Be Prepared

Event Preparation

What to pack in your wrestling bag for meets:

  • Wrestling shoes (never wear your wrestling shoes outside)
  • Extra socks
  • Headgear
  • Mouthguard (required)
  • Warmups (if you’re not wearing them)
  • Uniform (if you’re not wearing it)
  • Water bottle
  • Healthy snacks
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Baby wipes
  • Fingernail clippers

You will have to pay admission for non-wrestlers at each meet.  Admission costs are $2-$3 per person or $5-$8 per family.  Most tournaments will have concessions available; however, you can usually bring your own cooler for a fee.  Once you are inside, your wrestler will need to remove sweatpants and put on wrestling shoes.  Wrestlers will stay with the team and coaches on the floor.  Parents MUST find seats in the stands.  Only coaches with USAW cards will be allowed on the floor with wrestlers.  

Nail & Skin Checks:
Wrestlers will have their fingernails checked for proper length and skin checked for any issues at every meet.  Fingernail clippers in your wrestling bag can be very handy.  

We will warm up together as a team.  Wrestlers are expected to participate during the team warm up.  Horse playing will not be permitted.

Wrestling meets last several hours with wrestlers having up to 5 matches per meet.  Wrestlers should watch and support their teammates throughout the day.
