Regular season tournaments are NOT required but are highly recommended. Coaches will discuss each tournament before attending with regard to degree of difficulty, and level of experience as pertains to the wrestler. The top 3 placers of each weight class usually will receive a medal or trophy from each tournament. Kids usually get to wrestle at least twice, win or lose.
The Regional Wrestling tournament is REQUIRED if your wrestler wants to participate in the Kentucky State Youth Wrestling Tournament in February.
Wrestlers will always wrestle another athlete at tournaments within 5 lbs. and 1 year of age. During practice, coaches will do their best to assign drill partners with similar guidelines.
Tournament entry fees are the responsibility of each wrestler's parent/guardian. Since tournaments are not required, they are not included in registration fee. The cost is typically $10 - $15 and is decided upon by the host organization. The fee will be collected at practice during the week prior to the tournament.
Wrestlers will be issued a team singlet for use during the current season. It is the required uniform for match participation at the tournaments. The singlet is the property of the Raider Youth Wrestling Club and must be returned at the end of the season. Please understand that not complying with returning the singlet may result in a monetary charge and loss of team privileges.
Each wrestler will weigh in before every tournament. This information is required by every organization PRIOR to the tournament date. Late registration is not allowed. If you will not be attending practice on the day of a weigh in, please notify the head coach or team mom BEFORE so that arrangements for weight can be made.
Please understand all rules will be strictly enforced to ensure the safety of each and every participant. A responsible adult must be present during practice to assume responsibility for a wrestler if the need arises.
