I'm resending this information to remind everyone that the deadline to extend the wrestling season and compete for a USA district, regional, and state championship is upon us! The USA District 8 Tournament will be held at Seckman High School on Feb. 23. The district tournament is the first step in the USA State series. Wrestlers who place in the top six at the district tournament qualify to compete at the USA Region D Tournament the following weekend, March 2, in Mexico, Mo. The top four placers at regionals will qualify to compete at the USA Missouri State Championship Tournament in Kansas City on March 8-10.
I must have all entries NO LATER than 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 14. If you decide you'd like to change a weight class, let me know before Feb. 16 and I will make the change to our registration. No late registrations are allowed after Feb. 16.
Please understand that, after Feb. 16, there is a $20 fee to change a weight class. No further changes may be made to weight classes after 7 p.m., Feb. 19 (at the seeding meeting).
The individual must commit to the same weight class for the duration of the series (districts, regionals, state). In addition, do not register for districts if you do not plan on attending regionals and state if your wrestler qualifies.
To view the District 8 flier, visit www.trackwrestling.com. Click Browse, then Tournaments, then Search Events. If you type District 8 into the event name field and search, you will find it easily. When the tournament comes up, Click on More Info and Event Flyer. The flier will come up. You can also find it on our web site from the calendar (the link doesn't seem to work correctly when I copy and paste it).
Note, the USA State Series is open to wrestlers in the 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U age divisions. Six-and-under wrestlers are not eligible. So, this means no wrestlers born after 2011 may compete.
The registration envelope will be available in the board through Thursday this week, and feel free to respond with any questions.
