All wrestlers must have a current USA wrestling card. They are $40 and can be applied for at www.usawmembership.com prior to the start of club practices. Wrestlers competing in Michigan tournaments will also need to be registered with Nuway / Myway. This registration is $18 and can be applied for at https://www.nuwaymembership.com.
For all practices and tournaments, wrestlers with longer hair need it pulled back and/or utilize a hair treatment/covering which integrates with headgear. Also, all wrestlers need to have fingernails trimmed neatly and tight to the finger. Wrestlers are required to have wrestling shoes for practices and tournaments. Headgear and mouth guards are required for tournaments, though some choose to use them for practices as well.
Attire for practices can range from shorts and a t-shirt, sweatpants, tights, compression shirt, or even a singlet (though most do not wear a singlet for practices). For tournaments, a singlet or approved compression shirt/shorts combination is required. Nearly all wrestlers, especially youth wrestlers, still prefer a singlet. However, compression competition wear is growing in popularity.
