    Let's face it. Wrestling has an advantage over most sports. We never have many fans and that has been just fine with us.

    We do have youth tournaments on Saturdays. This happens after the high school season is over. The high school staffs and teams wrestle on Saturdays. They are the ones that run the youth tournaments.  That also means that the mats are being used to wrestle high school matches On Saturdays. 
     
    From my experience less than 5 percent of the wrestling community gives of themselves to hold tournaments. The crazy thing is that most people that are doing the high school stuff are the same people who show up in Sundays to do the youth stuff.

    My concern would be that during season practice rooms have more kids in them than the off season, there are usually more practices a week, and possibly kids aren't as good at taking clothes home when practices are back to back everyday. Plus I never focus too much on how well skin checks are being done at the Sunday tourneys but to my knowledge it isn't as strict as during the IHSAA season. To me it isn't a huge health risk because that is part of the sport. My bigger concern is kids contracting it more and knocking them out of important events.

    Seems to be adding another step to the weigh in since skin checks will now be post weigh in. Tournament weigh in times will be increased even more. Also how is a form fitting compression shirt more suitable for skin checks? Seems ringworm impetigo etc will be covered by the shirt a lot easier.

    So you can have ringworm under your singlet and that will never get seen?

    I think all decisions need to be had at the very last minute. They have different data points almost everyday and as more data comes out I think it should change how this is approached.

    I wish they would just leave the low weights alone. I don't care about forfeits that much. I care more about who this sport reaches. A kid that weighs around 100 pounds doesn't have much of a chance at many other sports without getting just run over. I am still not happy they moved it away from 103. The higher they raise it the more that 98 pound kid that can't gain weight gets hurt and the more that 120 something pound kid thinks he can wrestle the lightest weight.

    So is there a group of people that get paid to look at things and make changes? How does something like this come down the pipe? Honestly interested but not enough to try and look it up. My imagination says their is a group of people that gets paid by an association that has to at least make a couple changes a year in order for them to cash a check. They say "hey let's mess with weight classes again because that really shows we are doing something." Then the coaches don't come together and push back enough and little Tommy "Too Small" and Billy "Big Boy" suffer from it.
