Here are a few things to keep in mind for the day:
*Please have your wrestlers bring their IKWF weigh in cards. We will hand write cards for kids who don’t have them,
*Weigh ins run for 6:30 until 8 am. Parking is often more difficult as it get close to 8 o’clock, so please leave time to park. You will be able to enter the school from either the east or the west side.
*We are expecting fewer wrestlers than normal this year. We will have plenty of mats and larger mats. We will have 13 mats for around 500 wrestlers!
*Looking to start wrestling at 9:00 am. We will call both Tot and Novice levels at the start of the first round.
Thanks for participating. We are looking forward to a great event.

Other Info from Tournament Director -
The tourney will not be run on trackwrestling. Brackets will be completed on Saturday night; if there is a scratch in a 4-man, we will make it a 3-man round-robin. If an 8-man, it will be a ‘bye’. We will do our best to fill brackets, and separate teammates.
7:30a – Doors will be open, enter at gym. Brackets will be posted. Please review and advise head table of any issues ASAP.
8:45a – Coach’s meeting by gym head table
8:50a – Clear mats, call Intermediate & Novice to Bullpen
