IWAY supports development and creation of opportunities to advance the sport of wrestling in Illinois by giving youth wrestlers the opportunity to learn and compete at all levels. Through a united purpose Illinois wrestlers will be able to compete at the highest levels nationally. IWAY’s mission includes the development of sportsmanship and character through discipline, work ethic, and respect for all of life’s challenges.

IWAY is a non-profit organization.  IWAY representatives are a group of coaches from the state of Illinois. All of these coaches are in equal partnership with all decision making of this organization. We welcome and encourage more coaches around the state to get involved and become IWAY representatives. We have assembled qualifiers from each state’s championship tournament to advance to the NUWAY National Championships in Battle Creek, MI. Last year we had 7 states. This year it has grown to 18 States: AZWAY (AZ), SCWAY (CA), IDAWAY (ID), IWAY (IL), HYWAY (IN), GNWA (GA), MDWAY (MD), MYWAY (MI), NCWAY (NC), NJWAY (NJ), NYWA (MN), NYWAY (NY), OURWAY (OH), ORWAY (OR), PJW (PA), SCWA (SC), WYWA (WA), WVWAY (WV).
