  1. Weigh-in on a Monday question

    Before the question gets asked.... Holidays (such as MLK on Jan 15) do not count either. If you wrestled on Saturday, could not practice on Sunday due to IHSAA rules, had no school on the Monday holiday (but could still practice) and had a match on Tuesday, there is no additional weight allowance
  2. Cathedral vs Perry

    Mike Reiser has a face made for radio
  3. Bumping up a weight

    You are correct.... 148.1 or more
  4. Hey Coach.... What is the date for this event?
  5. Greenwood Middle School wrestling coach and IHSAA Official Tim Welch will be hosting a meeting/clinic at Greenwood MS on Monday January 8 at 7:00PM EST. Enter Door 8 on the south side of the building. Coach Welch is going to provide a summary of the rules, and especially the new rules as it applies to the out of bounds and uniform changes. This will be very informative and beneficial to coaches, especially the MS coaches that may otherwise not have access to some of the paperwork and electronic releases that are available to high school programs. Hope to see as many of you as possible in attendance! For more information contact Tim Welch at 317-797-5971 or twelch78@live.com
  6. 2018 IHSAA deadline for 6 qualifying weigh-ins

    Sorry, but that is a question that the IHSAA has to answer (or another knowledgeable coach), as we don't get any info on that topic Chuck Barnett, IHSAA 009350
  7. Leg Turk nearfall

    I guess I’d preface it with the standard referee’s answer... “it’s usually not a black and white answer and I’d have to see the particular match/situation to comment” That being said, the question would be was he neutral and could he defend? Note: this response was typed from a cold deer stand
  8. How Difficult Is License Exam

    Open book test, Part I test, with no time limitation, and you are required to score 75% to become licensed. 100 questions. To renew every year you only need to pay your annual dues of $67. If, however, you apply for the sectional, you need to take the Part II test every year in December and score at least 90%. It is also 100 questions. Chuck Barnett IHSAA #009350
  9. Grabbing the head

    By application, that is not illegal. There are, however, several things that you could do to make it illegal
  10. Kankakee Valley HS (NW Indiana) needs 1-2 more teams for their varsity/JV duals on Saturday December 23, 2017. This is the same day as the Team State Duals. Current teams are KV, Munster and Wheeler. If interested, contact athletic director Doug Greenlee at DGREENLE@kv.12.in.us KV treats their teams and officials wonderfully... a top notch school system!

    10 teams so far. There were 12, but a couple cancelled
  16. NFHS Rule Changes

    No, not college out of bounds. At least not yet. I do think that they are moving that direction, though. Also, keep in mind that the rule changes that the NFHS passed are still subject to IHSAA adoption. They more than likely will be adopted as written, but they dont necessarily have to be. Case in point the gray shirts for refs... they were allowed by the NFHS 3-4 years before the ISHSAA approved them.
  17. NFHS Rule Changes

    According to Asst. Commissioner Faulkens, they are working on a case book explanation now. The new rule allows for an offensive and defensive fall.
  18. NFHS Rule Changes

    Shoulders or scapula of the offensive wrestler? The committee approved two changes in Rule 5-11 related to falls and near falls. In 5-11-1, the shoulders or scapula of the offensive wrestler no longer must be inbounds to earn a fall. The committee agreed that wrestling should continue if the offensive wrestler’s supporting parts remain inbounds and no body part of the defensive wrestler goes off the mat. In 5-11-5, “unless any part of the shoulders or both scapulae of the defensive wrestler is inbounds” was eliminated. If wrestling is continuing during a match, near falls and falls will be awarded/earned regardless of the out-of-bounds line.
  19. Attempting to return to the mat?

    Casebook: Page 87 Section 6 Stalling 5-H In the advantage position, it is stalling when staying behind your opponent while on your feet, making no attempt to bring the opponent to the mat
  20. Becoming a licensed IHSAA Referee

    Per my conversation with Assistant Commissioner Sandra Walter, they no longer offer probationary licenses, so you must be at least 18 years old AND out of high school.
  21. Best to Never Place

    Mike Reiser was a BEAST!

  23. Becoming a licensed IHSAA Referee

    Keep in mind that the IHSAA offers 240 scholarships per year for first year officials, so the $50 licensing fee can be waived. Each association (24 in all) get 10 scholarships each, and for each of the past 3 seasons only about 1/2 are getting used. Once mid August comes around the unused scholarships come back in to the pool and can be used by any of the associations. You can contact your local association to get on their list, and if they dont have any left you can contact me after mid August and I will hook you up. I used 27 total last year... 21 for wrestling officials. Chuck Barnett, IHSAA 009350 Secretary, Calumet Association mr_charlie_man@yahoo.com

    JD Minch on a LOT of levels
  25. Lake County Championships

    Lowell is back in, and I believe that Merrillville is sending their B Varsity. The only two Lake County teams not in are Crown Point and Hammond Morton. Wheeler is in Porter County, but has been in the past few years.
