REGISTRATION NWWC registration is now available online through the link below. Registration dues can be paid online by credit card or at any first practice with cash or check payable to NWWC.
*Please note: Before registering for an NWWC session, all wrestlers must first have a current USA Wrestling membership. If you do not have a current USAW membership, you will need to purchase one through the USAW membership website (see costs below).
COSTS In addition to the registration fee above, a USA Wrestling membership will cost $15 to participate in practice and local tournaments (Limited membership), or $45 (Full membership) to also compete at State Championships or Freestyle/Greco tournaments (Spring tournaments). A USAW membership provides secondary insurance coverage and is purchased by credit card through the USA Wrestling membership website. A USAW membership is effective from Sept 1st to Aug 31st.

TOURNAMENTS NWWC is a sanctioned member of USA Wrestling and one of dozens of other Washington USAW clubs that compete at youth wrestling tournaments nearly every weekend throughout the regular season. Tournaments vary in location (usually at high schools around the Seattle Metro area) and all kids, all ages have the opportunity to compete each weekend and take home a medal, trophy or belt. All NWWC wrestlers are encouraged to compete at tournaments. *Parents are responsible for pre-registering their wrestler(s) for tournaments through www.trackwrestling.com. Entering a tournament by pre-registration is usually less-expensive than registering on-site and some tournaments (like the Washington State Championships) are pre-registration only. For more information on what to expect at youth wrestling tournaments, see the 'About Tournaments' section to the left.
