I've just been in contact with the MHSAA after sending in a proposal to include Sand Wrestling as a spring sport. To cut to the chase, they are on board and seem excited about the benefits of adding this version of wresting as an officially sanctioned high school sport in Michigan. Before they go ahead and include Sand Wrestling, they are about to inquire with school districts across the state over the next two months to find out how many schools will be on board.
You can help! Contact your local athletic director and tell them that you are interested in springtime wrestling. I do intend to send out the same proposal to other state high school associations, so please stay tuned!
If you are unaware about the sport of Sand Wrestling, I highly recommend checking out the website, www.sandwrestling.com
