Register for the 2020 NWWC Spring Session 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).
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. Those who have purchased a $15 USAW membership and wish to compete at a State Championship or Freestyle/Greco tournament will need to upgrade to the $45 full membership. To upgrade, simply pay the difference through the USA Wrestling website ($30).

WHAT TO BRING
Always bring clean clothing to practice (a pair of shorts, t-shirt, wrestling shoes) and your own water/fluids. Wrestling shoes are available at most local sporting goods stores like Big 5 or Dick's. If you cannot find wrestling shoes locally, try my favorite online wrestling stores:
NWWC is a sanctioned member of USA Wrestling and one of many local 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 Wrestling Championships) are pre-registration only. For more information on what to expect at youth wrestling tournaments, see the 'About Tournaments' section to the left.
