Pre-Register Now!


NOTE: Only TOT and Bantam divisions will use satellite weigh in sheet.  We encourage and fully expect our coaches and club representatives to demonstrate honor and integrity in the weigh-in process. Each Club will weigh in their wrestlers on Thursday night before practice or by Friday before the noon deadline. The wrestler’s weight will be written on his left arm by a coach or club representative. The coach will then email the official weigh-in document to the Tournament Operations Director and State Teams Director by the noon CST deadline on Friday morning.  The only document that will be accepted for satellite weigh in will be the one provided by the Tournament Operations Director.  If you do not have a copy please e-mail him to obtain a copy. The Tournament Operations Director will match the Club Weigh-in Document to the Trackwrestling Pre-Registration Data to ensure all wrestlers are in the correct bracket.


Age groups Midget, Novice and Schoolboy 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.


Tournament Host: Kristie Carty,

Tournament Operations Director: Ben Wanagat,


AWO Standards will be used for age divisions and weight classes.

The wrestle-back format will be used to determine a true second place finish.
