Top Ten Toughest High School Sports

This is not toughest sports, but it's the toughest highschool sports. Ones which you dreaded all day, but you just couldn't quit.

The Top TenXW

1WrestlingWrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.

In the sport of wrestling, only 1 wrestler can represent the team for a given weight class in the varsity division. This means that you have to compete and win against every other team-mate you have in the same weight class for the right to compete at the next meet. Fail this, and you're next shot is JV (and no junior or senior wants to be here). Fail that, and you don't compete.

By far, the toughest high school sport out there. Requiring so much skill, strength, speed, determination, endurance, stamina, mental and physical fitness. Don't diss it unless you tried it. Anyone who trashes on it either hasnt tried it, or couldn't handle it.

There is never a time you recuperate or stop. Wrestling will consume you,after practice you do your home work and run for 2hours and during the day you don't go and sit down for a lunch you run to make weight

Aside from the skill, mental preparation, and physical contact, football requires loads of work to prepare you for the game.

3Cross Country

"Our sport is your sport's punishment"

Its torture if you suck at it, but if you are good then its really fun!

Running several miles a day is exhausting, and running 3.1 miles at your fastest pace is extremely tough as well. With it being an individual sport, you have so much more stress for competitions than team sports.


Rugby is just Football for men.

5LacrosseLacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.

Running, conditioning, skillwork, nonstop, and then practice starts.

7SwimmingSwimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

True training involves agony pain levels. Oh yeah, limited to no breathing.

When you get tired while swimming, it's a life-death situation...


Ice on blades, Fighting, big sticks... It's a mans sport...
