More information Reminders from the Past Strip Tape - No wrestler will be allowed to weigh in with strip tape on their bodies. It must be removed prior to inspection and stepping on the scales Rulebook vs. Casebook — Once again, I encourage all coaches to read not only the rulebook but the casebook. The rulebook explains the rules in generalities but the casebook gives specific examples and situations on how the rule is interpreted and applied. Without reading the casebook, hard feelings and misunderstandings between officials and coaches will sooner or later arise.
I highly encourage all officials and coaches to read and study both books. Skin inspections — Last year we adopted a simple modification on how we inspect skin.
Many officials allow the athlete to rotate continuously and quickly and the result is an incomplete examination, often missing skin conditions. Please adopt this in your weigh in procedure. Zero tolerance for profanity — Remember that a wrestling match is an extension of the classroom. Officials, you must discipline inappropriate language. Coaches should not approve of it and officials should not accept it. There is no place for it in the classroom or athletic arena.
Shoe laces - Laces must be taped to the shoe or secured by a locking device. You may not just tape the laces together. Scales - To prevent inaccuracies, weigh in scales must be on a solid surface — not on carpeting or a wrestling mat. Consecutive days of competition — By Wisconsin adaptation, remember that on consecutive days of competition, or when school may have been canceled and teams were unable to practice, the maximum weight increase that is allowed is 1 pound.
It comes into play every year and often creates confusion. The only exception is the end of month growth allowance that often occurs just prior to regional competition. Forfeits — There is still much confusion state wide about the difference between a default and forfeit. A wrestler defaults a match once wrestling begins. Why, because this is when wrestling officially begins. It requires that they take a loss.
The wrestler that was scheduled to report, but did not, does not receive a loss. However, they will be ineligible to continue in an individually bracketed tournament if they did not discuss this with the meet manager and medical personnel prior to forfeiting. If the wrestler who took a forfeit wrestles again in an individually bracketed tournament he must take a loss for the forfeit.

In addition, if the forfeit occurs in the final match of an individually bracketed tournament, a loss must be assumed. The alternate 2-piece uniform has been added to increase participation for boys and girls.
In addition, a member state association experimented with a 2-piece uniform this past wrestling season and received favorable results and comments from their member schools, wrestlers, coaches and referees.
Modified what is appropriate and allowable in the designated weigh-in area. The same should be the case for an athlete who is trying to qualify for a higher weight class and is too light.
Clarified the definition of a fall. This change will allow for fewer match interruptions. Provided the clock is running, a fall shall be able to be earned.
And don't forget, a takedown can be awarded if the scoring wrestler's feet are in-bounds and touching the mat. In years past, the scoring wrestler's knees had to be in-bounds.
When the takedown is a achieved, the offensive man receives two match points.
The double-leg drop, single-leg sweep, fireman's carry, arm drag, snapdown and pancake are just a few types of takedowns. Wrestler A shoots a double leg takedown on Wrestler B. At the completion of the takedown, Wrestler B is completely out of out-of-bounds and Wrestler A's feet are in-bounds.
Would a takedown be awarded? Since the feet of Wrestler A were in-bounds, the takedown would be awarded. Keep in mind, only the defensive man can score an escape or reversal.
For the bottom man to secure an escape, he must place himself in the neutral position, causing his opponent to lose control. The defensive wrestler may also be awarded an escape going out-of-bounds if his adversary is in-bounds at the completion of the move. The official will indicate one point for the wrestler who earns an escape. The stand-up, forward or granby roll, sit-out turn-in, and sit-out turn-out are examples of escape maneuvers.
The defensive wrestler may procure a reversal by moving from the bottom position to the top position, gaining control of his opponent either on the mat or on their feet. Like the escape, a reversal can be obtained crossing the out-of-bounds line if one of the wrestlers is in-bounds.
The referee will designate two points for a reversal. The switch, side roll and peterson roll are examples of reversals. Remember, one match point is awarded for an escape and two match points are given for a reversal. The bottom man stands up and hits a standing switch, spinning behind and controlling his opponent while on their feet.
Would a reversal be awarded? The referee would award a two-point reversal because he gained control of his opponent on their feet. If it were a takedown move, however, the wrestler must be brought down to the mat for points to be scored. He may do so by causing the defensive wrestler The top wrestler can score two points by holding for two seconds the bottom wrestler in any of the above noted positions. Furthermore, if the offensive wrestler can secure a near fall for a continuous five-second period, he would then be awarded three match points for the maneuver.How to Score Wrestling Points and Win Matches @RollOutMat
Note, the official usually indicates a near-fall situation with an angular sweep of the arm, each sweep designating a second, but he will not signal any points until the near-fall hold is terminated.
In reference to the out-of-bounds line, if both shoulders are partially in-bounds or one shoulder is completely in-bounds, a near fall can be scored. The half-nelson, cradle, three-quarter nelson, and armbar series are near-fall maneuvers that can ultimately lead to a "fall.
Overview of Wrestling Rules
Wrestler A, using a half-nelson, forced Wrestler B to bridge high on his head for four seconds. Then Wrestler B turned to his stomach, only to be placed in another near-fall situation when Wrestler A cradled him. He was held there for another five seconds when the period ended.
How many near-fall points did Wrestler A receive, altogether? Wrestler A would receive a total of five match points: Of course, the winner's squad receives six team points. Now a fall occurs when both shoulders are forced to the mat for a period of two seconds in high school and only one second in college. The official mentally counts this time and indicates the fall by slapping the mat.
Normally, the offensive wrestler the man in control scores the fall. However, if the offensive grappler's shoulders are somehow placed on the mat for the required time, a fall is awarded to the defensive wrestler. Finally, in reference to the out-of-bounds line, if the shoulders are partially in-bounds or one shoulder is completely in-bounds, a fall may be called.
Wrestler A, the offensive wrestler, cradles Wrestler B and takes him to his back. However, when finishing this move, Wrestler A ends up completely out-of-bounds and only the top of Wrestler B's shoulders are in-bounds on the mat. If Wrestler B was held in the aforementioned position for the required amount of time, a fall would be called.
Since the top of the shoulders are in-bounds, wrestling would continue. Illegal maneuvers are penalized in the following manner: Note, a wrestler applying a legal hold shall not be penalized if his adversary turns it into an illegal hold. And whenever possible, an illegal move should be prevented by the official rather than penalized. Wrestler A applies an illegal full nelson to Wrestler B just prior to the final buzzer of the last period. It was Wrestler A's fourth illegal hold of the match.
The score prior to this offense was in favor of Wrestler A. What is the penalty for this offense and the outcome of the match? Wrestler A would be disqualified and Wrestler B is the winner. Furthermore, if a hold is utilized for the sole purpose of punishment alone, the referee may see fit to declare unnecessary roughness. Such perpetrations as striking, kicking, butting with the head, elbowing, and forceful tripping are examples of this infraction.
