2021 Fargo National Team Qualifying Information
Athletes (changing weight classes for National Events after qualification is up to the discretion of the Board)
Travel: Wrestlers will be required to obtain their air transportation. Parents will then have the opportunity to select the airport that is best for them. Travel must be booked according to the wrestler’s age group and whether they are Women’s Cadet, Junior or both, Men’s Junior or Cadet wrestling Freestyle, Greco or both. Parents are welcome to attend and stay in the hotel with their wrestler.
Housing: VAWA has a block of rooms at the Days Inn FargoDome for our team. Due to COVID, Safe Sport and other issues, parents will need to contact the hotel, book and pay for the room for the required days of participation. Parents can then determine who they want their wrestler to stay with. If there are 2 people in a room it cuts the cost in half. If several parents want to agree on more than 2 in a room (to further reduce hotel costs) they can. It is the responsibility of the parents/wrestlers to make room-mate decisions. Parents are also welcomed to attend and stay at the hotel with wrestlers. If the hotel books up, then parents will have to find other housing in Fargo. Regardless of where a wrestler stays he must attend all meetings and training sessions on time. VAWA coaching will be supervising team members at the Days Inn FargoDome.
COVID: Covid has created a multiple of roadblocks and issues for us all. USAW will have guidelines at Fargo for wrestlers and staff to follow. We will provide them when they are determined by USAW. Should any wrestler become tested for COVID while in Fargo, a parent will be required to come to the event and quarantine with them. It will not be the responsibility of VAWA to leave behind coaches to quarantine with wrestlers.
