Districts – 2024
NYWA Districts are held following the Minnesota State High School Wrestling tournament. Wrestlers must attend one of the districts in order to qualify for regions. Wrestlers can attend any district they choose to BUT if they qualify at that district, they MUST attend the regional tournament that that district is under with the exception of the Early Bird. For example, a wrestler who attends and qualifies at the Austin District MUST wrestle at the Region One tournament (Rochester region). Wrestlers who place 1st or 2nd at districts will advance to the regional tournament. At regions, a wrestler must place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the weight class to advance to State (with the exception of the wildcard region which advances the top 4 to state). Then those wrestlers who place 4th, 5th or 6th place at regions can advance to the Invite tournament if they wish.
Early Bird Districts ~ Superbowl Weekend in Cloquet and WEM/JWP. Anyone can wrestle in this (K-8th); top 2 choose which region they want to attend to qualify for state! For regions 1 and 3, all 7th & 8th graders that wrestle at this early bird district will automatically qualify for regions.
