Middle School State Finals

 

Registration & Weigh-in

Procedure

 

1.  All Registrations must be completed at Trackwrestling.com and the

     registration fee must be paid.  No one is in the tournament until they are

     registered and paid at Trackwrestling.  There is a deadline for

     registration posted on Trackwrestling. 

 

2.  When the wrestler registers they must declare the weight class they will

     be wrestling in the tournament.  This is the weight class they must make

     on Sunday at the Middle School State.  If they do not make

     this weight class they will not wrestle in the tournament and there will

     be no refund.  No one will be moved up a weight class if they fail to

     make weight.

 

3.  Weigh-ins will be held Sunday morning prior to the wrestler going to the mat

     for their first match.  This is the only time the wrestler will weigh-in.  Their

     weigh-in will be in uniform with a one (1) pound allowance.

     (example - wrestlers in the 102 pound weight class must make 103).

 

4.  All Wrestlers must turn in a Medical release form and have their USA

     Card # verified when they arrive Sunday morning.

 

5.  There will be no refunds for any reason.  We can foresee a number of

     people saying the wrestler was hurt, or sick, simply because they decide

     they do not want to come on Sunday morning, or because they were

     trying to cut too much weight and realized they could not make weight.

 

6.  Should the event be postponed for any reason it will be held on Sunday

     Feb. 26.  If the event is cancelled completely, and not made up refunds

     would be given to those who send a self-addressed, and stamped, envelope

     to Rex Peckinpaugh 801 Parkview Dr., New Castle, IN  47362 (the request

     should include the name and wt. class of the wrestler.

Weigh-in & Registration

FAQ

 

Why are we doing it this way?

We are registering, and weighing in, in this manner to expedite the process and make things as fair as possible to the most people.  We did not have many qualified volunteers for satellite weigh-in sites, and many wrestlers had conflicts with Middle School matches.  By doing it this way we will accomplish several things.

            1.  Make sure everyone that wants to wrestle gets the chance.

            2.  Have less mistakes to deal with because of poorly filled out, or

                 missing, FAX documents.

            3. Control excessive weight cutting.  If someone wishes to cut a

                bunch of weight for the tournament they can still do so, but they

                will not have almost three days to put it all back on.

            4. Give ourselves a chance to start on time, or very close to it.

 

Can I move up a weight class once I am registered?

NO.  You must register in the weight class you wish to wrestle.  If you want to wrestle in the 100 pound weight class you need to register for that weight class. 

 

What happens if I do not make weight Sunday morning?  Can I move up a weight class or lose weight and make weight for, and wrestle, in round #2?

If you do not make weight Sunday morning you are out of the tournament.  You may not move up a weight class, and you may not lose weight to wrestle in the second round.  This is why you need to choose your weight class wisely.  Anyone who cannot make their weight class, in uniform, with a one pound allowance should probably not have been trying to make that weight class to begin with.

 

What does “in uniform” mean?

In uniform means you will wear a singlet. 

 

Can we register and pay with a school/club check?

No. 

 

 

***We do not for see the tournament being postponed, but in the event of a postponment by the hosts the tournament will be rescheduled for Sunday February 26.  All rules above would apply at that time as well.
