RIP wrestling singlet? New option in store for 2017-18
May 12, 2017


Enacting change is never easy in a sport with roots dating back to the dawn of civilization.

That didn’t stop the National Federation of State High School Associations Board of Directors from approving 11 rule changes for the 2017-18 wrestling season, including one which could spell the end for a uniform that’s as iconic as it is unique.

The revision to Rule 4-1-1 allows high school wrestlers throughout the country the option to wear the traditional singlet or a two-piece uniform composed of a form-fitted compression shirt with either compression shorts or a looser-fitting style of shorts similar to those worn on the mixed martial arts circuit.
