MYWAY INFO updated 01/01/2017


Michigan Youth Wrestling Association is a state wide wrestling organization with 8 regions. Each region has it's own regional qualifier. The top 4 placers in each weight class and age group at regionals qualifies for the MYWAY state finals. State finals is usually a 32 man bracket of some of the best youth wrestlers in Michigan. In order to attend the Far North Regionals, it is a mandatory state wide requirement to attend at least 2 regular season tournaments prior to regionals. I'm happy to announce that we are scheduling 2 tournaments this season in the Western upper peninsula, Iron Mountain Feb 5th and Escanaba March 5th. MYWAY/NUWAY membership is required before competing in any event. currently, membership fees are $17 per wrestler, per year when joining an existing club. There are currently 6 clubs in the upper peninsula. Iron Mountain, Kingsford, Upper Level Wrestling(Escanaba), Galdstone, Newbery and Sault Ste. Marie. I'd be happy to get you in contact with the club closest to your location or help you establish a new club. There is a lot of great information on the MYWAY website, including the schedule for all 8 regions. If you have any questions about MYWAY wrestling, please don't hesitate to send me an email, shoot me a text or give me a call.
