Winter Season

The Winter season must not begin before the first Monday after Thanksgiving. The Winter season must end with completion of the regular varsity season schedule, except for the varsity team or individual students completing their participation in the MIAA tournament.

84.4.8 For all team matches beginning after 3:00 p.m., wrestlers will get an additional two (2) pound allowance at the match site weigh-in. Actual weights will be recorded on all dual meet weigh-in sheets. Signatures of the coach and a school administrator (the principal or his designee) must appear in ink on the dual meet weigh-in sheets in order for the weigh-in to be validated. These dual meet weigh-in sheets will be kept by the coaches and one for each and every day of competition must be handed in at the sectional seeding meeting, or the day will not count toward certification or seeding. Morning weigh-ins are no longer permitted.

MIAA Handbook Rule 84.4.6 (pg.86)

84.4.6  To qualify at a certain weight for the MIAA Individual Sectional & State Tournaments, including Girls All-States, a wrestler must weigh-in at his certified weight class at scratch weight at least once during the season, shoulder to shoulder in front of an opposing coach. Wrestlers are not required to compete when weighing in for scratch weight.  The opposing coach must sign the weigh-in sheet verifying the scratch weight.  A 2lb allowance is granted on January 1st each year, provided the wrestler has achieved scratch weight. If a wrestler has not achieved scratch weight prior to January 1st, the wrestler must achieve scratch weight before being granted the 2lb allowance.

After January 1st, when the 2lb growth allowance is granted, all weight classes will be adjusted to the growth allowance weight (ex. 106 becomes 108). A wrestler must take this 2lb allowance if they plan on bumping up a weight, regardless of if they have achieved the scratch weight. Ex. After January 1st, if a wrestlers weighs 107.9 the wrestler cannot wrestle at 120.  If that wrestler has not achieved scratch at 106 they are only eligible for the 113 weight class in that meet.

Wrestler must also weigh-in at the base weight (scratch weight plus any rule book allowances) 50% of the regular season varsity days of competition on which the wrestler competes.  Rule book weight class allowances count toward the 50% certification.

With this rule there is a change in the language as well as a separation with-in the language to show that they are separate weigh-in procedural rules.

MIAA Handbook Rule 84.5 (pg.86)

A licensed physician, licensed athletic trainer or certified EMT must be in attendance and on duty for all wrestling matches. (It is strongly recommended that such medical coverage and an emergency transport system be in place for all games.) The medical person shall be responsible for both teams unless each team has its own medical coverage. His/her judgment will be final with regard to the condition of a player after injury. No player may continue to play against the medical person’s advice. The penalty for violation of this provision is forfeiture of the individual match.

Rules & Updates

Handbook Rule 84.4.7
MIAA Rule 84.4.7 (Page 87)
A wrestler may weigh-in for a varsity dual meet and compete at that weight or the next heavier weight. A wrestler may weigh-in for a varsity dual meet or tournament at the next weight heavier than the wrestler’s certified weight class. On or after December 25th, if a wrestler ever weighs in for a varsity dual meet or MIAA sanctioned tournament two weight classes above the wrestler’s certified weight class, the wrestler loses his certification at the lower weight class and is then certified at the next heavier weight class. For example, a wrestler who certified at 106 lb., on or after December 25th, may never, during the remaining season, weigh in at 120 lb. and keep the 106 lb. certification. The wrestler may weigh in at 113 lb. and wrestle at 120 lb. and keep the 106 lb. certification. 
Exception: Prior to December 25th, all wrestlers may weigh in two weight classes above their certified weight without losing their certification.
