SanctionPA

Currently the PIAA does not officially sanction girls wrestling as a high school sport in the state. The PIAA has stated that 100 schools need to sponsor a girls wrestling team before they will sanction it and create a PIAA Girls Wrestling State Championship.

SanctionPA is a movement intended to grow girls wrestling within PA and to get to that goal of 100 schools as quickly as possible.

Visit sanctionpa.com today to find lots of information on how you can help start a girls program at your school. There is even a template document and a template presentation you can use in your proposal for your school.
