    IWL Championships

    The Indiana Wrestling League is a 16 team, K-6th wrestling conference where teams compete in dual meets throughout the season and culminates with an individual tournament called the Indiana Wrestling League Championships the week after ISWA Team State (January 13th, 2019). This tournament has two facets; Junior Varsity and Varsity. There is a team parade for each tournament. Each team can place 2 JV wrestlers in the tournament per weight class and one Varsity wrestler per weight class. The JV tournament is unseeded while the Varsity tournament has the top 4 wrestlers seeded. Both tournaments will have a team race for points with the top 3 teams receiving trophies. There will be a face off with spotlights and music for the championship of both JV and Varsity tournaments. The champions of the varsity tournament will qualify for Indiana Smackdown which competes in the AAU National Duals at Kingsport, TN April 12-14. Thanks to all of the coaches, parents, and wrestlers that have made this the most exciting youth wrestling league in the state of Indiana! The individual awards consist of 6" medals the shape of Indiana with the IWL logo for 1st-3rd place. Wrestlers will receive a custom wooden plaque for 4th-6th place. 2019 IWL Championships Venue: Centergrove High School Doors open at 7am, JV wrestling begins at 8am Varsity wrestling begins at 1pm Indiana Wrestling League Teams: Beech Grove Centergrove Columbus North Greenfield Central Greenwood Jennings County Madison Martinsville Monrovia New Palestine Perry Meridian Seymour Shelbyville Southport Southside Warren Central Good luck to all of teams competing this Sunday!

    Weight cut

    I am going to echo this. Young men and women should not get left off of the hook for bad decisions until they are "out on their own". This is the same "let kids be kids" mentality that has been crippling generations of young men and women. Should we be raising our children to become children? That sounds crazy. But people are doing it everyday. Then when there are 40 year olds who suck at life people wonder what happened? While picking my 9 year old up from school yesterday we were a couple miles from the school and he realized that he forgot his math homework. He started crying about having to sit at silent lunch or something. He asked me to turn back and get it. Guess what? I did that Monday. First time was an accident. Second time was a mistake. Now he gets a consequence. It's that simple. Keep giving them consequences until they figure it out. Sorry for the rant. Just struck a nerve this morning. Carry on and happy Friday!

    You can email Pat Culp and Ryan Parrish about your thoughts. I am sure they can give you insight as well as listen to your thoughts as well. I personally like to have more weight classes. The ability to obtain at least two wild cards should be sufficient to fill weight classes but that is up to each individual coach. I am going to wait until after the tournament to gauge the effects of the change before putting my 'official' two cents in.

    ISWA Elementary Team State

    I'm only speculating so take it for what it is. I think that there are two reasons behind the changes. The first being that the new weights mirror the new USA Wrestling weights. The second, I believe, that the thought was because it is harder for some schools to fill a 40 lb class and a 150 lb class. I don't mind the change from 40 to 43. I am sure that they looked at the data from previous tournaments and saw that schools had a tougher time filling the 40 lb weight class and some of the upper weights. They kept 175 so that schools could fill it even with a kid weighing 131. Many schools have bumped 150 lbers to heavyweight in the past. I don't like that they took a weight from the bigger weights and lump a whole group of kids in heavyweight. I think it takes some opportunities away from some kids. If we go to team state, then I'm going to have about 2-3 kids that won't get to wrestle. In the Indiana Wrestling League, or IWL, we are keeping the weights the same and actually have a super heavyweight added to promote more wrestling opportunities for Indiana kids, forfeits be damned. The culmination of our tournament at the end of the is an league All-star team taken from the champions of each weight. Those champs will be put on a team for the Kingsport duals in Tennessee during April.
