Wrestling is a one-on-one sport where you and your opponent go head-to-head in a small circle on a mat, trying to use various techniques and moves to either pin your opponent to win or score more points than your opponent to win. Wrestling is as mentally vigorous as it is physically, you must be able to anticipate your opponent’s next moves and counter with moves equal in power. 

Various equipment is used in wrestling, such as the mat. The mat not only sets the boundaries of the match, it also is meant to protect the wrestlers. Equipment also includes a Wrestling Singlet, Wrestling Headgear, Wrestling Shoes, Wrestling Kneepads, Mouth Guards, and Wrestling Bands. 

Costs for wrestling in High School are inexpensive compared to other sports. The registration fee is generally $100-$175, this includes the uniform, apparel, etc. You do have to pay for your own equipment which the prices of can vary.
