GOTM guests on California Girls Wrestling Podcast


This week has been amazing! So much going on here at GOTM and we can’t wait to share all the exciting opportunities popping up! One fun thing we got to participate in recently was guesting on the California Girls Wrestling Podcast! They spoke with Cookie about all kinds of topics and then followed up with me! It was such an honor to be a part of something that is ultimately bringing much needed attention to girls wrestling. The guys who are a part of this podcast are definitely doing everything in their power to help grow the sport and we will always support that! Click here to listen to the podcast! 



Even when things are meant to be, they still come as a shock and with so much gratitude and appreciation. We really believe we have something special here at Girl on the Mat. We are seeing first hand the impact we are having on the lives of young girls. With only a couple months under our belt, we are growing quickly and seeing more girls gaining confidence both on and off the mat. We were thrilled when NOW THIS HER reached out to us to do a video on what we were doing! Check it out! For any girls looking for a way to get their foot in the door and onto a mat, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

GOTM Cookie Serratos!



What a ride this has been! Shortly after getting our nonprofit status finalized, we were approached by Refinery 29‘s Anomaly to film Girl on the Mat’s very own Cookie Serratos! They spent two whole days with her, doing interviews and even following her to the Vector Wrestling Camp she was attending! They put together this amazing video that has reached almost a million views in a matter of a week! So grateful to be able to spread the word about girl’s wrestling and hopefully grow the sport!

Shoe or cake?!?!

One of our very own celebrated a birthday and asked for, you guessed it….a wrestling themed party! The party was a blast, but the cake was definitely the highlight of the event. Check out this JB Elite III cake!
