Before you can wrestle with the Rhinos you must provide proof you have a current USAW Wrestling Card.
For liability reasons Wrestlers will not be able to set foot on the mat until we have seen your current USAW Wrestling Card. A USAW Membership provides insurance in case of injury at at USAW events. Please see the USAW website for the full details.
Most preferred is to bring a copy of your USAW Cards on one full-size sheet of paper for the rhinos records. Full sheets of paper are easier to handle than small slips of paper. We will also accept just seeing your USAW card, a printed copy, photon on your phone, or the USAW app are all acceptable.
If you attend any USAW event (tournaments, scrimmages, etc.) you will be required to show a copy of your USAW card to participate, there are no exceptions. They will turn you a away if you cannot show your card. We recommend making several copies of your card putting on in dad's wallet, mom's wallet, the glove box, your wrestling bag, etc. Also take a picture with your phone. If you have provided us with a copy of your USAW card we may have a copy with us at major events as an extra backup (but do NOT rely on that).
If it is Folkstyle season (Oct-Feb) and you are not sure what to buy we recommend the $15 (at this time) Limited Folkstyle Athlete membership. This membership will allow you to practice with the Rhinos during Folkstyle season and to attend USAW Folkstyle events. If it is For the Freestyle season (Mar-Jun) you will need the $45 (at this time) Athlete Membership. This membership will allow you to practice with the Rhinos during both Freestyle and Folkstyle seasons and to attend USAW Freestyle and Folkstyle events. If you purchase the Limited membership and decide to continue wrestling in the Freestyle season you can upgrade your membership for the price difference (there is no upgrade surcharge).
Please also bring a copy of your card with you to your first practice. We may not have time to process the e-mailed image before the next practice session.
You can purchase your card here. If you need help, there are instructions here
