Wrestle Like A Girl is the leading proponent of sanctioning girls high school wrestling nationwide.

A movement is underway seeking to sanction girls high school wrestling here in Wisconsin.

New this year in Wisconsin, during the WIAA high school wrestling season, girls will have the opportunity to wrestle other girls in the new girls divisions being offered at four high school invitationals in the 2017-2018 high school wrestling season. These events are looking forward to great numbers. Talk to your high school coach and encourage him/her to find a way for you to attend one or more of these new events.

WIAA High School season Folkstyle Season Girls Events

Four opportunities for girls vs. girls competition at WIAA high school sanctioned events will be available during the 2017-2018 high school season.

These are WIAA high school sanctioned invitationals each offering a separate girls division as part of the invitational. You must be a member of your high school wrestling team at any level (freshman, junior varsity, varsity).
