    Do colleges recognize girl wrestlers?

    With women's college wrestling going NAIA next year, we look for more and more colleges to add women's wrestling. The last several years, it has been 1-2 per year adding, but it is more at the 2-3 per year rate. Events are starting to happen at the college level during the same weekends, which means there are plenty of teams to fill the multiple events. This is what I tell and 'preach' over and over to everyone that asks or has a a women involved in wrestling. I tell them that they need to get out there and wrestle as many women events as they can find. Getting the video together and contacting the coaches is great, but all of the coaches want to see them wrestling the big events!! They have no way to gauge them by watching them wrestler against boys, especially in weights above 113. Of course, those that are getting noticed by colleges are the HS age women wrestlers. The need to go to women's events in their state, Folkstyle nationals in OKC, FILA Nationals in Florida, and Cadet/Junior Nationals at Fargo. College women wrestling is Freestyle, so coaches want to see them wrestle Freestyle and Folkstyle. They want to see a long list of events on their resume. Placing at every event is not crucial, it is the time, effort, and drive to want to compete in all of these events that will set them apart and get them notice by college coaches. I am working with our most local college women's teams, Cumberlands and Campbellsville, to be here for the ISWA state events in 2014. You will get a one on one chance to talk to the women's coaches there in your home state. A new program is starting at Eastern Michigan University next year and that college coach is coming down to the War of the Roses women's tournament at East Central in March. Any questions, please ask. Darren Strub ISWA Women's Wrestling Director 513-375-4903

    College commitment

    Great!! The more programs the better for every women wrestler, especially when they are getting closer and closer to Indiana. Hope to get an IN college interested in starting a women's program in the next couple years!! Hope to have Makayla wrestle in as many women's events as possible this year. The OKC will have her wrestling side by side with the college women next March. Darren Strub, IN Women's Director

  6. Get in contact with me at iswawmnsdirector@aol.com and we will search for a local club where your daughter can start wrestling.
  7. The best thing to do is to start wrestling in Women's event whenever and wherever you can find them. I would particularly make a strong effort to attend every national women's tournament from MS through HS. By being there, improving, getting your name out there, all will get colleges to start looking at your women wrestlers for scholarships. Colleges want women that have shown a pattern of attending all of the events. You do not have to be the best to get recognized, they are looking for really good students, wrestlers that will work hard, and wrestlers that will fit in their program and most importantly stay in their program. The money and time you spend will be rewarded by a good scholarship at a quality private university or college. You can contact me anytime for information or questions @ iswawmnsdirector@aol.com or 513-375-4903 Have them start now by attending the Women's Tourney at St. Leon, IN (East Central HS) on March 3rd!! Contact me or look here on Indianamat.com or on Facebook at Team Indiana Girls Wrestling. We are taking a group to OKC late next month and will have HS and MS women wrestlers going. I will getting out information in the next few days about all the upcoming womens events!!
  8. Treat them as any other wrestler. They will need hair covers. The ones that go over their hair and under the headgear tend to come off really easily. The ones that go over the headgear and attach through the straps stay on much better. Under Armor type shirts are good for under singlets, the high cut sleeve are the best type. They should have goals to wrestle against other women in women's only tournaments. There are two ISWA women's state tourneys (2/3, 5/5) and another Open women's only tourney at East Central on 3/3. I would suggest having them go to the 2/3 tourney and get information and an education for women's wrestling. As far as weigh-ins, they need to have a women trainer or parent weigh them in usually after all of the boys go, but sometimes beforehand. Let me know if you have anymore questions and you, them, or their parents can contact me at iswawmnsdirector@aol.com
