New Women’s Wrestler FAQ

Why should I join wrestling?

  • Mostly because it’s fun! Most of team continues to wrestle because it’s fun. We go sledding, have a team dinners, dress up for Christmas, have our won photo shoot, play games in practice, travel to overnight meets, and more.
  • You can also find your strength by working through challenges, create new friendships, and develop confidence!

Do women wrestlers have to wrestle boys?

  • No. Women get to wrestle only women in practices and competitions. Women’s wrestling is the fastest growing sport in the country so there are enough competitions for us to not wrestle boys. There is a separate women’s state tournament also that takes place in the Kohl Center along with boy’s tournament.
  • This is the same for our youth and middle school levels. Girls never have to wrestle boys. 

Are wrestlers required to lose weight?

  • No. Yes, there are weight classes, but there are no requirements to lose weight to be at certain weight class.

What are the weight classes?

  • Women’s weight classes (in pounds) are 100, 107, 114, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 165, 185, and 235

Are singlets required?

  • No. A singlet is not required. Other uniforms are available.

Is high school too late to join wrestling?

  • Definitely not! Both of our women’s state place winners in 2023 did not join wrestling until high school. We have about ten  brand new wrestlers join every season. It’s not too late to join and be good at it too!
