As the calendar turns to October, it’s time to look at the new season of amateur wrestling, from the nation’s top high school events … to the college championships, including a return to St. Louis for the NCAAs … and eventually the 2015 World Championships, which return to the United States for the first time since 2003 when Las Vegas plays host to the top men’s and women’s freestylers and Greco-Roman wrestlers in the country next September.

With that in mind, here is a chronological listing of the nation’s events. Mark your calendars and plan on attending as many of these events as possible to support wrestling.
