**VERY IMPORTANT - new Registration process for all Regular Season Tournaments starting with Kenai River Rumble on March 10-11. Tournaments will still be run in TrackWrestling, but Registration is no longer completed by your Club in Track pre-registration for you.
ALL Registrations will now be done through the USAW Membership System. This is the same as was done for the 2022 AUSAW State Tournament. The only 2 differences from State is that 1) you will not pick your weight class since all Regular Season Tourneys are still Madison Bracketed and 2) Clubs eligible to hold Satellite weigh-ins on Thursdays before each event will still be doing so*. There will still be on-site registration and weigh-ins available. The only change is that all payments will now be made to AUSAW for all events.
*Club Directors- you will be emailed separately concerning instructions on Satellite weigh-in procedures. If you have not received an email on that by tomorrow, March 2nd, please reach out to AlaskaUSAW@gmail.com to ask for the information.
You must have a current USAW Athlete Membership to register and you must be associated to your club to be able to do a Satellite weigh-in there. See your Club Director for assistance if you do not know how to associate your Club to your Athlete's Membership profile. You must do this yourself as your Club cannot do this for you, but they can help you.
Check with your Club to make sure your Club will not be doing this new Registration for you. They probably aren't, but check to make sure before proceeding.
To Register, follow this link: https://www.usawmembership.com/usaw_events_registrations/participant and log into your USAW account. At the top of page Search for Alaska Events. Click on Register to the left of the appropriate Event (first being Kenai River Rumble) then follow the instructions to register. Girls who want to double enter into boys can do so by clicking save and add more wrestlers to go back and also register for boys adding it to your cart. NOTE: you are not registered until payment is complete and your cart is cleared.
Those who want to Double Enter up a Division still must notify your Club. It will still be entered manually and you'll need to pay AUSAW on-site for this. This type of Double Entry can't be completed in the USAW Membership system.
Please email AlaskaUSAW@gmail.com if you have any questions.
