Custom medals for top 6 place winners plus special awards for champions. Triple Crown awards for all those that win all 3 styles (must have 5 kids in each bracket to win Triple Crown award) and Outstanding Wrestler awards for each division and style.

Bracketing

We may have situations where we create a bracket using actual weights in the event that a traditional bracket cannot be created.  In the event that multiple weight classes need to be combined, the Madison bracketing format will be used.

Weigh ins

  • See the schedule to find out weigh in times 

Tournament Entry

$40 per style entry fee - no onsite registration. We do not charge to change weights so sign up early as the tournament does have a cap.

Officials

We will be selecting 22 officials for this event to officiate for the 3 days. We will have some of the best officials in the country!

Double Bracketing

You may be able to double bracket up a division or weight class using same weigh in weight.  Double bracketing can only be done at the head table after weigh ins and after the schedule of sessions has been released. No double bracketing is available for any situation where the double bracketing would have the athlete competing inside of the same session.  The speed of the bouts within sessions does not allow an athlete to be in two different brackets during the same session.

Table Help

We are looking for table help each day. The pay is $100 per table and 2 people are required per table. If you are interested in running tables please reach out to Raider Lofthouse via email at Raiderlofthouse@gmail.com.
