Weight Management Information:


2016-17 Minimum Weight Management  Program 

BIA measurements (including all appeals) must be conducted on or after July 25th of this year and must be completed by January 8, 2016.  All eligible athletes or those becoming eligible at the semester break must meet this requirement.  The student’s wrestling coach or an assistant wrestling coach must be present for each wrestlers testing.  If one or more wrestlers from a school show up at a designated site without the coach being present, they will be denied the opportunity to test at that time.

 

The controlled weight loss starting date (“Alpha date”) will be Saturday, October 17th. (The first practice date is November 2nd).  A two-pound growth allowance shall be added to each weight class after December 25th. The weight classes remain the same for the purposes of the weight management program.  All member schools will be assessed a fee of $30.00 payable to the NWCA in advance.  In addition, $20.00 per student-athlete will be assessed and made payable to Encore Rehabilitation Corporation in advance to help offset their costs.  If a student athlete fails the hydration test, only a $10 charge will be assessed for a retest.  If you need to contact the NWCA for any reason, the phone number is 717-653-8009.  If you need to contact Encore for any reason, the number is 256-784-5600 ask for Bridget Henderson.

Rules Updates & Clarifications
 Artificial Limbs: The AHSAA authorizes the use of artificial limbs which, in the opinion of the Referee assigned to the match, are no more dangerous to competitors than the corresponding human limb and do not place an opponent at a disadvantage.  Eyeglasses: It is not recommended for wrestlers to wear eyeglasses during a match. However, a wrestler may wear eyeglasses during a match if that wrestler also wears protective eyewear or a face mask that covers the eyeglasses. The recommended type of eyewear to be worn is a product called RecSpecs, which must be form-fitting to the face and secured.
