Clarification - Bantam and Midget Championships

The IKWF would like to clarify a common misconception permeating throughout the IKWF. The Bantam Championships and the Midget Championships are nothing more than another tournament during the IKWF competition season. The only difference between these tournaments and most other tournaments during the IKWF competition season is they limit participation to the bantam and intermediate age groups respectively. These events:

The Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation, as an organization, retains the right to designate any USA Wrestling event in Illinois as a "State" Tournament.

This means ALL wrestlers who have a USA Wrestling competitor card and participate in IKWF events and activities are bound by the IKWF by-laws. If you are aware of any wrestlers who are not listed on the correct club for any IKWF event, please forward the information to the IKWF office. Thank you.
