Beards- Hyway and ISWA

Recommended Posts

Facial hair has been permitted at Fr-Soph State and at the ISWA Folkstyke state tournament. That said, I think it depends on the beard. If it is deamed abrasive, your wrestler may be asked to shave. I’d say a little stubble would be permissible—but if the wrestler has the ability to grow beard of a 30 hipster, he’d better keep it trim.

I’d suggest looking into the USA Wrestling rules about it, but last I heard there no rule against facial hair.

They allowed beards at ISWA State last weekend. I believe stubble is frowned upon though.

I had 2 wrestlers with beards at ISWA State. They were told as long as it was not abrasive it was fine.

 It is there a certain person making the determination of what is abrasive and what is acceptable? Or is it a ref determining it on the mat?
