Section Qualifiers

Area IX has decided that we will not be offering any Section Qualifiers this year. There will only be Area IX District Championship events.

The reasons for this major change is due to the fact that Area IX has been split into 2 areas this year.  Also, the 13/14 age division has been removed and has formed as the new Jr. High Championship.

Our future plans are to go back to sectional qualifiers in the future as we rebuild Area IX.

Welcome to PA Junior Wrestling, Area IX

Area IX is comprised of the following Counties in South Central PA:

Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Perry, & York.


PA Junior Wrestling is a non-profit organization providing youth wrestlers 14 years of age and younger an opportunity to participate in the sport of wrestling. It is our goal to not only provide a developmental program for our youth but to also contribute to the development of the moral, physical, mental, and emotional attitudes of young people as they develop toward adulthood.


Area IX offers a progressive series of tournaments. Each wrestler has equal opportunity to progress through structured events, starting with competition in the Area IX District Tournament. The District Tournament will provide competition for each wrestler to earn 1 of the top 2 spots to advance to the PJW, State Championship events.  PJW has grown to 2 State Championship Tournament Series.  The first is the Junior High Series.  The second is the Youth Series for wrestlers age 12 and under.


Proceeds from these non-profit events are given back to the hosting programs for the purpose of developing their local wrestling programs.
