Women's Wrestling Recruitment Video

USA Wrestling designed the video to the right to promote women’s wrestling to all potential athletes, parents and coaches. Please share this video with all your contacts; you never know who this may impact.

"Terry Steiner, the national women's coach at USA Wrestling in Colorado Springs points out the fact that...Why limit this great sport [wrestling] to only half of the world's population; so you've got a great sport why not share that why do only men get to benefit from the self-improvement and the confidence building and the athleticism that wrestling brings." - Jason Bryant, Editor at Amateur Wrestling News
