WEIGH INS: Weigh ins are scheduled for Friday, April 23, 2021, from 4:00-8:00 pm, at the Highlands Sports Complex, in Triadelphia, WV. See information below on how to print off your weigh in card. If you do not print your card off, or forget to bring it, just stand in the weigh in line and pick up a new one, just before entering the weigh in area.
****The following are the estimated start times for 2019. Note: There is no way to know the estimated times that will be used for 2021, until registration has shut off and mat assignments have been determined. The 2021 estimated start times will be posted by Thursday, April 22, 2021.
Due to the success of the "clustering" method that we employed in 2019, we will again be running it for 2021. Instead of assigning a weight to a particular mat, a "cluster of weights" are assigned to a group of mats (side by side). In 2019, this allowed for us to be able to get folks in and out quicker. In fact, most weights were completed in less than 3 hours.
However, we will start the younger Age Groups off in the first two session, so that all Bantam, Midget, Junior and first two Girl's Divisions wrestlers should be done prior to 4:30 pm. The Elite and Open Divisions will also run in the morning waves. Schoolboy and Cadet wrestling will run anywhere from 2:30-10 pm.
Again, once final numbers are known, we will post that information here (Thursday before the event). Below you can see the Schedule that was used in 2019. Most every weight class was completed in 3 hours, or less.
We have done our best to try to estimate the start times for each weight. In doing so, we have estimated the time to make sure that the next weight arrives prior to their actual starting time. Please check your bracket to see the starting number in your weight class and then monitor the bout number on the scoreboard. We average close to 14 bouts per hour, so that should give you a good time estimate of your match times.
weight changes, flow of the mat and whether you have a BYE first round

***Wrestling is scheduled to take place in the Indoor Football Field. There is some seating on the field level and additional standing room on an above balcony. Due to COVID policies, attendance may be limited and masks required of all attendees (other than those wrestling or on-deck). Chairs may be brought in, but may not be placed on the football field. We may allow some on field seating, but you would need to bring a blanket to sit on. Also, no food or drink, other than water, is allowed on the indoor football field.
***Note: An exact time schedule cannot be given, as it is impossible for us to know the numbers we will end up with and the start time for each weight or cluster.
Also, beginning in 2019, we are planning on running weights in clusters. Clustered groups should finish, in their given time slot, prior to the next group of weights beginning. A MANDATORY 15 rest time will be given to wrestlers.
This has also proved to eliminate most all of the congestion at the awards area.
Estimated start times will be posted on our website and during weigh ins.
