HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THE WEEKEND AS A PARTICIPANT

Sign up for one or sign up for all. The unique feature of this event is the format. The competition schedule was created to provide opportunities to compete in multiple styles of wrestling in one weekend against the best competition from around the country.

Everyone is welcome to join the freestyle and greco dual meet tournament. All wrestlers who sign up without a team will be entered in to a draft and placed on a team. 

Yes, there is no limit to the amount you can wrestle at the Spartan Nationals. Wrestle one style or wrestle every style - Beach, Greco, Freestyle and Folkstyle.

The Southeast Regional is a long standing USA Wrestling Freestyle and Greco tournament. This year USA Wrestling and Spartan Combat are partnering up to offer more competition options for the weekend. This is the only Regional Championship that offers Folkstyle and Freestyle/Greco Duals. 

Top 4 placewinners at the Southeast Regional Championship automatically qualify for the Cadet or Junior National Championship.

Champions of each region are separated in the bracket of the Cadet and Junior National Championship.

Due to NCAA recruiting rules during Covid it is unknown if college coaches are allowed to recruit in person. For this reason we were able to secure the Spartan National Championship to air live on Flowrestling so college coaches from around the country can tune in.
