Overview of the entire winter season November thru February:
Once wrestlers are registered with their clubs, they are expected to also register with NVWF, sign the appropriate waivers, and pay all funds to their club managers. Individual clubs generally assign wrestlers to a practice group based on age, weight, and skill level. Adjustments are often made upon coach evaluations of skill level, availability of partners at high and low weights, and wrestler attitude or mental capacity. Boys and girls are integrated with all groups.
The winter season 2016-17 NVVW tournament schedule:
First NVWF tournament is mid-December.
All other NVWF tournaments are Sundays select Saturdays in January and February in accordance with club votes at the spring, summer, and fall meetings.
Due to the volume of registrants, there are two venues upon which clubs are assigned each week to compete. Younger wrestlers start in the morning whereas the older wrestlers compete in the afternoons.
