 Interest has been growing steadily in women’s wrestling in Indiana over the past several years with this year being no exception.  We are making important improvements to our women’s events, opportunities, and overall outlook to allow for more young women to enter the sport.  Once we get them involved in the sport at a young age, the most important item is to keep them involved and competing in wrestling throughout high school and into college.

Our ISWA Women’s State Tournaments have both been streamlined in reducing the number of age groups and weight classes to allow for more competitive tournaments.  Team competition is an area that will continue to expand in the years to come.  Having a group of women wrestlers in a club or team will contribute to them wanting to stay involved and competing throughout high school. 

 Getting the word out for women’s wrestling and the importance of attending all of our Indiana events and national team events is an ongoing effort.  We continue to have really strong women wrestlers coming up through the age groups and our current Indiana representatives are making a name for themselves in Junior and Senior Level events, both nationally and internationally.

 We will continue to do everything we can to assist any women wrestler to reach her goal.  It is very hard work to compete with boys throughout the year, but the payoff is when you get to compete against other women at the state, national, and international levels.
