REGISTRATION
Registering your wrestler with NWWC is easy. Simply bring the following to the first practice (please come early on your first day):
1. A copy/printout of the wrestler's current USA Wrestling membership card. This card is proof of insurance and a 'MUST HAVE' before stepping onto the wrestling mat. Click here to renew your card or to purchase your first USA Wrestling Membership Card.
2. A signed copy of NWWC's Registration & Waiver Form.
3. A signed copy of NWWC's Concussion Acknowledgment Form.
4. Registration fee (cash, or checks payable to NWWC).

WHAT TO BRING
Always bring clean clothing to practice (a pair of shorts, t-shirt, wrestling shoes) and your own water/fluids.

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 $40 (Full membership) to compete at State Championships or any Freestyle and/or Greco tournaments (Spring wrestling). A USAW membership provides secondary insurance coverage and is purchased by credit card through the USA Wrestling website. A USAW membership is effective from Sept 1st to Aug 31st. Those who have purchased a $15 USAW membership and wish to compete at any State Championship or any of the Freestyle/Greco tournaments will need to upgrade to the $40 full membership. To upgrade, simply pay the difference through the USA Wrestling website ($25). 


TOURNAMENTS
NWWC is a sanctioned member of USA Wrestling and one of hundreds 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. Please email Coach Michaelson at least three (3) days prior to any tournament at which you plan to compete. For more information on what to expect at youth wrestling tournaments, see the 'About Tournaments' section to the left.
