RULES / FORMAT: The tournament will be organized into three pools , with each team competing against the other three teams in round robin style within their respective pools. Championship rounds will be determined by pool placement. Each team will get 6 duals. Pool assignment will be done by random draw, by a coach of each team. Wrestlers must be in 3rd-8th grade. Your roster can consist of any mix of grades, HOWEVER, you may never wrestle a wrestler with a difference of two grades unless approved ahead of time by both coaches. If an agreement is not met, the bout will not be scored. All rosters are allowed to have 5 alternates (any weight you chose) for a maximum of 18 wrestlers on a roster. All bouts will be 1-1-1 minutes in length. Certified Officials will be used for all matches . A coin flip before each dual will determine who sends out their wrestler first . All duals will start at the 53-pound division and run in order. Exhibition matches will be done at the conclusion of the dual and set up between the opposing coaches. However, exhibition matches will only be allowed with time permitting because we must stay on schedule.
