This third-year wrestling tournament will field teams across the region competing on eight mats on the floor of the US Cellular Center in Downtown Asheville. This is an individual tournament, double elimination format with wrestle backs to 6th place. This event is hosted by the U.S. Cellular Center Asheville and the Asheville Buncombe Regional Sports Commission in conjunction with our local high schools.
We will have a Girls Invitational Division this year. The fee will be $10 for a girls wrestler affiliated with a registered boy’s varsity team and $20 for a girls wrestler who is unaffiliated with a varsity team participating. The deadline for registering Girls individuals is December 1, 2019. The fee for the registration of any Girl after December 1 will be $30. Because this is a new division, it is important to get the girls registered early. We are excited about this new division and the promotion of girls wrestling.
