There is NO WEIGHT ALLOWANCE - there is a 7 week difference between the first qualifier and the State Championships. If weight is an issue to hold between that period, MOVE UP. We do not condone weight cutting as it is unhealthy for the body, unhealthy for the sport, and only hurts the kids. BE SMART.
***Wrestlers must complete their bracket to qualify for the State Tournament. Wrestlers that are injured during a finals match and are unable to continue may still qualify depending on their placement.
***Regulation period times are 1:30, 1:30, 1:30 for all age groups. Wrestleback period times are 1:30, 60, 60 for any bracketed weight class.
***NOTE: If a wrestler does not qualify or just not ready for the state championships, try out the MSWA Future Champion Series
***Note regarding MSWA Future Champion wrestlers, once a wrestler qualifies for the MSWA Champions State Tournament, wrestlers are no longer eligible to compete in the MSWA Future Champion Series (which is designed for beginner/experienced wrestlers only). Wrestlers are considered advanced once they qualify for the MSWA Champions State Tournament.
