Formerly Known as the South Jersey Wrestling Association (SJWA)
The South Jersey Wrestling Association has been bringing elite-level events to NJ and the Mid-Atlantic region for more than 30 years. We are now re-born as the Atlantic Coast Wrestling Association and look forward to delivering world-class events for wrestlers from coast-to-coast! Our National-Level tournaments (National Duals and War at the Shore) typically feature the best teams and wrestlers from up to 30 states located North, South, East and West of the Jersey shore (East? Yes, one year the Slovak National Freestyle Team attended the War!)
