WRESTLING INFORMATION FOR STUDENT-ATHLETES

SKIN LESIONS

PROTECTION AGAINST SKIN LESIONS

The best protection is prevention. 

  • Shower after practice ASAP.
  • Don't share clothes, towels, headgear, or razors.
  • Wash clothes daily.
  • Wash or rinse body with hibiclens or other approved substance. Usually over the counter anti-fungal medication can help with ringworm (use as directed). 
  • Report any skin lesions to the Athletic Trainer and Coach ASAP. Even if you started at home treatment with anti-fungal medication. 
  • See a medical professional for evaluation & bring a note on the appropriate form before next participation.

WRESTLERS WITH SKIN LESIONS

Wrestlers with skin lesions should inform the wrestling coach and Athletic Trainer ASAP about any skin concerns on their body. They can possibly participate AFTER evaluation by the Athletic Trainer. Then they must see a licensed physician for evaluation, treatment, and proper clearance. Typically the student-athlete MUST avoid practice (contact with opponent) for a minimum of 3 days or more depending on the type of condition.

  • To print out the appropriate NCHSAA Skin Lesion Form go to "Forms" under Athletic Training in this website or visit the NCHSAA website and look under Wrestling.
  • NCHSAA requires the appropriate from before participation in practice & meets.
  • Failure for the appropriate note may cause the student-athlete to be ineligible until the correct forms are provided.
