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.
****The following were the estimated start times for this past year. Note: There is no way to know the estimated times that will be used for the current year, until registration has shut off and mat assignments have been determined. The estimated start times will be posted by the Thursday prior to the event.
Due to the success of the "clustering" method that we started using in 2019, we will again be running it again this year. Instead of assigning a weight to a particular mat, a "cluster of weights" are assigned to a group of mats (side by side). Since 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 last year. 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.
Friday night weight changes, flow of the mat and whether you have a BYE first round can affect the time any particular wrestler will wrestle his first match.
