11/21/13 – Wrestling Rule Interpretation

November 21, 2013 Wrestling Blog Updates

We have had a request for a ruling on the use of an ‘MMA Style’ headgear. The ‘MMA Style’ headgear is considered ILLEGAL equipment and is not approved to use in Kentucky per the NFHS. If a contestant shows up with this style headgear during competition then it should be handled as any other ILLEGAL Equipment (Start Injury Time, issue a Technical Violation and they have 1.30 to correct).
