NM Wrestling USA

New Mexico Junior Wrestling Family,

In light of our Governor’s press conference, the New Mexico Junior Wrestling 2020/2021 Wrestling Season will be postponed until March 2021 due to the growing concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are extremely disappointed that we could not kick off our season in November, but our priority is the health and safety of both our youth and members of our community. 

Even though our season has been delayed we look forward to March and plan to have tough competition which will include both youth and possibly high school wrestlers.

As always, please feel free to reach out to us anytime. We plan on remaining extremely active within our community and on social media. Please continue to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for any up to date information from New Mexico Junior Wrestling!

We look forward to seeing you all again. Stay healthy and safe!

Thank You,
