*+2lb Allowance

Rules
  • A wrestler may only be on one (1) team roster per each dual tournament. 

  • Wrestlers can only wrestle a match at the roster spot their actual weight places them and the one spot higher. No wrestler may wrestle up more than one weight above their roster spot.

  • If a wrestler does bust weight for their registered spot, then they will automatically be bumped up.

  • A wrestler may NOT wrestle another wrestler more than three (3) grade levels higher.

  • For example: A 3rd grader can wrestle a 6th grader, but not a 7th grader.

  • All rosters must be updated with current grade levels for the wrestlers.  Failure to input a grade level will deem the wrestler ineligible to wrestle.

  • These matchups where the two wrestlers are more than three (3) grades apart will result in a Double Forfeit and will not be a scoring bout for either team.

  • If you have two wrestlers on your roster at the same weight, then you must wrestle the wrestler that will be within the grade level range for that dual match.

  • The coaches for both teams will be responsible for verifying the grade level for both wrestlers before their dual with each other starts. Once a match has started, this will no longer be a double forfeit and team score will be scored accordingly.

  • In the case of a double forfeit for the reason of the age gap rule, the match may still be wrestled as an exhibition at the end of the dual match 

  • Team Scoring:

    • 6 Points - Pin, DQ, FF

    • 5 Points - Tech

    • 4 Points - Major

    • 3 Points - Decision

  • A roster can not contain wrestlers from more than 2 teams. 

  • A roster can not contain wrestlers from more than 2 teams.  Any wrestlers from additional teams will NOT be allowed to help your team’s score. Those matchups will be counted as a forfeit and will score as such. These wrestlers may ONLY wrestle matches as exhibitions. Any free agents placed on your team by the tournament director WILL count towards your team’s score.

  • Match Times

    • ALL matches will be three (3) Periods @ 1.5 min (90 seconds) period lengths

  • At the end of a dual match between two teams, those teams may wrestle exhibition matches for those extra team members that did NOT get a match during that dual match when time allows.

  • Coaches misconduct - 1 team point
