National Wrestling Coaches Association - NWCA

The Case for Wrestling at University of Delaware Prepared by Mike Moyer, National Wrestling Coaches Association Why Wrestling At University of Delaware? The premier high school wrestling tournament in the nation is hosted at the Bob Carpenter Center each year. This features the top 100 high school teams across America. The Delaware Wrestling Alliance, which is comprised of high profile business leaders, is uniquely positioned to provide ongoing financial support for the UDEL program. This organization has provided over $850,000 in scholarship to deserving Delaware student-wrestlers since its inception. Delawares best and brightest studentwrestlers should not have to leave the state to pursue their academic and wrestling dreams. A wrestling team could be nationally competitive in three years which could significantly elevate the schools Learfield Directors Cup ranking with a very low cost ratio. Wrestling is an indoor sport with modest facility needs (42 x 90 practice room). Its easy to add and its a cost effective way to grow enrollment with strong students. University of Delaware would be an affiliate member of the EIWA Conference which features the Ivy League schools and other elite academic institutions such as Lehigh, Bucknell, Hofstra, American University, etc. UDEL has some very influential wrestling alumni such as Dave Dewalt, former CEO of McAfee and FireEye. The best high school wrestling in America is located within a 5 hour radius of UDEL. There are 13,500 high school female wrestlers and only 30 intercollegiate teams to support that interest. The NWCA has recently applied for NCAA Emerging Sport Status being that we have 9 member schools that currently sponsor wrestling and three more strongly considering it.

Egalitarian Sport - provides opportunities regardless of size due to weight classification

competition. Across all three NCAA divisions, wrestling has the highest percentage of first generation college bound students. One of the few sports to provide mainstream opportunity to the visually impaired, deaf and disabled student-athletes. Womens wrestling is now an Olympic sport (USA finished 3rd in the 2015 World Championships out of 54 countries) and over 13,500 young women are wrestling in high schools across America (state championships are hosted in 7 states HI, AK, WA, OR, CA, TX, TN). Helen Maroulis 2016 Olympic Champion Anthony Robles/Arizona St 2011 NCAA Champion Wrestlers Perform on and off the Mat Below is some Academic Profile research data on 434 freshman wrestlers for the 2012/13 year. This data was provided by the NCAA Research Department (they mentioned that this data does not change much from year to year): Average high school GPA of wrestlers in core academic courses = 3.255. This is within .05 points of mens lacrosse, mens tennis, and mens ice hockey. Wrestling is near the average for male student-athletes. Average GPA across all male general student body = 3.24. Average SAT for wrestlers = 1084; average ACT for wrestlers (sum score) = 93. Averages for all male general student body = 1052 and 90 respectively. Many of Division Is most thriving intercollegiate wrestling programs are at elite academic institutions such as Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, Lehigh, etc. Wrestling Supports the Educational Mission NCAA statistics indicate that wrestling (all three college divisions combined) has the largest percentage of first generation college bound students. Many of our top NCAA Division I wrestling teams are at elite academic institutions. Many of our nations top corporate, political, military, and

community leaders have wrestling backgrounds. 13 United States Presidents wrestled. There is no professional level for amateur wrestling so our sport does not attract student-athletes who are simply trying to use college as a stepping stone to the professional level. . Ability to be Competitive on A National Level Historically, upwards to 85% of NCAA D-I institutions (that sponsor wrestling) qualify at least one wrestler to the national championships each year. Approximately 37% percent of NCAA Division I institutions (that sponsor wrestling) will have an All American in any given year. With nearly 250,000 high school wrestlers in America (7th most popular high school boys sport) and only 77 NCAA DI wrestling programs, University of Delaware can be nationally competitive in the first 3-5 years. The 2016 NCAA Championships were sold out at Madison Square Garden Increase Enrollment/Revenue Despite the fact that high school wrestling is the 7th most popular high school boys sport in America with nearly 250,000 participants, there are only 77 NCAA Division I wrestling programs. This assures University of Delaware will attract a healthy roster, many of which will be paying out-of-state tuition rates.

A fully funded Division I wrestling program only has 9.9 scholarships so with a roster of 30 wrestlers, most will be paying their own tuition, room, and board (this is consistent with most of the wrestling programs at elite academic institutions). By NCAA standards, wrestling has a low cost per student athlete. Modest Cost / Minimum Needs Wrestling has a relatively low cost per student athlete comparatively speaking to other NCAA male sports. Based on budget numbers from a typical CAA Conference mens wrestling team, the costs are as follows: $25,000 a. Salary & Benefits (head coach & 2 full time assistants): $85,000, $45,000, b. Operating Budget (travel, recruiting, anything other than personnel): $100,000 d. Scholarship (9.9 full scholarships): Start Up Costs 2 Wrestling Mats: $10,000/mat Modest facilities requirements - a wrestling room that is minimally 90 by 42 Uniforms & practice gear: $10,000 (Mens) Division I Conference Teams (Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association - EIWA) Ivy League Other

(since 1999, scholastic boys wrestling has grown by nearly 20,000 participants). Since 1994, the number of high schools that sponsor wrestling has grown from 8559 to 10,600/boys. Over the past decade, wrestling in the inner cities has exploded in popularity through a Beat-The-Streets programs (New York City is growing the fastest). As reported by National Federation of State High School Associations, scholastic wrestling state championships are among the top five sports in terms of revenue production. This mirrors revenue production of the NCAA Championships. 154 new college wrestling programs have been established since 2001 at all collegiate levels (and 24 new college teams just for the 2016/17 season). Womens wrestling can qualify for NCAA Emerging Sport Status with the addition of one more team at an NCAA member institutions (high profile alumni at Arizona State, Franklin & Marshall, UPENN, and Columbia have expressed interest).
