Children should NEVER be encouraged to cut weight for any reason. MYWA Coaches should ALWAYS discourage and/or prohibit extreme weight loss. The MYWA now restricts weight loss at the time of weigh-ins on the day of the tournament. If a wrestler steps on the scale in the presence of an MYWA official, their weight is noted and they will need to follow the following guide: Weight Loss Caps: Wrestlers who weigh 111 lbs and under can lose up to 2 lbs. Wrestlers who weigh 112 lbs and up can lose up to 3 lbs. SKIN CHECKS Coaches are encouraged to do a skin check on their wrestlers before each tournament. Skin Checks will be done at weigh-ins. Official doctor’s notes are required at weigh-in for questionable skin and/or health conditions. MYWA officials may exclude wrestlers from wrestling if there are skin and /or health-related concerns.

WEIGHT CLASSES: There will be no specific weight classes but wrestlers will be grouped into weight classes based on the Madison system using the following criteria. All kids will weigh-in including K-2. 1) The ideal situation is to have a maximum of 8 Wrestlers in a class. 2) The ideal situation is to have wrestlers who are on the same team in a separate bracket. No other factors will be considered for weight classes There will be no skill based seeding or grouping. Exceptions can be made by the MYWA Board in situations where weight classes are too small and/or there is a large difference in size, age, and skill WEIGH-INS: For K-4 kids will weigh in kids based on a decimal system and they will be grouped into weight classes based on their weight.

There will be no more than two coaches in the corner at any time. Teams warned more than two times for that day would have team points deducted for each additional violation. No Exceptions! Coaches must follow MYWA rules for team scoring. If a wrestler does not qualify to earn points for your program because they live in a town that has a MYWA member program, you must disclose the wrestler and they cannot score points for your program. This rule is only for calculating team standings. Violations of this rule may lead to a loss of your team award and/or a reduction in standings.

During live wrestling, wrestlers must not be on the mats unless called for their bout because they are wrestling next.

Parents: Parents must stay in the stands and outside of areas designated for coaches and competing wrestlers. Please keep the first row of the stands open for wrestlers and coaches. If you are, videotaping you must have permission from the tournament director and be restricted to areas designated for videography. Team Scoring Team scores are at the Sectional and State Tournaments. At the State Championships, traditional scoring by KAP Wrestling’s scoring program (advancement points etc.). For the Sectional Tournaments MYWA is only granting placement points for the top 6 place winners. The number of wrestlers from an individual team who can score points is equal to the number of weight classes in that division. A team will only count its top wrestlers. The top six wrestlers in each weight class will score as follows: FIRST PLACE: 10 pointsSECOND PLACE: 6 pointsTHIRD PLACE: 5 pointsFOURTH PLACE: 3 pointsFIFTH PLACE: 1 pointSIXTH PLACE: 1/2 point If there are 4 or fewer kids in a bracket the points awarded place will be cut in half for that place winner.
