  • ISU Wrestling

    This past spring there was talk of ISU starting a wrestling club, if so how's it coming along? Have the Redbirds joined the NCWA?

  • #2
    ISU's club team (Redbird Wrestling Club) is planning on joining the NCWA this year in hopes to create more interest on campus and more interest at the college level for schools that do not offer wrestling. We will be the only Illinois school in the NCWA, which needs to change.
    FYI our long term goal for this club is to garner enough interest in wrestling at Illinois State to allow for the consideration of reinstating the wrestling program as a Varsity Sport. Any support from the wrestling community is greatly appreciated.

        NCWA teams host and compete in duals and tournaments just like other programs. This year's Nationals are March 13-15 at the Polk County Convention Center, Florida.

          The ncwa does have duals and such, we compete in the ncwa division of at the NWCA national duals at northern iowa. Most opens also have a few NCWA teams there as well. At the end of the season there are several regionals that are national qualifiers, then the national tournament. This year the midwest, or north cental qualifier is at ohio state and the national tournament is just outside orlando.

                ISU's Coach

                Our coach for this year is former Stanford (Olympia) coach Mike Manahan, as well as a few of his former wrestlers.

                Our schedule should be posted later this month.

                    yes, I believe you have to be taking at least 6 credit hours per semester.

                          If the team joins the NCWA, all the team members wll need to take at least 6 credits at ISU plus whatever the college requires.
