The Shore Conference has released the schedule for the 2021 high school wrestling season and also confirmed it will use the same divisional alignment that was prior to the pandemic restrictions.

Practice for the 2021 season begins on March 1 and the first matches start on March 16. The season runs through April 24.

Teams are allowed a maximum of 15 dual meets as per the NJSIAA’s regulations for this season. Three matches per week are the maximum and there will be no tri or quad meets or tournaments. Postseason events have yet to be determined by the NJSIAA or the Shore Conference.

Each team will wrestle its division opponents once, which is the same in normal seasons. Most teams have been scheduled two divisional matches per week with the exception of the six-team Class B Central division. The week of April 5 will feature only one division match per week. Teams can schedule non-division and non-conference matches provided that fit within the 15-match limit.

The schedule released by the Shore Conference only includes divisional matches and specifies which schools will wrestle during a certain week, but not the date or time. That will be determined by the home school just like a traditional season.

The schedule release was first reported by the Asbury Park Press.

The schedule can be viewed below the division alignment as both an image and a clickable link to a PDF file.
