The SCVWA Championships
Santa Cruz High School
415 Walnut Ave
Santa Cruz, CA 95060
The timeline for Registration/Weigh-ins and the tournament will be as follows:
Saturday, May 26th –
7 AM to 8:30 AM - Registration & Weigh-ins
Registration costs - $20 Freestyle, Greco for free
($5 additional for late registration (after 8:30 AM))
As usual, there will be a rules clinic around 9:15 AM for everybody on the Freestyle & Greco rules and techniques. This is also a good time to ask any questions that you might have. Wrestling will start between 9:30-10:00 AM, beginning with our Bantam, Intermediate and Open wrestlers. All other age groups will follow as quickly as we can get their brackets done and work them in.
Most of this year’s SCVWA Grand Champions will be “belted” on Satuday! The Grand Champion award is a belt. Also, please join in our fundraising raffle. Monica Moore has completed a CA USA Wrestling blanket (pictures on our FB page) to be raffled off at our championships on May 26th. Raffle tickets are $5 each. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards Regional and National team scholarships for our Santa Clara Valley Wrestling Association wrestlers.
You will need a 2011-2012 USA Athlete card and proof of age (i.e. birth certificate, driver’s license, passport) in order to compete at this tournament and all of the California State Tournaments. You can only buy your USA cards on-line.
If you do not have a current USA athlete card, you will need to purchase one online before you arrive at the tournament. Your new USA athlete card will cost approximately $40. Here is the link to purchase your card online: http://www.usawmembership.com/
Please note that ALL USA Athlete cards can only be purchased or renewed online.
ALL USA Coach’s Cards MUST be purchased or renewed online. All coaches will also need to submit to a background check every two years as part of the process when purchasing your coach’s card.
Officials 18 and older must also renew or purchase their licenses online.
As always, to help our tournaments run smoothly, the assistance of our parents and friends is needed and appreciated. See the Tournament Director to find out where you can help. Volunteers needing community service credit need to bring their paperwork for signatures.

Our wrestlers are encouraged to work the tournaments as referees, and along with earning cash, can also earn community service credit by doing so. Just bring your community service paperwork from your school for signatures.
See everybody on the mat.
