"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it."
– Maya Angelou


Wrestle Like A Girl ("WLAG") was founded by Sally Roberts, a 2x World Bronze Medalist in women’s wrestling on the premise that girls and women across the United States should be afforded opportunities to participate in wrestling. The WLAG organization works to promote female wrestling and cultivate the whole athlete in developmental process.


Empowerment camps and clinics are more than just wrestling clinics; they work to develop the total athlete by educating wrestlers on the importance of proper nutrition, hydration, and the importance and application of sport psychology. Empowerment Camps and Clinics employ some of the nations best women’s wrestling clinicians to teach wrestling techniques. And utilizing the Wrestle Like A Girl handbook, they will share their personal stories and knowledge of how nutrition, hydration and sport psychology played into their successful careers.
