The National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) is pleased to announce that ASICS America has signed on as the organization’s Official Apparel and Equipment sponsor through 2020.  As part of the new, four-year partnership, ASICS will be outfitting the Senior National finalists with both gear and apparel, as well as the officials and state representatives.  ASICS will also sponsor the NHSCA National Wrestling Coach of the Year and the NHSCA Senior Wrestler of the Year Awards.


“We are so pleased to announce our new relationship with ASICS and appreciate the brand’s support,” said Bobby Ferraro, Executive Director of the NHSCA.  “There are many levels to this partnership, but we’re especially excited about ASICS’ sponsorship of our Coach and Wrestler of the Year awards.  We look forward to working together to promote the sport of high school wrestling.”


“ASICS is thrilled to begin this partnership with the National High School Coaches Association,” said Kelly O'Rourke. “We look forward to working with the NHSCA to support youth sports and the student-athletes and coaches that make up the organization.”


“We are also excited to help honor the nation’s top wrestlers and wrestling coaches as sponsor of the NHSCA’s National Wrestler and National Coach of the Year awards,” added Kelly O'Rourke.  “ASICS has been the long-time leader in performance wrestling, and through these awards we are proud to recognize the wrestlers and coaches who play such an important role in the growth of the sport in the U.S.”


Since 2000, the NHSCA has honored the outstanding performances of high school wrestlers and coaches by awarding the National Wrestler of the Year and the National Wrestling Coach of the Year. Each Coach of the Year honoree will be honored in the National High School Sports Hall of Fame Museum.



Anima Sana In Corpore Sano, meaning "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body," is an old Latin phrase from which ASICS is derived and the fundamental platform on which the brand still stands. The company was founded more than 60 years ago by Kihachiro Onitsuka and is now a leading designer and manufacturer of performance athletic footwear, apparel and accessories.
