Dear Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches,


I hope this email finds all of your familiesí safe as we navigate the 2020-21 school year.  The purpose of this email is to update our coaches on the newest developments for the upcoming season, as well as, inform you about a few important dates for the 2020-21 wrestling season.


As always, if you should have questions, please reach out to your district representatives or send us your questions via the website (ohswca.org).


1.) The most important issue is our Return to Mat Plan for the season.  Our Restart Committee, led by Shawn Andrews, has been meeting regularly with Tyler Brooks and the rest of the group which includes several different stakeholders.  Per Tylerís email (September 16th), no changes have been made. However, wrestling specific concerns are still being reviewed by the Governorís Office.


We are committed to having a season and we will do whatever it takes to make that happen.  Please be patient as we watch the fall sport seasons closely and tweak our plan.


2.) We were saddened to hear about the cancellation of the OHSAA State Team Championships.  This change was made by the OHSAA and was purely a financial decision. Based on that decision, the OHSWCA has met and is planning to host the event in some capacity for the 20-21 wrestling season.  We are doing research and putting together a plan for the event, however, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered by the Ohio Department of Health, the Governorís Office, and the OHSAA.  As those meetings continue, we will keep you posted.


Here are our initial thoughts as we begin the planning process:


We would use the previous model when our association started the event over a decade ago.  We are compiling data from the 2019-20 District Tournaments (see example attached from the Central District) and would like to host District events with the top 2, 4, or 8 teams depending upon the recommendation of the state leadership.  These teams would be based on their returning qualifiers from last year.  We realize it is not a perfect system, but it is a realistic goal based on the limitations and logistics.  Each district would have one representative advance to the state final four which would be held in different locations based on availability (Division I, II, and III).


We will be soliciting schools to see if they can host these district and state events.  Weíve been in contact with the State Officials Association and they are behind the decision to help ďsaveĒ the event.  


Please stay tuned for more information via email, Twitter @ohswca, and our website moving forward.


3.) We are also excited to offer our Ohio Wrestling Coaches Convention on Saturday, October 24-Sunday, October 25.  This will be in conjunction with the NWCA and be a virtual convention.  Weíve kept the cost down ($50 which includes membership) and we are excited to offer over 40 videos from the NWCA library and several videos (live and pre-recorded) for our Ohio Coaches.  We intend to have at least one live session per day and will offer all coaches access to these videos for 3 months after the convention.  


We hope to have the online link live one month prior to the event (September 28th is our target).


4.) We are still planning on hosting the Girls State Tournament on February 20-21, 2021 at Hilliard Davidson High School.  


5.) Finally, we will be releasing the 2020 Coach of the Year winners via our website and Twitter account throughout the next week.


Thanks again for your continued support and we look forward to another great season in Ohio Wrestling.


The OHSWCA Executive Committee

Bad news!


Re:       Future of the Dual Team Wrestling Tournament

 In an administratorís update that was emailed to all schools this afternoon, it was announced that the OHSAA Dual Team Wrestling Tournament would be suspended for the 2020-21 school year.

It saddens me to relay this information to the wrestling community.  We all know that the dual team tournament provides a unique team environment and atmosphere for our sport that the individual tournament simply cannot.  I donít know what the future holds for the dual team tournament, if and when it could be resumed, or when that determination would be made.  I just wanted to pass this information along to you as quickly as possible for planning purposes.


I hope to provide an update to all wrestling schools by the end of next week as we set our eyes on the 20-21 wrestling season and how it fits within the current Ohio Department of Healthís (ODH) orders.

(Ohio Valley Athletic ex Coach) The purpose of this web site is to promote O.V.A.C. wrestling and the individuals that make it all possible. I don't proclaim to know everything about the O.V.A.C.'s or wrestling, but I did coach in the O.V.A.C.'s for 8 years so I do have some knowledge of the sport, coaches and the wrestlers (2002). I have also run www.OVAeCwrestling.com for the past 10 years.(2016)
