NC AAU Wrestling is part of the larger National AAU Association. You can find out additional information about AAU by selecting the “Join AAU” tab on the website. Wrestling is a unique sport compared to most sports. The majority of NC AAU Wrestling events are Open Events. This means you do not have to be a member of a team or club as in most sports. To participate in a sanctioned NC AAU Wrestling Event (as well as National Events) all you need is to have a current AAU card (purchased on-line from the National website) and pre-register (including paying entry fee) for the event. NOTE: Purchasing an AAU card makes you eligible to participate in any AAU Sanctioned Sport. A separate card is not required for each sport.
Participants in wrestling are typically broken down into two-year age divisions or grade divisions and by actual weight. Modified National High School Federation rules are followed.

Go to www.trackwrestling.com to register for all tournaments. Follow the instructions of entering your wrestler information and entering desired tournament.
The equipment/uniform for wrestling consists of headgear to protect the ears, a singlet, and wrestling shoes. (If you have braces or orthodontic devices a mouth piece is also required.)
Organizing a sanctioned AAU Wrestling Club provides benefits of insurance coverage (at a small cost) as well as opportunity to provide organized practice with training partners. Clubs are organized at the local level.
Volunteers are key to providing fun and safe youth sports so please feel free to get involved. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
