Note - these are only the major events, every single MYWAY event throughout the season also counts towards the Fab 50.  Click here for the full MYWAY schedule.



5 Wrestlers of the Year will be awarded, one for each age group.  The wrestler of the year will be the eligible wrestler in each age group who scores the most points, and will be awarded a custom MIG Youth Wrestler of The Year Trophy.  They will also be featured on the MIG Fab 50 poster.


The MIG Youth Fab 50 will consist of the top 10 point scorers from each of the 5 age categories at the end of the season.  These 50 wrestlers will receive custom MIG Fab 50 gear and will all be listed on the MIG Fab 50 Poster.


Age divisions are based on your birth year, the same way MYWAY Age Divisions are determined.  The age divisions are as follows:

  • 5-6 Year Old 
  • 7-8 Year Old 
  • 9-10 Year Old 
  • 11-12 Year Old 
  • 13-14 Year Old 


  • Wrestlers in grades 8 and below are eligible.  High School wrestlers are NOT eligible for The Fab 50.  Grade is based on 2017-18 school year.
  • Only Michigan residents are eligible
  • Points can be earned by wrestler’s placing in any of the Fab 50 credited events listed on the schedule
  • Only one placing can be used from a single event (for example if someone competes in 2 age groups or weight classes at a tournament and places in both, only one placing can count towards Fab 50.)
  • To be included - Wrestler/Parent/Coach must submit a Fab 50 Entry Form.  Person submitting the Entry Form must be a Grappler Gold Annual Member, only one Fab 50 entry per Gold membership.
    * If you have multiple children/siblings contact for instructions.
  • Standings will be tabulated for all those eligible wrestlers (who have been properly registered for the Fab 50), every month throughout the season.  The final standings will be tabulated at the end of July to determine the final awards.  Wrestlers may be registered late, or mid-season and we will go back and tabulate their past results.
  • Placing in "novice" or "rookie" divisions of tournaments will not count towards the Fab 50
