2021 ND USAW State Tournament Information

March 26th and 27th

Attached below are the fliers for the 2021 State Folkstyle Individual Tournament March 26th and 27th, the 2021 State Dual Tournament March 26th, and the 2021 State GIRLS Championships on March 26th!!  The tournaments will be held at the Bismarck Event Center in the main ARENA.  Please enter through the main arena doors for tickets, coaches passes, and weigh-ins.

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE AT TRACKWRESTLING.COM by March 24th at 8pm.  Individual Tournament Registration:  Trackwrestling registration will be available by Sunday the 7th of March.

Dual Tournaments:  Dual Teams must be registered by the Team Head Coach.  Please email:, by March 12th with your intent to be in Group 1, Group 2, or Group 3.
Once we have your confirmation we will email you your login information for Trackwrestling by March 22nd so you can enter your lineup before the deadline of March 24th, at 8 pm.  Teams are allowed 4 coaches but 2 MUST be used as table workers (table workers do not require copper certification).
Coaches: To abide with state rules, no floor passes will be sold nor will the tournament be seeded in anyway.  To gain access to the floor you must have a current USA copper Coaches Card AND be on the list provided by the head coach (see flyer for details).  DO NOT wait until the last week to get a card as it takes over a week to get your background check back and Safe Sport certification takes 2hrs to complete.  Copper certification can be found at

Awards:  MATPAC will once again be providing the best awards in the state to reward these kids for their hard work.  Trophies will be awarded for 1st – 6th place.  Champions will receive a unique trophy and a state champion t-shirt.  We will also be providing awards to the top two teams with 30+ wrestlers and those with less than 30 wrestlers.

Please see the links to the fliers below for detailed information.

We will be making adjustments to assist with congestion including moving the dual tournament up 1 hour.

Please note that you MUST BRING A USAW CARD WITH YOU WHEN WEIGHING IN.  This is to help with weigh times and to get kids through the line faster.  Many of the kids can't speak up, don't know their names, etc... so we are requiring USAW printed cards to assist with this so coaches please make sure you parents know this!!
