice 12U and 10 Girl wrestlers will gain this separation status. The rest will be drawn into the brackets. Exception: In the Intermediate 10U & Novice 12U age groups we will also seed up to the top 8 wrestlers.

  6. Not all brackets will have the same amount of separated wrestlers. How many in each is left to chance. 

  7. This process only applies to Pee Wee 6U, Bantam 8U, Intermediate 10U and Novice 12U divisions.  Schoolboy 14U, Cadet 16U and Girls divisions do not have to qualify for the State Folkstyle tournament. The Schoolboy 14U division will be seeded up to the top 8. 

    The list of wrestlers and their earned points from this season will be posted on the MN/USA Wrestling web site. The list will be updated as soon as the tournament provides the information to the State office. 

Clarification:  In order to participate in the Minnesota State Tournament, a wrestler must either live in Minnesota or have belonged to a Minnesota Chartered Club for the entire Folkstyle season.  You cannot compete in multiple State tournaments in the same wrestling style. If you compete in the Minnesota State tournament, you are not allowed to compete in the state tournament in which you reside.

Registration & Admission

Entry fee is $40 per wrestler. 

All wrestlers MUST have a current (2020) USA Wrestling athlete’s card.

EVERYONE (all age groups) MUST
 pre-register for the MN USA State tournaments. If you do not know your membership ID, check the procedures under the Membership tab in the PRINT USA CARD section.  If you can't find your membership id, make up a membership ID so you can get registered.  You should have your card with you at the State tournament, but more than likely you will not need to present it.  For Minnesota events, your registration will appear on a report of invalid numbers (if you made up a number) which will be reviewed. If your active membership cannot be verified, you will be contacted and will have to then present your card at the tournament. Everyone has to have an active membership to wrestle, which means you purchased it on or after 9/1/19.

The only option for registering is Online registration.  Online registration will close on March 2, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. (it is set up to automatically close, even if you are in the process of registering, so our suggestion is do not wait to start the process until the end). 

Absolutely no late registrations will be accepted. Registration can only be made Online via TrackWrestling. No exceptions.

Click here for Weighin Protocol for all MN State Tournaments

At all MNUSA State Tournaments athletes must weigh at or below the listed weight class. NO ALLOWANCES are given.  If a wrestler is over the weight for which they registered, they will be moved to the next higher weight class the weigh-in weight qualifies them for.  If the wrestler's weight qualifies him/her for the next weight class below what they registered for, the wrestler will be moved down to that weight class. MNUSAW strongly discourages weight cutting. Young wrestlers should be allowed to wrestle at their natural weight.


Match Lengths:

Pee Wee, Bantam, Intermediate & Novice: 3, 90 second periods.

Schoolboy & Cadets: 3, 2 minute periods.
