On June 17, the next major step towards an official NCAA championship in women’s wrestling was made. The NCAA Division I Council approve Acrobatics & Tumbling and Women’s Wrestling as Division I emerging sports. Earlier this year, NCAA Division II and Division III approved women’s wrestling for Emerging Sports Status.
On Episode 608 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we visit with Sally Roberts and Julia Salata of Wrestle Like A Girl, one of the main driving forces into moving women’s wrestling forward on the college level.
We’ll explain exactly what the next steps are for women’s wrestling among NCAA schools, the timetable on the first official NCAA championship, some of the hurdles the effort has cleared as well as what they’ve learned from other emerging sports like Beach Volleyball.
