State’s Continuing to Sanction Girls’ Wrestling on the Rise

GIRLS WRESTLING PROGRAMS ON THE RISE

The number of girls wrestling programs with sanctioned state championships in the US stands at 18 states, 6 of them coming in each 2018 and 2019 respectively. Girl’s wrestling has continued to grow at the local and national level over the past decade.

USA Wrestling’s Girls High School Development Committee, led by Joan Fulp of California and Andrea Yamamoto of Washington, has been working closely with wrestling leaders across the nation, supporting their efforts in getting state recognition for girls wrestling. They also work with other organizations such as Wrestle Like Girl, Inc., the National Wrestling Coaches Association, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and others to help expand opportunity for girls to wrestle.
