USA Wrestling is excited to announce the brand new 2021 High School Recruiting Showcase event series. Virginia has been selected to host one of the 8 qualifiers. The qualifier events will feature the top High School boys’ and girls’ wrestlers from around the country. For the boys (contested in Folkstyle) and girls (contested in Freestyle), the top five (5) place winners from each qualifier will qualify for the 2021 USAW High School National Recruiting Showcase.
The Dick Glover Virginia Wrestling Scholarship Fund was established in 2015 for the purpose of supporting academic and athletic pursuits of young wrestlers. This will be done through post-secondary educational scholarships for qualifying graduates of public or private high Schools in Virginia, attending an accredited 2-year or 4-year community college, college or university in the United States.
Social injustice is wrong and contrary to the inclusive nature of wrestling. USA Wrestling’s mission is to provide quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full athletic and human potential. Recent tragedies in our nation compel us to do more and do it better. We stand with our African American and black communities and all of the diverse people who are part of our sport. We will focus our actions on how we can drive change against unjust treatment, police brutality, and systematic racism that is plaguing our nation and world. We need to come together now and use our voice, platform, and actions to help create the kind of society that reflects our values. By its nature, wrestling can be the most inclusive sport on earth. Anyone can wrestle and everyone is welcome. When we hit the mat, we are all part of one wrestling family.
