The Cougar Invitational is a 32 team invitational wrestling tournament that has been hosted every year since
1996. This tournament has become one of the toughest high school events in Florida. We're adding an additional
element this year of the
Cougar Collegiate Duals. For the first time, we'll showcase the finest wrestling that is
currently competing in Florida high school and various Colleges and Universities. It will be an event no wrestling
fan would want to miss. We boasts its own dedicated web site, computer bouting via TrackWrestling, digital
scoreboards, custom individual / team awards and a FANTASTIC new venue, the Florida State Fairgrounds. This
year we welcome
FloWrestling's LIVE coverage, with a membership fans can watch the matches live (see link
above).  Every year we strive to improve on the year before.  We at the Cougar Invitational are committed to
hosting the finest and most competitive wrestling tournament around
