Clarifications for Requirements of athletes working as mat officials.

After discussing these matters on Sunday evening with the WAWA board, here are some clarifications on the requirements for athletes working as mat officials at Kids State this year.

Any 12 through 17 year old athletes can officiate the Kids State tournament as long and the requirements are met. If there are questions as to the requirements to officiate, contact WAWA Mat Director, Dennis Thorson,

For this year only, WAWA will purchase a USAW wrestling leader mat official card if the athlete has been approved to officiate at Kid State by the WAWA Mat Officials director, Dennis Thorson.

For clubs who have already purchased the wrestling leader card for athletes working Kids State as a mat official this year, the club will be reimbursed this cost by WAWA only if the athlete has been approved and officiates at Kids State.

All clubs sending athlete mat officials who do not now have a current USAW wrestling leader mat officials card should immediately forward a list of names, contact information, and qualifications in order to officiate at Kids State to WAWA Mat Officials Director, Dennis Thorson. 

All mat officials currently holding a wrestling leader card and are officiating at Kids State MUST register under their USAW profile, under USWOA Events to receive printed credentials for Kids State. 

If you need assistance in registering your officials please contact WAWA Registration Director, Vickie Tolin.

Congratulations to Tristan Carpenter! 


The winner of WAWA's first annual fundraiser hunt is Tristan Carpenter of Casper, Wyoming.  She won the bull Bison Hunt along with $750 towards processing and $750 towards taxidermy.

This year's fundraiser was a tremendous success. Bringing in over 15k dollars, earmarked for 3-4 camps around the state to promote the further training of our youth athletes.

Thank you all who supported this cause. The majority of the funds were raised in state with our winner being a Casper resident. Seeing the support from within the community is extremely fulfilling and inspiring to realize how Wyoming strong we are.  Look out for future opportunities to help our sport and youth.

Thank you for your support!
