Proposal would let wrestlers compete in shorts
April 29, 2019


The NCAA Wrestling Rules Committee recommended allowing wrestlers to compete in shorts designed for the sport and removing all language in the rules book regarding the length of a wrestler’s hair.

If approved, the changes would take effect in the 2019-20 academic year.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel is scheduled to discuss all wrestling rules proposals via teleconference June 13.

Committee members, who met in Indianapolis earlier this month, wanted to make the rules for hair less rigid and provide an additional option for the competition uniform.
