Registration

Before you register for the 2023 Youth/Girls New Englands, carefully read the rules and requirements for registration, weigh-in, and competition that are described at YNEW.org. By clicking on the link below, you agree that you have read and agree to the terms outlined on this page. All online registrations must be completed by the deadline. You cannot change your weight class or make payment after the registration deadline has passed. Online registration closes on Monday March 6, 2023.

The Youth/Girls New Englands registration fee is $65. Placement at state tournaments will be used to seed wrestlers according to the following allotments: CT/MA – top 6 state placers; NH/RI – top 5 state placers; ME/VT top 4 state placers. In order to secure a wild card spot, you must select ‘DNP’ on the registration form. If you are able to complete the registration process, your petition for a wild card is accepted.

When registering for the Youth/Girls New Englands, you are certifying that all your information is accurate and true. First, you must select either the Co-ed or the Girls competition. From there, you will enter your date of birth in the YNEW online registration form. As you enter your date of birth, you will be placed into the correct age group. By selecting your date of birth during online registration, you are certifying your age. All wrestlers must meet age, residency, and weight requirements. Remember that you cannot change weight classes after online registration closes on March 6th (no weight class changes during weigh-ins).

By clicking the “I agree” button, you are agreeing to provide proof-of-age if your age is challenged. Another wrestler or coach may initiate an age challenge by paying a $50 fee. Any wrestler who does not make weight, or misrepresents his age or residency is subject to disqualification. There are no refunds for wrestlers who don’t make weight or misrepresent their age or residency.

Below is a link to the registration form. Please complete all the required fields in the form, including your team affiliations (Town and Club). You can choose the team that you want to display on the YNEW brackets (Display Team). In the CO-ED Competition, town (school) and club team champions will be recognized at the end of the tournament. For the GIRLS Competition, a single team champion will be recognized. Proper entry of your team information is critical to team scoring. Co-Ed wrestlers can score team points for BOTH their town and club teams. Girl wrestlers will score team points according to the group (CO-ED or GIRLS) in which they compete.

After clicking the ‘Submit’ button, you will be directed to a payment page, where you will be able to complete your registration using a PayPal transaction. You will receive separate email notifications that you are registered for the tournament and that you have made payment. Please keep these email notices for proof of registration and payment. Contact the YNEW tournament director if you have any questions about the registration process.
