Madison Dog Fight

The Battle for Huntsville

If it’s war you want, it’s war you get! The battlefield is Huntsville. This is hand to hand combat, mano a mano. Lace up your shoes and headgear nice and tight because there’s going to be turbulence. AAU Tennessee is getting ready to invade Alabama and many of their troops will be crossing the border to join the battle. 

To the victor goes the spoils and this week the Rudis Sword OW Award is BACK! We will be awarding custom engraved Rudis Swords to the Outstanding Wrestlers in each age division. The Rudis Wooden Sword was awarded to Roman Gladiators who had earned their freedom through glorious combat.  Last year the Madison Dog Fight was epic and five elite warriors, one from each age division, were deemed most worthy.  Will it be you this time? 


These hand-crafted, custom made awards will be the highlight of any trophy case. Don’t wait until the end of the season. You will have the opportunity to get rewarded for your accomplishments each and every week. Our goal at AWO is to grow our resources and develop creative new ideas to expand wrestling, then implement those ideas and return those resources back into the youth of the State.

Come take part in the best run tournaments in Alabama!

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.
