Wrestling Gear Ideas for New Wrestlers (and Parents)

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


The first thing I ask when a customer enters our store is what are you looking for and what team do you wrestle for? This gives me an idea generally of what colors to look for and what products to look at. I write about products that a new wrestler might be interested in based on what these people that come into the store like when they are new wrestlers. I'll assume you are looking at Black (and can find the colors that you are looking for). You can do searches for the products and then refine them based on your color choices. As a parent of young children (who are also trying sports I have no idea or experience...

Rulon's Swan Song

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Sounds like the Rulon's will be gone this year. This was sort of expected with the short inventory run (or at least the appearance of a short run with their limited supply). If you want a Rulon wrestling shoe, you better get on this sooner than later. We should have some coming in in January, but I suspect now that they will not be around next year as Rulons (sounds like they will be similar without his name)....start shopping now - http://www.wrestlinggear.com/wrestling-shoes/asics-wrestling-shoes/catalog/

By Jon McGovern In wrestling we learn through physical conditioning to become physically tougher through the sport. You learn to work through pain, muscle soreness, and fatigue. In essence you become a tougher person through the sport of wrestling by never quitting. By definition the word toughness means strong and resilient and able to withstand great strain without tearing or breaking. Wrestlers that endure are tough by definition, so the next step is to turn this physical toughness into mental toughness to optimize one’s potential on and off the mat. Everyone goes through life with adversity and strain. Coping with these life adversities can make the difference between optimizing not only your wrestling performance, but your life. Remember in your...

Planning Practices - Nutrition and Weight Control

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Nutrition, and Weight ControlBy Dan GableBuy Coaching Wrestling Successfully Nutrition and weight control are probably the most controversial subjects in wrestling. Of course, the key issue here is weight loss. The image of a dehydrated wrestler wearing a sweatsuit in a hot gym in order to lose weight is not a healthy one for the sport. What wrestling needs to promote in terms of nutrition and weight is fitness and health. Rules on Weight Control Following the lead of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Federation of State High School Associations has tightened regulations on weight control in wrestling. The NCAA made eight rule revisions after the deaths of three college wrestlers during weight-loss workouts. All state associations are...

Promoting High School Wrestling

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


By Ray Nunamaker Assuming your wrestling program is well established in your school and your community, you’ll be anxious to make the leap to greater recognition, possibly at the national level. Much of what is required for that is some years of consistent, successful results from your teams. This requires tremendous perseverance and dedication. Where do you start? Do What’s Right for the Wrestlers The Wrestling Room. Have a permanent room that is at least large enough for one full mat (42’ x 42’). If you can get more space, take it. Keep the room clean and orderly. Create specific places for jump ropes, time clocks, score flip-cards, announcements, newspaper articles, running shoes, extra clothing, etc. These items should not...
