    Hey all,
    anyone in the know concerning girls wrestling becoming a sanctioned AIA sport next year? From what I learned from other coaches its been on the table for at least two years and AIA should have voted on it.
    The details that I know:
    girls wrestling would be a spring sport.
    girls wrestling would focus on freestyle
    coaches would be able to apply for position and / or get a new stipend
    it grow the f86k out of Arizona wrestling.

    I'm wondering if there is any NEW news on the matter. Any major thing blocking the new addition?

    My thoughts:
    money is always an issue
    insurance for freestyle wrestling (more injuries with throws and such?) though I feel this could be offset with coach training through USA wrestling, USA Wrestling Card purchase (will insure)
