Wrestling is one of the purest sports that requires first and foremost, superior physical and mental strength, and very little wrestling gear–just shoes, a wrestling singlet, and headgear.  Simple. That’s one of the reasons we love this sport.  Wrestling uniforms and the requirements are determined by the National Federation of State High School Associations and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

We’ve discussed shoes in an earlier post, so let’s move on to the wrestling singlet.  Folkstyle singlets are worn by the majority of wrestlers in the United States and are also referred to as “high-cut” due to the fact that they can go no lower than 4-6″ from the base of the neck and no lower than 4″ from under the arm-pit.  Freestyle singlets are universally worn by wrestlers across the world.  They are distinguished from other styles by the fact that the colors are restricted to dominant blue or dominant red and they can be as low as 6″ from the armpit and as low as 12″ from the front or back.

Headgear is designed for comfort, protection, and to help maximize an athlete’s performance. Suplay.com offers the Unique Morgan Gladiator Headgear.  The Morgan won’t come off in competition and offers Forehead protection from headbutts and abrasions.  Suplay  also carries a variety of headgear options from child size to adult athlete, as well as headgear components and replacement parts like chin straps.  Regardless of the size, our headgear selection is sure to provide security and free range of motion.  Ideally, athletes should forget they have it on as sound comes in and sweat goes out, and they come out of even the hardest head slaps completely unfazed.  Protect yourself or your athlete from the roughest ear and head abrasions–and that dreaded cauliflower ear–and come out of each victory unscathed!  Order your new model today or get a great deal on any of our closeout models.  Oh, and best of luck on your next match!
