Oregon Wrestling Classic

PO BOX 81, Tillamook, OR 97141 Welcome to the 2014, new Oregon Wrestling Classic, one of the nation’s largest wrestling events determined by the number of participants. Last year there were over 3,000 individuals involved in the action of the tournament. The tournament is a greatly entertaining three day event with the largest selection of high schools competing in five seperate tournaments of dual meet competition. The Kids division consists of the place finishers (1st-3rd) from several qualifying tournaments. These five to sixteen year olds are competing to win the championship of their division and weight class.   The Women’s division is an open tournament with close to 100 women competing.  The Oregon Wrestling Classic was established in 1982, when an Oregon City High School Dual Meet Tournament was combined with the Portland State College Tournament and a Kids Division was included. Since then, approximately 31 years later, the all- volunteer “Committee” has worked hard to continue the Oregon Wrestling Classic tradition of promoting amateur wrestling. The 2014 Oregon Wrestling Classic will include approximately 80 high school teams. High school Division wrestling will begin Friday, January 17th, 2014, and conclude on Saturday with the finals at 6:15 PM. Every school will have at least five matches.  It is important to note the purposes and goals of the Oregon Wrestling Classic.

  1. To organize and host an amateur wrestling event of the highest quality
  2. To provide a setting that offers many levels of wrestling, providing a vision to young wrestlers of what is possible in wrestling at all levels
  3. To promote the sport of wrestling in Oregon, and provide recognition to the wrestling community
  4. To use the proceeds from the tournament to provide monetary assistance to many organizations and groups who are connected locally and nationally to the Oregon Wrestling Classic
