LICENSE PLATE MONEY TO PAY ENTRY FEES
The Washington State Wrestling Foundation (WSWF) board of directors has allocated the funds necessary to pay the individual 2023 National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NCWA) Conference and Nationals entry fees for all State of Washington college wrestling teams.
The NCWA allows each college team multiple weight class entries at the conference championships but only two per weight are allowed to qualify for Nationals.
During the 2021-22 season, the top five men in each weight qualified to Nationals. All women who compete at the Northwest Conference tournament automatically qualify for Nationals. The 2023 men’s and women’s NCWA National Tournament will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Mar 9-11.
The entry fees are $50 for each event. The WSWF expects to pay out about $10,000.
The license plate revenue from 2022 was $7,677. There are additional funds available from previous years which allows us to pay the overage. The WSWF’s only stipulation is that the head coach and/or a club officer of each program have a license plate on one of their own vehicles.
Currently, there are 253 wrestling plates registered in WA. We obviously need more plates out on the road. This will allow us to help our college programs even more, plus advertise our sport of wrestling.
Thank you to everyone that has a plate which allows us to support our teams.
