2020/2021 Season Update

Our board has been meeting regularly (via video of course) to plan for this year’s 2020/2021 season.

We have been closely following the guidelines and per the below message received from IKWF.  Our season will not be starting in January as we originally had hoped.  We will continue to keep everyone inform on our season updates as soon as we have more information. 


NEW IKWF UPDATE 11/15/2020

The IKWF Board of Directors met on Sunday, November 15, 2020 to discuss options for the 2020-21 season. Due to the continued conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors have revised their plan for the 2020-21 season to the following:

The IKWF will continue to follow the guidance and guidelines provided by the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

Currently, wrestling remains in Level 1 of the IDPH All Sports Policy which allows for NON-CONTACT practice and training. All clubs, coaches, wrestlers, and officials should adhere to the IDPH All Sports Policy.


Under the current guidelines, there will be NO USA Wrestling sanctioned events during the 2020-21 IKWF season unless the CDC and IDPH guidelines and policies change to allow such competitions.


The IKWF Board of Directors voted on the following changes to the 2020-21 season:

– Changed the proposed practice start date to April 5, 2021.

– If allowed by the CDC and IDPH policies and guidelines, IKWF Regionals will be held.
