Flag Wrestling Powered by Attack Bandz

We have taken Toe Tag to the next level!   

 Football has flag football. Baseball has tee-ball. Now, we have Flag Wrestling.   

 By participating in this new, entry-level category of wrestling; wrestlers are exposed to a variety of wrestling positions, scrambling situations/movements INSTINCTIVELY, WHILE HAVING A TON OF FUN DOING IT! 

HOW DO MATCHES WORK? 

  • PAIR WRESTLERS UP BY MADISON WT CLASSES 
  • PLACE ATTACK BANDZ ON EACH WRESTLER’S ANKLE (MAKE SURE THE PULL STRAP IS HANGING OUT) 
  • HAVE WRESTLERS SHAKE HANDS, TOE THE LINE, AND BLOW THE WHISTLE TO START THE MATCH 
  • USE 1ST “RIP” WINS, OR BEST 2 OUT OF 3 RIPS FORMAT TO DETERMINE WINNER 
  • DO NOT ALLOW WRESTLERS TO “HIDE” OR TUCK THE PULL STRAP 
  • DO NOT ALLOW WRESTLERS TO COVER THE PULL STRAP WITH THEIR HANDS 
  • BLOW WHISTLE, STOP ACTION, AND RESTART ON THEIR FEET IF WRESTLERS GET IN A BAD POSITION(IE=FLAT ON THEIR STOMACHS OR HIPS)
