    The only local tournament I've seen do this is the Dan Nelson tournament that Carmel hosts.  SO much better of a process to not have predetermined weight classes.  

    We used  block weights for our tournament a few weeks ago. We put ALL the kids in 4 man brackets and everyone wrestled round robins so everyone got 3 matches.  We were cleaned up and at home by 2pm.....

    They do things to facilitate more matches in a shorter period of time.   

    1.   Most tournaments don't have pre-defined weights.   You show up and weigh in and they group the brackets by closest weights to get an even distribution of wrestlers.  They don't waste time trying to seed. They don't have huge overloaded brackets that slow a tournament down and they avoid the super small brackets with 1 or 2 guys in a bracket.

     

    Good information here.  We (Indian Creek) are just starting to host tournaments and I want the tournament experience to be GREAT...

  4. 138 @ Bloomington North, not as tough as 132 @ Avon but still some SOLID wrestlers.

    5 SemiState qualifiers, 3 of which are ticket rounders

    1. Justice Cash, Bloomington North, 23-1
    2. Owen Sego, Indian Creek, 23-4
    3. Moses Hamm, Terre Haute South Vigo, 25-6

    Add in a always well coached and battle tested Bloomington South wrestler, Tyler Dixon, it's going to be a fun day in Bloomington.

    Back on topic.

    This should be a reminder to those working the table at streamed events that the mic is usually on and be aware of what you are saying throughout the day.

    We should also remind the coaches and officials that the table is mic'd, sometimes you can hear the coach/ref conversation......

  8. We (Indian Creek) host the Johnson County Elementary Duals tournament in December.  It is only for the five Johnson County schools, Indian Creek, Center Grove, Franklin, Greenwood & Whiteland. 

    We modify the eligibility rules to allow ONLY "The members of each team must attend school within the SAME school district of which the participating club is located. Exceptions: Wrestlers who are home schooled or attend a private school outside your school district may also be considered."   NO WILDCARDS

    In order to not penalize teams for not having a full line-up,  We modified the team scoring "Standard dual team scoring, with one exception. In order to not penalize teams for not having a full team lineup, if you do NOT weigh someone in at a weight class and you have to forfeit that weight class during a dual meet, the team receiving the forfeit will receive 3 team points instead of 6 team points. If you forfeit a weight class with no wrestler weighing in, you must forfeit that weight class for ALL dual meets in the tournament. If you weigh any wrestler in at a weight class and if you forfeit that weight class for any reason, the team receiving the forfeit will receive the standard 6 team points."

    This will be the 6 year of the tournament and some far it has worked wonderfully....

    I haven't been a big fan of the elementary duals because that level of competition and win at all costs attitude isn't good for the kids.

    what I like about elementary duals is that I get to "sit" in one place and watch my entire team wrestle one after another.  it does help me "see" what everyone need to work on or patterns we need to work on.   And historically, I have found that the kids who "gut" it out thru the very competitive duals season tend to do VERY well in the individual season....


  10. Just now, Y2CJ41 said:

    In an era of illegal kids, I could see a team not weighing in a weak wrestler that would get pinned just to save 3 team points each dual.

    that's a decision that their team needs to make... I like that option better than pulling that kid and replacing with a "wild card" , IMHO

    If the issues that are being stated about Elementary Duals are true, it is time we reflect on what the purpose of the event is. Obviously it has gotten way out of hand if we are paying kids or having illegal kids on teams. That kind of win at all costs atmosphere at that age is not healthy for the kids and the sport.

    We host a elementary county tournament.  we do NOT allow any wild cards.  below in the language I added to balance out the "no wild card" issues....

    REQUIREMENTS
    No all-star or academy teams allowed.  Limited to 6th grade (first year schoolboy/girl) or below wrestlers.  Each wrestler must have a USA Wrestling Card. Each team will be limited to 23 participants. Folkstyle rules w/ three one minute periods, standard overtime rules. All other high school rules and guidelines apply. Head gear and mouth pieces are required. This will be a USA Wrestling sanctioned event.

    The members of each team must attend school within the SAME school district of which the participating club is located. Exceptions: Wrestlers who are home schooled or attend a private school outside your school district may also be considered, if they live in your school district.

    FORMAT
    Standard dual team scoring, with one exception. In order to not penalize teams for not having a full team lineup, if you do NOT weigh someone in at a weight class and you have to forfeit that weight class during a dual meet, the team receiving the forfeit will receive 3 team points instead of 6 team points. If you forfeit a weight class with no wrestler weighing in, you must forfeit that weight class for ALL dual meets in the tournament. If you weigh any wrestler in at a weight class and if you forfeit that weight class for any reason, the team receiving the forfeit will receive the standard 6 team points.
