Anticipated Age Groups
Another way to look at the age divisions and their respective spread in terms of months or birth dates is as follows:
Capital Area Wrestling League (CAWL) wrestlers are eligible to wrestle in the NVWF if they did not place sixth (6th) or better in the previous years CAWL End of Season Tournament. Also, if a CAWL wrestler participates in a CAWL meet and wrestles for points, they cannot wrestle in the NVWF tournament in the same weekend.
