Region & Club/Team Competition


FUTURE DATES: April 22, 2017; April 21, 2018; April 27,2019


***TofC will continue to be a one day event. We will also continue the staggering of the weight classes during the day.

***TofC will remain an individual event. However, there will be a greater emphasis placed on the Team/Club Competition aspect (see below for more details), as well as the Region (starting in 2017) concept. While entering as a team will allow wrestlers to bypass other means of qualification, those entering as individuals will still need to meet some level of qualification.

***Along with the major team awards we are working on, individual awards will still be given out to the top 8 (top 6 in the Open Division) place finishers in each weight class.

***We are hopeful of being able to run a paperless event starting in 2017. However, neither Track or Flo Wrestling has a program designed to run our event the way we need. We are currently talking to both organizations, and will decide upon the best option for our event.

***We will still provide for mats for those wrestlers who go two and out, so that they can receive some additional matches, if they so choose.

REGION COMPETITION

As part of our silver anniversary, we are introducing a brand new twist to the event - one which will directly benefit the wrestling community. We have divided the United States into Regions, based on past Ohio TofC attendance, performance and potential. Some of these Regions will consists of multiple states working together, others will consist of individual states and still others will consist of just one geographical area of a state.
The Region(s) that do the best, will receive cash grants, to benefit wrestling in the area they represent. You will not need to designate your point getters. Points, based on on a Region’s top 25 placers, will determine the overall winner. Cash grants will be given to the top five Areas, with the winning Region will receive $2500, second place $1500, third place $1000 and fourth and fifth place $500 each.

At the present time, we are looking for Regional Chairmen, to help spread the word, in their Region, about the event. Information will be sent to these Chairmen to distribute. Other than encouraging wrestlers to attend, and distributing the information, they will not have to do anything else. Note: Larger Regions may have more than one Chairman and each Chairman may choose to have as many additional Chairmen working with him.

All wrestlers will need to register on their own. When registering, they will designate their Region. ALL wrestlers entered from your Region will be potential scorers for you (ie: some you may not have even contacted may sign up on their own).
While we have had qualifying events for the TofC, and will continue to do so, we also have a number of exemptions, whereby any “decent’ wrestler would be able to compete. Still, we will add the designation of “Wildcard Entry” to the list, which they may select, if they don’t see any other qualification that applies to them. All we ask from you guys is to let the wrestlers know that this event is a tough tournament and participants should have some decent experience, prior to entering.

Note: We will continue to have an Open Division (post high school wrestlers). The Open Division is a completely separate event and their place finishers will not count towards a Region’s overall score.

So, in essence, we will have three events that wrestlers can be a part of:

1. Individual Competition (awards will be given to the top 8 place finishers, top 6 in Open Division)
2. Some of you may enter your a School or Club Team, in an attempt to win various larger awards (see below).
3. Region Competition-All wrestlers will be part of a team, based on where they reside.

Here are the Regions we are looking for Representatives for and the areas each encompass. If no names are listed, and you are interested in the position, please contact us at bdbop@aol.com

***Dependent upon whether we renew our arrangement with Flo Wrestling, all Region Chairmen will be entered into a drawing, to win a free Flo Pro membership.


TEAM & CLUB COMPETITION

While still an Individual Event, wrestlers will be able to declare the team/club they represent. Also, any wrestler that is entering as a member of a participating club or team, does not have to meet any other qualification standards. Wrestlers entering the event as Unattached (not representing a participating club, or team, must still meet qualification standards - see below)

These clubs/teams will be divided into three categories, somewhat based on type and size, but also on the award they wish to vie for. Based on their individual place finish, wrestlers will then score points and the top three clubs/teams in each division will win major prizes.

Basically, this is how it will work. A Coach (or Team Designee) will go to our site (www.ohiotofc.com) and sign up his Team/Club. There will be a fee to register as a Club or Team, ranging from $50-100. Once registered, the Coach/Designee will be given a code. This individual can then proceed to enroll each of the athletes to his roster, or provide his wrestlers with the code, for when they sign up. The Coach will also have the ability to easily send out an e-mail, to all his wrestlers and parents, with this code in it.

