AYWO-AAU Warrior Clash
December 3rd, 2015
Thompson High School
100 Warrior Dr.
Alabaster, AL 35007
Notice to all warriors! The AYWO Gladiator Award Series begins this Saturday.
You are about to compete in a time honored event of battling hardened and elite competitors. Do you have what it takes to defeat the other warriors and receive the Warrior Hammer! Much like Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, only the most worthy of warriors can wield its mighty force. If you’re ready for the fiercest competition in the state, bring your inner warrior and compete for the Warrior Hammer.
This week, we will be awarding custom engraved Warrior Hammers to the Outstanding Wrestlers in each age division. The war hammer was created to deliver a full force blow and over take the opponent that were wearing hardened steel armor.
Please note that wrestlers will need their AAU Card and Trackwrestling number to pre-register. Tournament Fee is paid
online. Each wrestler may compete in one weight class in two age divisions. When pre-registering, each wrestler is required to select a skill level. Any time there are four or more Beginners in a weight class they will have a separate bracket. Any wrestler who fails to pre-register will NOT be able to compete in the tournament.
Registration will cost $12.00. Late registration will cost $17.00.
Normal Registration DEADLINE: Friday December 2nd at 9:00 am CST
Late Registration: 9:01am to 12:00 pm CST
NOTE: Only 6U and 8U divisions will use satellite weigh in sheet. We encourage and fully expect our coaches and club representatives to demonstrate integrity in the weigh-in process. Each Club will weigh in their wrestlers on Thursday night after practice or by Friday before the 12:00 pm deadline. The Wrestler’s weight will be written on his left arm by a coach or club representative. Follow the directions on the Satellite Weigh-In Page on how to copy and share the weigh-in sheet. Be sure to share the document with AYWO, Tournament Host, and Tournament Director by the 12:00 pm deadline on Friday. The Tournament Host and Tournament Director will match the Club Weigh-in Document to the Pre-Registration Data to ensure all wrestlers are in the correct bracket. Note: Please review the AAU policy on satellite weigh-in as well as the rules pertaining to growth allowance and challenge procedures.
Age groups 10U, 12U and 14U will begin 1 hour prior to start time of each age division and will end 15 min prior to start time. Each wrestler must weigh in during their appointed weigh in times. After the weigh in is closed, any wrestler that misses the weigh in can bump up to the next division.
AWO Standards will be used for age divisions and weight classes.
