See the attachment below to view the flier for the USA District 8 Tournament, to be held at Seckman High School on Feb. 23. The district tournament is the first step in the USA State series. Wrestlers who place in the top six at the district tournament qualify to compete at the USA Region D Tournament the following weekend, March 2, in Mexico, Mo. The top four placers at regionals will qualify to compete at the USA Missouri State Championship Tournament in Kansas City on March 9-10.
The Spartans have a history of great performance at the USA State Tournament, and this year should be no exception!
Although the deadline to register for the District 8 Tournament is not for a couple of weeks (Feb. 14 at practice), please let us know if your child is planning to compete in the tournament for the first time this year. All participants must have USA competition cards, and we will need to make sure we secure those before registering our club members. Note, the USA State Series is open to wrestlers in the 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U age divisions. Six-and-under wrestlers are not eligible (they have their own separate tournament, which is actually in Sedalia this weekend). So, this means no wrestlers born after 2011 may compete.
The registration envelope will be available in the board this week, and feel free to respond with any questions.
