This is an amazing experience. Wrestling outside on the football field under the stadium lights. Willow Canyon football field is ARTIFICIAL TURF. This is a very important for the fact we will not have moisture transferring from the organic grass onto the wrestling mats making them slippery. Safety is a priority with MWP.  Please register as soon as possible. In the last 2 years, we sold out.

Thank you for competing with MWP and for all your suggestions. This is going to be an extremely competitive tournament bringing in athletes from all over the Southwest. We are listening to our wrestling community!
