Minor correction/addendum

 

DI and DII have limits on training, but not too crazy of limits
DIII has a more strict and lower limit on training, meaning they have X number of hours they can practice and such. 

NAIA has no rules they can technically have full full practice every day of the week.

 

Someone that likes to read rule books can give you more details on the time commitments.

 

 

They all have some rule in place of being on the mat though.  You can have "pre season" training.

My experience with D1 was that off season was harder than in season as far as work out commitment.  My experience with  D3 was the off season was more off.  Things were available but not "required".  Probably varies greatly with school.  I also feel that to be truly great at the D1 level, your commitment needs to be to wrestling, school second.  Yes there are outliers, but wrestling D1 (well) and the hard sciences is a tough task.

Some DI schools I just shake my head when I recruited against them for smaller college levels,  you would have a kid go to a DI and it wasn't uncommon for us to say..."well, feel free to contact us if things don't work out."
