War at the Shore Folkstyle Nationals - SHORE WAR!!

AS OF FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020

THE WAR IS ON - NEW DATES!!

The 16th Annual War at the South Jersey Shore Folkstyle Nationals wrestling tournament has been RESCHEDULED to April 25 & 26, 2020 (Saturday & Sunday this year), and it will be continuing with separate GIRLS DIVISION & ADULTS DIVISIONS!  The Girls Folkstyle tournament is also scheduled to be a 2-day event.The Men's Folkstyle tournament will be held on Sunday, April 26, with a starting time of 10:00 AM.‚Äč

In 2019 just under 2000 of the finest wrestlers in the country made their way to the beach in Wildwood, NJ. The 2020 tournament will once again be held in the fabulous Oceanfront Arena at the Wildwoods Convention Center in Wildwood, NJ. The morning sessions of the Boys War (girls may enter as well) feature Tot, Bantam, Midget and Junior age groups and will kick off at 8:00 AM both days. The afternoon sessions feature the Intermediate and High School age groups and will kick off at 1:00 PM both days.

RETURNING IN 2020 any wrestler who is eliminated in the double-elimination Co-Ed War (boys and girls) can sign-up at the arena before leaving on Saturday to wrestle two more matches on Sunday. Four man brackets will be set up for wrestlers who want to participate, but YOU MUST SIGN-UP ON SATURDAY BEFORE LEAVING YOUR SESSION.

All attempts will be made to keep wrestlers in division and in the weight class wrestled at the war. In cases where this is not the case Tournament organizers will use their best judgement. Wrestlers can always withdraw from the second chance tournament if division and reasonable weight conditions can not be met. 

RETURNING IN 2020, GIRLS WAR!! The separate Girls War is planned to be a 2-day tournament. ALL Girls Divisions will wrestle in the morning sessions that begin at 8:00 AM. We will work with competitors to provide appropriate rest time (as determined by Tournament Directors and/or referees) between matches for Girls who are wrestling in BOTH the Boys War (girls eligible to enter) and the girls-only War. Keep in mind that anyone who is eliminated on Saturday from the Co-Ed War can sign-up to pick up two more matches on Sunday by wrestling in 4-man brackets on Day 2. That way, girls who wrestle in both the Co-Ed war and the Girls War can possibly wrestle in a minimum of 6 matches.

RETURNING IN 2020, ADULT'S WAR The separate Adults War will be held on Sunday, March 26, with a start time of 10:00 AM.

This year's tournament once again features FloArena tournament software, which allows the online wrestling public, as well as attendees at the arena, to follow all of the results REAL TIME ONLINE. People who can't make it to the tournament will be able to view live streaming from EVERY MAT on the Internet this year!
