USA Wrestling Card How-To

USA Wrestling is one of two the umbrella organizations that provide the club’s insurance for both wrestlers as well as the facilities. Although wrestling is a surprisingly safe sport compared to many other youth activities, without USA Wrestling insurance coverage, it would be very difficult to find a facility that would allow the club to practice on their property due to liability concerns. USA Wrestling will also require registration for participation in its tournaments. Therefore, all wrestlers must register with USA Wrestling. A Limited Folkstyle USA Wrestling card currently costs $15. Here is how to register:
