Wrestling Update December 13th, 2017
Before each tournament, the tournament Head Official will meet with the coaches to go over these important rules:
- Two coaches only in each corner
- Coaches cannot directly communicate with the on-mat referee before, during, and immediately after their matches ( exception: a potential injury )
- A coach may raise his/her arm and ask to approach (protest) the mat chairman only once during a match when the referee stops the match
- This coach may only question that one call/situation of that protest, then the officiating team with the HO will decide and that will be final
- When a coach talks in the direction of the referee or the mat chairman and makes comments on officiating, he/she will be warned, then yellow carded, then red carded.
Clarity on Some Rules and Interpretations for High School Wrestling to be implemented immediately.
- Twenty minutes is the minimum rest time between matches for competitors at tournaments.
- Technical superiority (and the automatic ending of the bout) is a ten-point spread between opponents.
- In case of a tie at the end of the bout, the match shall be decided on the following criteria and in this order:
(a) Points Quality: 4, 2, 1. i.e. if a competitor has a four-point score in a 4-4 bout, but his/her opponent has only two 2-point scores, the former will be declared the winner.
(b) Fewest cautions. i.e. if a bout is tied 4-4 and all the point scoring is equal (say 2 two-point scores again), then the first criteria to break the tie is the wrestler with the fewest cautions.
(c) Last points. i.e. if Points Quality and Cautions are equal in a bout, then the last points scored shall determine the winner.
- Gut-Wrench. The initiator of the gut-wrench must clearly bridge off his/her shoulders during the execution of this hold, or his/her opponent will be awarded one point. The initiator will then be awarded two points.
- Re-starts in the par-terre position.
(a) If a wrestler is temporarily injured and/or incapacitated and is par-terre when the referee stops the match, then the match shall be re-started with the previously injured/incapacitated wrestler in the “referee’s position” (on all fours) par-terre.
(b) The same shall hold true if the referee deems that a par-terre wrestler is attempting to avoid a hold by visibly fleeing off the mat while in the par-terre position. To be confirmed by the Mat Judge and/or Chair.
- Activity Periods. Before two minutes are elapsed in a round with no score, the referee must issue a verbal warning as the match continues. If there is still no action, the referee (with confirmation) must stop the match and warn the most passive wrestler: “Stop! Attention! Action!” If there is still no score, and again before two minutes are elapsed, the referee (again, with confirmation) will stop the match and put the most passive wrestler on the 30-second score clock. That wrestler now has 30 seconds to score or his/her opponent will be awarded a single point. There can, of course, be multiple “Activity Periods” in any given round.
7. At the end of the 30 seconds if there is no scoring , that match must NOT BE STOPPED ! The match will continue , the referee will award and announce the 1 point to the wrestler not on the 30 second clock. There will be no caution.
