well I didn’t make this post because of my son. I actually don’t have that worry at all. My concern is when I go to these tournaments and see these kids dropping a ton of weight and are very dehydrated at the scale. If coaches actually followed the rule you wouldn’t have that as much. I’ve heard of some kids dropping crazy amounts of weight. You said it yourself. If a kid is jumping ten pounds or more between matches is that healthy and to your point they are a year or two or four away from being adults and on their own. With that statement they are not old enough to know better. If coaches and parents didn’t allow that they would t do it. It’s like saying hey not allowed to drink you should know better but hey your a senior go ahead. We would not allow it. If a kid can not maintain his diet then he should move up. I believe most kids cut weight because they been brain washed into believing they can not win at the weight that is healthy. It’s a pattern that goes on in this sport. Just because it’s something that has been part of the sport doesn’t mean it’s right. A healthy weight cut is a good thing. Teaches kids discipline And sacrifice but excessive weight cut should not be allowed and it still goes on with coaches knowledge and parents.
