NCWA Adds a Weight Class for Women

This past weekend at the Vision Forum, NCWA Wrestling has added a new weight class for women.  There is now a #235 weight class.    So all the upper weight girls now have an opportunity to continue their wrestling careers by attending an NCWA affiliated college or university.

 

The National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NCWA) is a nonprofit association of 162 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organize the wrestling programs of many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. It is led by founder and executive director Jim Giunta headquartered in Dallas, Texas and built to help the promotion of collegiate wrestling.

Many teams were formerly NCAA programs displaced by Title IX legislation and/or are preparing to join the NCAA, NAIA, or NJCAA. Teams in transition to a higher division not eligible for the NCAA postseason also compete in the NCWA.

The Vision Forum where the rule change took place focuses on the NCWA rule changes, policies, and procedures from the previous season and if any modifications need to be made or new topics need to be discussed.
