Interview w/ True Wrestling Insider, Website, High School & More!

by Rob Teet on 08/24/14

Yes, I know. It has been quite some time since there has been a fresh blog post on SandWrestling.com. Don't freak out, I've just been a bit preoccupied promoting this amazing style of international wrestling in other ways. Ways that include...

This interview with True Wrestling Insider. If you are looking for an entertaining (and perhaps, simultaneously informative), I would strongly recommend it. It's as easy as clicking on the following link: http://truewrestlinginsider.com/sand-wrestling-with-rob-teet-twi-administrator/

With summer just about ready to wind down, news concerning sand wrestling/ beach wrestling will understandably slow down in many areas, but that doesn't mean that our season is over. There are sure to be developments in addition to the warmer parts of the world competing in beaches and parks year-round. If there are any updates to the developments of FILA proposing this style to the IOC as an official Olympic style, a new contest to look forward to, or just a fresh batch of pictures or videos, this website will be periodically updated, so check back with us every so often. In fact, with the growing number of competitions this year and the potential amount of tournaments next summer (based off of feedback and inquiries from athletic clubs and individuals), this website is going to need to be revamped a bit (especially a new 'calendar' for the "Upcoming Events" page). If you have a suggestion, please let us know.

I'll end the post with something new that we are attempting. Some of you may have heard that we have contacted a high school athletic association, about sanctioning Sand Wrestling as an official spring sport, and yes that is true. The initial feedback was so positive that we went ahead and contacted 45 other high school athletic associations here in the United States. By all means, we don't want to get too excited just yet because nothing is certain. But you can help! Tell your athletic director that you would be interested in a high school sand wrestling team. Recruit your friends too! After all, one wrestler doesn't make up a team. ;)
