High School Folkstyle National Teams for Heartland National Duals and Virginia Beach

Heartland USA High School National Folk Style Duals 2024

March 28th, 29th, and 30th
Mid America Center, Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Address: 1 Arena Way, Council Bluffs, IA 51501.

This is a USA event and you must have a USA wrestling card

The cost for this event is $185 per wrestler and includes singlet, shorts, shirt, crew sweat shirt and entry fee.


This will be Folkstyle only on Saturday and Sunday.

NEUSAW has created a HS division at the Heartland National duals in Council Bluffs, IA.   We are taking 2 boys and 2 girls teams to this event.  Top 2 places at our NEUSAW State Tournament in Grand Island will qualify for these national teams. 

Exception: The USA Wrestling High School folkstyle Nationals is on the same weekend as the NEUSAW State tournament this year.  Because of that, if a wrestler goes to the Folkstyle Nationals and places top 8 (All American), that wrestler will have the option to challenge either the 1st or 2nd place wrestler from the State tournament.  Any All-American(s) from the 2024 USAW folkstyle nationals,  who wish to challenge for a spot on the HND or VB teams may only challenge for 1 spot, and must be at the same weight class, plus three pounds, they wrestled at during the USAW Folkstyle nationals.  It will be up to the All American(s) to contact Matt Paeth or Fred Franklin to make their challenge known by March 19th.  This is the final due date for challenges.  Once that challenge is confirmed a wrestle off for that spot will be coordinated.  If the All American(s) challenges for the 1st team and wins then the previous wrestler that had the first team then moves down to the 2nd team.  The All American(s) only get a total of 1 challenge.  

Heartland National Duals will be on March 28th, 29th, and 30th. The cost for this event will be $185 and includes a singlet, shorts, shirt, hoodie and entry fee.

The same kids that qualify for Heartland will also be on our HS National team we are taking to the NHSCA Virginia Beach National duals May 25th-27th.  This is a Folkstyle tournament only.  No Freestyle.
