Cadet/Junior National Team Petitioning (2017)

Yes, you can petition; however there is NO guarantee your petition will be approved.

Each State is allowed a maximum number of qualifiers through State events in each age group and style (Boys only).

Junior - We are allowed 45 qualifiers per style with no more than four (4) in any one (1) weight class.
Cadet - We are allowed 51 qualifiers per style with no more than four (4) in any one (1) weight class.
Note: Regional Qualifiers, UWW Cadet qualifiers, and UWW Junior qualifiers do not count against these totals.

Petitions are considered based upon the following order:

  1. Returning All-Americans.
  2. Returning National Team Members.
  3. All other petition requests received.

After all qualifying (Freestyle and Greco-Roman State Championships, Freestyle and Greco-Roman Second Chance National Team Qualifier, any USA Regional Championship, UWW Cadet National Championships, and UWW Junior National Championships) is complete, open spots are filled by petitioners to our allotted maximums.
