Rules & Guidelines

Rules and Guidelines for Ames Area Wrestling Club

  • Clean wrestling shoes or socks should be worn on the mat.
  • Make sure fingernails are cut and short
  • Cover all open wounds
  • Take a shower immediately after practice. 
  • Have shirts tucked in.


  • No laying down while at practice. When the coaches are speaking be in an upright position and eyes on the coach.
  • Only talk about wrestling while at practice.
  • Pick new partners each week. Avoid wrestling with siblings or friends. The unknown helps us grow!
  • Wrestlers not listening, disrupting, or not participating in practice will be sent to bench for a 5 minute break.
  • We encourage signing up for our youth tournament in January. It is a great experience and helps kids put what they learn into action.

If you have any questions, please speak with Erica in person, call 319-504-4424 or email
