Supporting Girls Wrestling in the Nation's Capital

My Students

I coach a competitive and fearless group of 8th grade wrestlers who have been introduced to the sport for the first time this year and are enjoying every second of it.

Despite the many socio-economic barriers my student-athletes face, which are further amplified by the current COVID-19 pandemic, they arrive at school every day eager to learn.

Women's wrestling is one of the fastest-growing sports at the K-12 and college level, and the middle school wrestling team is composed of 90% girls so it has been very exciting for my student-athletes to be a part of such an important movement in the sport of wrestling.

My Project

As a relatively new program, the middle school wrestling team is still in need of some essential wrestling equipment in order for my wrestlers to reach their fullest potential.

The wrestling knee pads, knee sleeves, mouth guards, and headgear included in this project will help my wrestlers test their skills in practice and during competition while minimizing the risk of injury.

I hope with the additional wrestling gear I can also promote girls wrestling even more and be able to recruit more future stars who would consider wrestling at the high school and college level and beyond!
