In addition to the High School Team Membership, USA Wrestling has three week-long promotions that will be in effect for the 2017-18 membership seasons, so please see below for a brief description.
Back to the Mat Week
Back to the Mat Week coincides with the first week of the high school wrestling season (November 13-19) for many programs nationwide, so the promotion is aimed at increasing high school participation. National Federation of High Schools data has shown a decrease in high school wrestling for the previous 7 seasons, so the goal is to stop that trend. High school coaches will be armed with tickets to invite kids to join the
high school wrestling team.
Give Wrestling a Shot Week
During the week of January 15-21, USA Wrestling will allow for any non-member of USA Wrestling to participate in chartered club practices as an introductory experience. Club coaches are provided with tickets that are meant to be given to parents of non-wrestlers as a way to invite their child(ren).
Wrestling Week Across America
A repeat week from 2017, Wrestling Week Across America will be March 12-18 as a way to raise the awareness of wrestling nationwide. Each day of the week has a theme that members and clubs are asked to take part in. The week’s highlight is the NCAA Championships Viewing Party on Saturday, March 17th, where clubs are encouraged to host viewing parties for their members.
In addition to the three week-long promotions, USA Wrestling has also implemented a Plus 2 Campaign, where it will be tracking individual memberships per club and recognizing those clubs that grow by at least 2 members from 2016-17. Nationwide, there are over 4,500 chartered clubs with USA Wrestling, so if every club grows by at least 2 members, membership totals will increase by over 9,000 athletes – nearly 5%.
Of all of the 50 states, Wisconsin continues to be the third largest in terms of membership. This is a testament to many coaches and volunteers like you, so thank you for your continued support and commitment.
