WRESTLING ON CSTV The ASICS U.S. National Open from Las Vegas will be on College Sports Television (CSTV) this week. It is scheduled for Friday night at 9pm EST, and there will be numerous “DoubleTakes” throughout the week. We will post updated information on the CSTV section of our web page.

I have worked hard for many years to promote our sport and get more wrestling on television. CSTV has now made that a reality. USA Wrestling’s Gary Abbott states “CSTV has made a commitment to covering wrestling. They aired 11 college wrestling broadcasts this season. Now you can also tune in to CSTV for the best of international wrestling, featuring major USA Wrestling events.”

PROMOTE WRESTLING IN YOUR COMMUNITYI encourage you to review this three article series for ideas that you can implement in your community. Print them and share with your coaches.

CLIFF KEEN WORLD OF WRESTLINGCliff Keen and Jack Roller know how to promote our sport, and they have created a series of exciting and challenging youth tournaments that attract dedicated wrestlers from across the nation.
