Age Division Names Change for USA Wrestling

As of November 7th, the Executive Committee of USA Wrestling has approved a change to the names of age divisions used at all USA Wrestling Regional and National Championships. When spoken, the age division names read “9 and Under”for 9U, “12 and Under” for U12 and so on. This is being done to fall more in line with the naming conventions of other youth sports.

It should be noted that state associations and local tournament hosts are not required to use USA Wrestling age divisions (nor weight classes), but this change will impact the names of age divisions at all USA Wrestling Regional and National Championships.
