What You Should Bring

The beauty of wrestling is that it requires little that you can’t find within yourself. That said, you’ll want to bring a few things with you to practice.

1. Comfortable clothes

Bring a t-shirt, socks, and either soft shorts or sweatpants. Bring a second t-shirt to wear home. You don’t want to travel in a shirt soaked in sweat.

2. Bottle of water

You will sweat and want to stay hydrated.

3. Training Shoes

Don’t wear your ever-day sneakers to practice. You’ll end up with wear and tear injuries. Bring a pair of training shoes with traction for the grass that will support you during runs and foot work drills.
