2017 Wrestling Uniform Guideline Changes
Worried about the recent changes to the wrestling uniform guidelines? Here's what you need to know. The NFHS Rules Review Committee has recently updated the guidelines for wrestling uniforms. After meeting with every major wrestling uniform manufacturer and reviewing all options, the committee made several changes. The major change being that as an alternative to the one-piece singlet, a two-piece uniform option will now be allowed. The top must be a compression shirt and the bottom must be approved compression shorts or shorts designed for wrestling. There are several guidelines for the design of these optional uniform pieces.
So what does this mean for coaches? How should you order for next season? First and foremost, order your team gear from Takedown Sportswear.
