United States Wrestling Foundation
The Silent Army. It’s the millions of men and women in America who have wrestled. Many are still involved in the sport. Some have drifted away. But for all of us, our experience in wrestling has a powerful emotional pull. That is because whether you were an Olympic Champion or just an average high school wrestler, you know that wrestling was one of the toughest things you ever did. And you feel pride in having been a wrestler.
The United States Wrestling Foundation is a new organization whose leadership is comprised of some of wrestling’s greatest competitors as well as prominent business people who are significant supporters of our sport. We are dedicated to the goal of growing wrestling, by working with other wrestling organizations to start new programs and making the USA Wrestling Team (Freestyle, Women and Greco-Roman) the best in the world. See Our Leadership and The Mission tabs above for more information.
We’re On a Mission to Start New College Wrestling Programs
The US Wrestling Foundation joins in solidarity with the National Wrestling Coaches Association to start new wrestling programs all over the country. We’ve only just begun, but here are a few new programs that we’ve help fund.
- Williams Baptist College - Arkansas wrestling is growing at all levels. Now they have a place to wrestling in college!
- Huntingdon College – Dan Gable joined the celebration to welcome Huntingdon as the first four-year college in Alabama to offer wrestling.
- Warner Pacific College – This storied program had been dormant since 1975, but now lives again with both a women’s and men’s team for the fans of Oregon wrestling.
- Lyon College – Once again, Arkansas is on the rise with new teams for both men and women.
