Offseason Tournaments
I used to go to forcewrestling for off season folkstyle schedules, but they said they won't really be covering that so much anymore. Anybody have some good places to look? We like to stay busy!

Címon, nobody at 142 views?

Sterling and Harvard are 3/17
Plainfield East will have a takedown tourney in april
Nationals is easily found.

292 views and nobody knows of some offseason tournaments in IL? Doing a lot of grassroots research and found two more. Will post my findings when someone else hooks up some info.

Freestyle and Greco tournaments can be found at ILUSAW.COM/Events.
Not up yet for this season.

Thanks! Likely sticking to folkstyle, but could be fun!

The guys over at Force used to maintain a great list each year of the off-season tournaments around the state (<--now defunct. It looks like they have redesigned their site and the former link is no longer valid. But, I imagine they'll be putting out a list here towards the end of the year. Might be worthwhile to reach out to them.

Thanks! I did reach out to the folks at forcewrestling and they said they don't plan on really doing much for offseason this year. Hopefully they change their mind. But it would be great if people could post any events they know about here or on the Tournament forum somewhere.

Are you looking for specifically local events? Or just ANYTHING going on between now(ish) and the start of next years preseason?

I live in Bolingbrook and usually will do anything folkstyle within about two-2.5 hrs away so pretty much all IL leads are great. And yeah, pretty much from 3/24 up to Nationals in July.

Last year, several off and preseason events got cancelled due to low numbers. Force offseason site usually lists all offseason events for f/s, greco, and folkstyle. Hopefully they put it up this yr. For offseason folkstyle tournaments, likely have to travel to IN, MI, IA, or WI. Hopefully IL gets more offseason events going this year. If I remember correctly, further south runs few folkstyle tourneys- Mt Zion, heyworth, etc etc.
