The story of the ‘Wrestle Like A Sally’ Shirt…

I was doing an obstacle course race and a man shouted ‘encouragement’ to his wife, “Come on, don’t be a Sally”. I looked at him, laughed and continued on to win the race.
I was at Basic Training and a new Soldier was struggling with some newly learned skills and the Drill Sargent yelled, “DON’T BE A SALLY”, just as I had finished completing the task.
I was at a wrestling tournament and I heard it again, someone shouting to a wrestler, “Don’t be a Sally!” as the wrestler was loosing. I stepped out on the mat and won my bout.
As I was finishing my last semester of college, I was in the library studying and heard someone tell his buddy... “don’t be A Sally” as his friend was ready to quit. I never saw either of them at graduation...


I’m not sure at what point 'being a Sally’ became negative in connotation, but to me, it has never been negative. While at an Army wrestling practice, our co-ed team laughed about how one person can change the meaning of a phrase. To us, 'Be a Sally’ and ‘Wrestle Like A Sally' means to take the hard road, don’t quite, don’t whine or complain when hardships occur, do your best and try for more and always, always help others to be their best. These ‘Wrestle Like A Sally’ shirts embrace that notion! With supporters like YOU, we will not only raise funds to support our young, developing female wrestlers but will also show the world what it means to ‘Wrestle Like A Sally’, which is just as tough as wrestling like a girl!!!


Thank you again for your support and for supporting women’s wrestling!
