Women’s Weight Classes

Keeping track of the different weight classes can get tricky,  as a female wrestler moves on from youth wrestling to high school to college and beyond. Hopefully this cheat sheet for women’s age divisions and weight classes will be helpful. The following information is effective September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019. Divisions affected by some change are highlighted in yellow. (Weights are in pounds unless otherwise stated.)

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 will be read “9 and Under, 12 and Under, etc.” 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.
