The following are the dates for key national/regional events during this off-season
*For those of you new(er), or needing refresher, on the "Fargo" process - top three finish at a regional event earns you automatic qualification to the corresponding event in Fargo ... Cadet/Junior, Greco/Freestyle. In addition, you do not "count" against the state delegation allotments, and you are not bound to participating in a specific weight class.
--The Northeast and Central regionals are the same weekend this year, third weekend in May (the one before Memorial Day). NE is in Bloomsburg, PA, and the Central is in Grand Rapids, MI.
--Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend will be the Southeast Regional, which will again be in Duluth, GA (just outside of Atlanta)
*Additionally, you have the FILA Junior and Cadet events, which have slightly different age groups that can qualify for Fargo. True Cadets can only qualify at FILA Cadets (though that age group is both years of Cadet and the next year), while Juniors can qualify through FILA Juniors (though that captures the next four years after Cadet eligibility).
--FILA Cadets will be the weekend after the Memorial Day holiday at the University of Akron
--FILA Juniors will be the second full weekend of April (i.e. the weekend before OTT) in Madison, WI
