USA Wrestling Cards
This will be a USA Wrestling sanctioned event and USA Wrestling cards will be
necessary to wrestle. Please visit the USA Wrestling website to purchase a card
All wrestlers must be 14 and under (as of 12/31/18) OR 8th grade and under. Be
prepared to present wrestler's birth certificate should an opposing team challenge a
wrestler's age. For wrestlers over the age limit currently in 8th grade or under should
be prepared to show their report card which shows current school year and grade. If
a team would like to challenge a wrestlers age or grade, the challenging team will be
required to present birth certificates or reports cards for all wrestlers on their team.
Teams may have more than one wrestler per weight class. Wrestlers may wrestle up
one weight class only. Rosters will be due on Thursday, January 24th. Rosters will
be entered in to trackwrestling. Wrestlers may be added to roster until the end of
weigh-ins on Saturday, January 26th. Wrestlers can be added, scratched or moved
to a different weight class during weigh-ins. Once statisticians are locked out of
trackwrestling on Thursday night, wrestlers can not change teams without permission
from both head coaches.
Matches will be 3 1.5 minute periods with standard overtime rules.
Each team will need to provide a table worker for their match in every round.
Headgear is mandatory and team singlets are preferred.
Seeding will be based on previous placement at the McDonogh Duals. In addition we
will take other dual tournaments into consideration. Seeding will be left up to the
tournament directors discretion.
Ties are figured out by trackwrestling based on standard tie-breaking rules.
