Non-ICWL Coaches: Please email your wrestlers' verified weights to GNWCTitans@gmail.com by Friday, 12/21. For late registrants, please email the coach-verified weight upon registration.

 

RANDOM WEIGHT CHECKS:

Wrestlers will be pulled at random to have their weight checked (wearing just a singlet, no less) with a PIAA referee.  All wrestlers must be within 3lbs of the verified weight that was submitted. If a wrestler is found to be above the 3lb allowance, all wrestlers from that team will be required to weigh-in the day of the tournament and brackets will be adjusted accordingly. That team and/or coach will lose their ability to host a remote weigh in for any future GNWC events.
