Hornet Holiday Brawl

Chelsea High School
December 19, 2015


Santa Claus is coming to town!

And he’s losing in the finals!

That’s your gold medal. You have earned it in the practice room. You don’t let anyone take that from you, not even Santa. Even if you get a lump of coal in your stocking, it will be worth it. No one can take that gold medal away from you!

Calling all 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year wrestlers!

This week’s developmental tournament was made just for you. While some of our more experienced AWO wrestlers will be traveling to Gatlinburg, TN to participate in the Smoky Mountain Duals, the Hornet Holiday Brawl in Chelsea is for all wrestlers with 1-3 years experience. It’s your time to shine.

We are sending two teams the Smoky Mountain Duals and may still have a few open spots. Contact Shad Rissler at shadrissler@gmail.com or Todd Wheeler at twheeler@cedarstonegroup.com if you are interested in being on our AWO National Team.

This is developmental tournament!  Developmental tournaments are open to wrestlers with three years or less of experience in any wrestling league.  This will be validated through Track Wrestling, AAU, USA and SYWO.

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 wrestler who fails to pre-register will NOT be able to compete in the tournament.

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: Cody Sumners, chelseawrestlinghornets@gmail.com

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.

Coaches must maintain a visible AAU Card and must provide proof of the completed CDC Concussion training to be allowed on the mats and in the hospitality room.

Only two coaches are allowed in the corner during a match.
