Welcome to the OAWA on-line Registration System

The Ontario Amateur Wrestling Association uses an online membership registration process where members can join or renew membership with the OAWA over the internet.

Important Changes for 2019

At the 2018 Ontario Amateur Wrestling Association AGM, new minimum standards were set for being a recognized Ontario Wrestling Club. Clubs and parents are invited to familiarize themselves with these standards by visiting:


Beginning immediately, all coaches coaching with the club must be OAWA member coaches, including having submitted a Police Background Check. Clubs with non-member coaches or coaches who have not submitted their Background Checks will not be covered by the OAWA’s insurance. Contact OAWA (admin@oawa.ca) for details.

Membership Fees

A participant who registers early for 2019 (next membership year) competes for the balance of the current year under the age group for 2018. For example, an athlete registering early as a first year Cadet for the 2019 membership year continues to compete as a Bantam for the balance of 2018.
