Girls placing Top 3 in Cadets and/or Juniors on May 6th, 2018 qualifies them to wrestle for Team New York at the FARGO Women's Nationals this July.  This trip requires a lot of planning so parents of qualifying wrestlers who wish to attend should be prepared to submit a $250 deposit no later than May 11th.  The deposit is a clear indication of a family’s commitment and ability to make this trip.  NY-USA Women's wrestling will be awarding stipends to NY's top 30 Wrestlers based on point system that uses prior Freestyle tournament results (Fargo, World Team Trials/Body Bar, and Local NY Freestyle Tournaments). 

Fargo Teams


There will be two levels of qualifying due to travel limitations as a group.  For this year the Women's team will be divided into Tier 1 and Tier 2 (if necessary).  Tier 1 will be the top place finishers starting with the Champs and working our way down through the place finishers based on State Placement, then point system based on former placement in Fargo, Body Bar, Shogun, Mohawk Valley, Gotham, & Headlocks.  All top 3 at the states qualify and if they don't make Tier 1 they can still compete in Fargo and be part of our team.  There will be a $450 discount for Tier 2 wrestlers to assist in their own travel. 


Our training Staff wants all our qualifiers to attend and travel as a team together.  However, this year that is just not possible due to logistical limitations.  Girls who do not make the top 20 can still go to Fargo and train with the state team and compete!  But all girls after the top 40 will have to take care of their own travel.  

Tier 1 - Travels with top 40 wrestlers and coaching staff. Includes National Training Camp, Gear Package, Competition fees, Airfare, & Room & Board.

Tier 2 - Includes National Training Camp, Gear Package, Competition fees, & Room & Board. Responsible for your own travel arrangement to North Dakota State University.  Everything else is the same as Tier 1.  Tier 2 is only if we get 40 deposits from our top 40 and NY has an overflow of girls who want to attend.  


Fargo costs:

Fargo is an amazing experience to bring your daughter to the next level.  We have an amazing coaching staff, including All-Americans and successful coaches, who are dedicated to seeing that your daughter gets to the next level.  The camp cost fluctuates depending on the wrestler and how far they've gone in the past.  We determine the stipend/scholarship based on a point system of Freestyle accolades. 

Example: The top 5 girls based on point system may pay $1000, where new girls may have to pay full price at $1600.  The State tries to supply some reward to every girl, but there are heavy costs involved including paying for our coaches staff to travel.  Many girls fund raise through May and June to make trip possible.  

This Wednesday the women’s board will meet to go over which girls will receive a stipend for how much.  


Stipends and Points System

Stipends are a form of scholarship picked up by the state to our top 29 wrestlers to reward them for representing Team New York and placing high at a national level.  This is based on a point system and selection process the Female state board discusses.  There will be opportunity to submit your accolades and challenges later this week.  Stipends will not be determined until May 16th, after World Team Trials, May 11-13th, 2018, for some girls traveling there will still attempt to accumulate points.
