To support, promote and raise the level of competition in youth folk style wrestling by providing a series of well-organized tournaments where endurance and skill determine who prevails.

Update to COVID-19 (3/23/20):

As we continue to work through these uncertain times, we wanted to update you on where NYWA is with everything.  We remain positive and hope to still host some sort of open tournament in May as our dates for April have been cancelled.  The Mayo Civic Center has made the decision to close it's doors through April 30 and is tentatively planning to reopen May 1st.  As we move through the first few weeks of April, we will be able to make some decisions on whether an event can be held in May or not.

Regarding memberships, our policy went into effect on September 1, 2019 and will remain in effect until August 31 of this year.  We are unable to refund any memberships because the policy has been in force for over six months already and claims have been made on this policy.  This is not something NYWA can control and is why it states on our website as well as the payment page that all memberships are non-refundable.  Rest assured, if we host an event or if your child wrestles at any camps this summer, practices, etc. they will have this membership in place in the event of an injury.

We appreciate your understanding and hope that everyone remains healthy and safe!!!  Updates regarding any upcoming event will be posted on our Facebook page ( as well as here on our homepage.

Thank you!
