COVID-19 National Duals Event Update


21st Annual National Duals

May 20, 2020

As we continue to manage through this unprecedented time, we want to relay how incredibly appreciative the NHSCA is with your understanding and patience through this challenging period.   

We were informed by the city of Virginia Beach officials that we must postpone our National Duals event scheduled for this July 4th weekend due to the Governor’s decision concerning conducting large events.

We will be surveying our club coaches and having them assist in determining options identified for conducting the Duals in September, October, or November. In the event your club decides not to attend our rescheduled Duals event, the NHSCA will issue your club a refund after conducting the event and funds are made available.

All consideration will keep the overriding priority and commitment to the safety of our athletes, fans and coaches. We sincerely apologize for the delay. We will provide an update in the next 30 days to determine final decisions.

We hope this update finds you and your family safe and healthy during this global pandemic. The safety of our athletes, coaches, fans and team members remains our top priority. We continue to closely monitor conditions and listen to guidance from national health officials, government agencies and health experts.

Given the information currently available by the federal, state, and local agencies the NHSCA is actively working to reschedule High School Nationals & the National Duals in late June/early July.

To those who have registered for the National Duals, we appreciate your continued patience as we explore options to ensure the best possible solution.

As we all manage through this rapidly evolving situation, we are grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you in at the National Duals.

March 31, 2020

As of March 30, 2020, the Governor of Virginia has issued a stay at home order until June 10, 2020.  Governor Northam’s full executive order can be viewed  here.

To comply with the State of Virginia stay at home order, the NHSCA is working directly with the City of Virginia Beach to identify new event dates for the 2020 National Duals. Full event information will be published when available.

Our staff dedicates much of the calendar year to planning our events in hopes of producing an experience for each athlete in attendance.  Conversely, we realize that amount of time and energy that our wrestlers and coaches dedicate to building a team for this event.

For coaches who have ready registered teams for the event, information has been emailed to you directly and we will continue to keep you updated throughout this process.

In this time of crisis and uncertainty, we wish the NHSCA and wrestling community the best. Stay safe!
