Wrestle Like A Girl’s Collegiate Initiatives are focused on attaining NCAA Emerging Sport Status, with the follow on goal of attaining NCAA Championship Status.

The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics has recommended women’s wrestling for NCAA Emerging Sport Status to the Div. I, II, and III Committees for an official ESS designation August 01, 2020.

Wrestle Like A Girl and the National Wrestling Coalition are working with the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics to get NCAA ESS and Championship Status. Updates will be provided when possible.
