2017 Rule Changes

In the United States, we will have some slight rule changes for 2017 Season.  These rule changes will be outlined in a document that went to all the State Chairman and to the USWOA Membership.  These rules will only be used in our National Junior age division and down.  These will not apply to any UWW Qualifying event, University or Senior level competitions.  They will continue to use the UWW rules as they are written currently.  Below is a link to a video that outlines the changes in the rules with video examples.  This is good resource that should work well with the document that was emailed out.  


Vision:  High Level Officials Organization

Mission:  USWOA will strive to be a top level organization by providing resources, tools and services that develop high performing mat and pairing officials.

Areas of Focus:  Education, Recruitment and Retention, Evaluations and Upgrades/Downgrades
