NEW FOR 2017 
Junior High & Grade School District/State Weigh-Ins

Weigh-In Attempts 
To prohibit extreme weight loss, the OAC has made changes to the 2017 Season.
During Grade School and Junior High District and State weigh-ins, wrestlers will get two tries on the first scale, then two try on each additional scale in their assigned area. At Districts, the wrestler not making weight during the early weigh-in may attempt to make weight during the day of weigh-ins.
No exercise, no dehydrating, no rehydrating or leaving the scale area to come back for extra tries is permitted at the weigh-in. Those in violation of this rule will be disqualified from the tournament and potentially for the season and not refunded.

Junior High & Grade School District/State Weigh-Outs
There are weigh-outs for Division IV wrestlers at Grade School State & Junior High State on Sunday during a specified 1 hour period (prior to placement round). There will not be weigh-outs for Division I, II or III . If the wrestler does not make the weigh out during specified time the wrestler will forfeit their remaining matches. There will not be weigh-outs on Saturday. The weights outs will be an additional pound. For example, the weight is 80 lbs at Districts, State weigh-ins will be 82 lbs. Weigh-outs will be 83 lbs.

District Late Fee Added
Early Registration for districts will remain $35 entry. Early Registration is 1 week prior to the tournament start.
Late Registration for Districts will be $40. Late Registration is less than 1 week prior to the tournament start.
District Registration closes approximately 36 hours prior to tournament start time.

Grade School Technical-Fall 
Technical-Fall is declared and the match ended when a wrestler gains a 12-point advantage. For Grade School only. Junior High is 15 point advantage.

Uniform Change-Two Piece Uniform Allowed 
A Head Official Approved 2-piece wrestling uniform. Compression short sleeve t-shirt and performance (MMA) shorts are legal for competition

2016-17 Wrestling Rules Changes

At its April 6-8 meeting in Indianapolis, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee added another maneuver to the list of potentially dangerous holds in high school wrestling. 

The new potentially dangerous hold occurs when a wrestler, from a standing position, is placed in a body lock with one or both arms trapped and then is lifted and is unable to use his arm(s) to break the fall. 

“The rear standing position with a trapped arm should be considered potentially dangerous and should be monitored very closely by the referee,” said Elliot Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and student services and liaison to the Wrestling Rules Committee. “Coaches, officials and competitors should be aware of the potential for injury in this situation if the defensive wrestler is returned to the mat and has no arm available to break the fall.” 

The committee also approved a change in Rule 5-11-2 that will award penalty point(s) to the offensive wrestler in situations where the defensive wrestler exhibits inappropriate behavior in order to avoid being pinned. 

Rule 5-11-2(i) will now read, “. . . when a defensive wrestler commits a technical violation, applies an illegal hold/maneuver, commits unnecessary roughness or unsportsmanlike act during an imminent or near fall situation, the offensive wrestler shall be awarded a penalty point(s) in addition to the near fall points in accordance with (subarticles) f-h at the next stoppage.” 

“The committee felt that when the defensive wrestler uses unethical techniques to avoid being pinned, the offensive wrestler should not only be awarded the near fall or fall points, but should be awarded the appropriate penalty point(s) for that transgression at the next stoppage of the match,’ Hopkins said. 

These rules changes recommended by the Wrestling Rules Committee were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

(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)
