The NHSCA has waived the necessity to qualify for this event, it is open to any/all wrestlers that wish to compete. The event will be conducted side-by-side with the High School National event. The Middle School wrestlers will be competing in the same arena with all the high school studs competing in the High School Nationals!
This as a showcase of the future high school wrestling superstars and will afford them the opportunity to be exposed to the very highest level of high school wrestling in the same arena. Following the completion of the Middle School event, the 26th Annual Senior Nationals will be wrestled. All participants in the Middle School Nationals will receive free admission to the High School Nationals.
For over 20 years, Olympic and NCAA Champions such as Cael Sanderson, Dustin Schlatter, Brent Metcalf, Kyle Dake and Jordan Oliver years have competed at the NHSCA National Wrestling Championships. Now - you have a shot at something truly special, to be a part of history -just as they did when the Senior Nationals were held in the early years! Don't miss your chance to be part of the early classes of National Middle School Wrestling Individual Champions!
