      USA Wrestling has set brackets for each weight. Tournaments in this league are typically much bigger and to put through everybody we have smaller weight brackets determined the morning of the matches. Some brackets will only be one pound difference, while others could go up to a 5 lbs difference between lightest and heaviest wrestlers in an 8 man bracket

      We are seeing a large increase in girls that would like to learn the sport of wrestling. Up until this year they have had to compete against the boys due to lack of numbers. However, the coaches in the league have seen a need to hold a few tournaments just for the girls. To encourage the opportunity, we have 4 tournaments where the host will have one dedicate mat for a girls tournament. These are noted on the website in the tournament page and all girls that are registered with a club in the league are invited to participate. There is also a girls only tournament in Mattawa on April 14th.

      2018 is a test year for having separate female tournaments.

        So if our club is registered, but not at a tournament with girls mats, we are able to go to where they will have girl mats?

        In an effort to increase girls interest in the sport of wrestling, we have designated one tournament each week that will do their best to have all girl brackets. Any Girls registered with WLGWL can attend these tournaments regardless of where their club is scheduled to wrestle.

    With all the school closures and no practices shouldn’t the season be pushed back at least 1 week. Some of these kids have had almost no practices. Especially the younger age groups. Isnt their a required amount of practices?

      Preparation is always a safety concern that each club should evaluate, However, not all clubs across Washington have been affective by the weather so to push out all the tournaments would not be advantageous to the league. If coaches feel their wrestlers are not prepared for a tournament I would suggest that they skip the first tournament in order to properly prepare.
