The tournament has 12 (up to 16) teams in the National College, 16 in the National High School, American High School and Black & Blue High School Divisions. There are 8 teams in the American College Division. A tournament representative will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss your team's inclusion in future Virginia Duals events.
NOTE: This is a FRIDAY-SATURDAY event. So please keep this in mind when applying for the tournament. If you are unable to compete on Fridays or are unable to miss school to travel to a competition, please do not apply. We cannot have teams commit, then back out because they weren't aware of how the event is scheduled.
Please note you are guaranteed at least THREE duals. Teams who win a division will move up to the next division for the following year.
American CollegeNon-Division I
National High SchoolCompetitive teams from across the country. Nationally-ranked or highly ranked within your state. Some teams with a handful of talented individuals like to compete in this division even if your team could be better suited for a lower division because of the opportunity to wrestle higher level wrestlers infront of college wrestling coaches. This division is scheduled next to the National College Division.
American High SchoolGeared more for balanced teams who are on the cusp of being nationally competitive. It's rare a nationally-ranked high school team competes in this division, but it has happened.
Black & Blue High SchoolUsually reserved for local teams and Virginia schools who want to compete in the event and might have a few wrestlers likely to place at the state tournament. It's atypical for out-of-state teams to compete in this division. Highly rated out of state teams will not be considered for this division.
