Welcome to web site for the New England Independent School Wrestling Association (NEISWA).  NEISWA consists of four leagues: the Class As, the Western New England Independent School Wrestling Association (WNEISWA or Westerns), the Independent School League (ISL or Graves-Kelsey), and the Eastern Independent School League (EIL).

On this site, you will find information about each league. We will list results from past league tournaments as well as past New England Tournaments. We will also provide information about the upcoming/current season as it becomes available such as the location and dates of the tournaments. We also have records of how wrestlers from NEISWA have done at the National Prep Tournament.

Bill Barron (Hyde-ME) and Ethan Shapiro (Exeter) compiled many of the past records, and we are indebted to them for their work. Ethan suggested the idea of a website, and Al Reiff and Taft hosted the original site. We at Artefact are happy to currently host.

2014 New England Prep Wrestling Tournament  – 2/14-2/15

This will be a paperless tournament, run entirely in digital/electronic format, and this will eliminate the need for paper bout sheets.  Most importantly, parents, off site individuals, and wrestling fans everywhere will be able to follow the action in real time at trackwrestling.com for every bout in the tournament.  Coaches will be able to see upcoming matches on mobile phones as well, for their convenience.

Follow the tournament online here.