As the wrestlers enroll, they will select their Club/Team, during the registration process. If their Coach has yet to set up his account, wrestlers will be able to log back in, once the account has been set up, to indicate their selection. Coaches (or the Team Designee) will also be able to monitor who has signed up, paid and what weight class they are at.

While the family discount for wrestlers is still in effect, if one individual enrolls all the individuals for their club/team, AND pays for them in one payment, then they will also receive one additional FREE entry for each 10 paid individuals (a $70 savings).

***Open Division wrestlers (those who are no longer in High School), will count towards the total number of wrestlers, but the Open Division will not earn points towards the Club/Team Competition. HOWEVER, we will have a separate Team Competition for the Open Division, but there will be no major awards given. Open Division Teams will need to submit a roster, to the head table, prior to wrestling starting on Saturday morning. The roster needs to include: Team Name, Contact Name, Contact Address, Phone and E-Mail) and a list of the team's wrestlers and their weight class.

Coaches will NOT have to designate their point scorers. The top X number of place finishers (see below) will score points for their club/team. Point scorers can be spread throughout all 90 of the age/weight categories.

CLUB & TEAM AWARDS

In 2016, we added the Club & Team Competition, also based on each individual’s place finish. However, there seemed to be a lot of confusion, as to what Division a Club/Team should enter.

We have revamped things for this year and have dropped all the Club/Team designations. Instead, you will enter the Division you wish, in an attempt to try to win the Award associated with that particular Division.

As is the case with all Clubs/Team entering, all wrestlers designated a member of that group must practice, with said group, on a regular basis. Rosters consisting of obvious “all-star” recruited teams will not be allowed. You do not need to designate who your point scorers are. The top “X” number, based on Division you enter, may earn points.

Division 1 - (For the most part, large Club Teams)
Total number of possible point scorers: 25
Cost to enter this Division: $100 ($50 if paid by February 1)
Award: $1500 gift certificate to 3-Time Gear

Division 2 - (For the most part Large School Teams, or Smaller Area Clubs)
Total number of possible point scorers: 18
Cost to enter this Division: $80 ($40 if paid by February 1)
Award: $1000 gift certificate to our Apparel Vendor

Division 3 - (For the most part Smaller School Teams)
Total number of possible point scorers: 10
Cost to enter this Division: $50 ($25 if paid by February 1)
Award: $500 gift certificate to our Equipment Vendor

All teams that do not win win be placed into a drawing for the chance to win a $250 gift certificate to Defense Soap (3 awards given - one per Division).



There should also be NO need for any club/team, in Division I-IV to try to "recruit" wrestlers who are not from their school district, or active participants of their club (active means practicing with the club on a regular basis and does not refer to having represented the team at events) as coaches have 90 age/weight categories to draw their wrestlers from.

Clubs/Teams found to be in violation of "recruiting" outside wrestlers will not be eligible for the Club/Team awards. Wrestlers may represent, and earn points, for one team/club only.

CLUB & TEAM AWARDS
Note: We are working at adding even more possible awards to the ones listed below. Only one of each type of award will be given in each Division. The First Place team will select their award, then the second and then the third.

Points will be earned as follows:
1st Place: 20 points
2nd Place: 16 points
3rd Place: 12 points
4th Place: 9 points
5th Place: 7 points
6th Place: 5 points
7th Place: 3 points
8th Place: 1 point

In the event of a tie, the club/team with the most 1st placer finishers will take first. If still tied, then we will go to most 2nd place finishers and so on. If they are still tied after going thru all the places, the team that entered the most wrestlers will receive the first place award. If still tied, then duplicate awards will be given.

Club & Team Discount Rates

In order to receive a group discount, for a Club/Team, all entries must be entered as a Group Entry (under one user name/password) and payment must be done with one transaction. The individual in charge of the group will be able to monitor each wrestler's status, make any weight changes necessary and print each individual's weigh in card.

As of December 1, 2015, all Clubs/Teams that are entering the Club/Team Competition, and are registered via the above, will receive one free entry for each 10 paid entries. This free entry will appear at the time of checkout and your invoice will be adjusted as such.

***No discounts will be applied to additional family members, as they are already at the rate of $50, which includes the $5, per entry, event insurance. However, the additional family members will be used in determining the total number of group members. The same applies to wrestlers in the Open Division.
