The Virginia Challenge Wrestling Board is initiating a “New’ Championship Series of Events culminating in Awards for top wrestlers in all divisions. The divisions will be K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8. Wrestlers competing in the VACW Events will earn points by placing in the top 6. The Outstanding wrestlers in each of these age groups will be determined at the end of the season events. The K-8 end of season event will be the Wrestle Fest and Grades 9-12 will be the Super States March 4th. Wrestlers who place in the final event and have the highest total points for the season earn the awards. We will present Trophies to the top 3 in each Division.

To qualify for any placement points a wrestler must actually wrestle. If you enter a weight class that has no one in it, then it does not qualify for placement points. If your weight class is combined with another weight class and creates a group of 3 or more to get matches, then the combined group is the weight class that can earn placement points in. The minimum wrestlers to earn points is a 3 person group
