  • Weighins & Medical

    Athletes must be present in a COMPETITION SINGLET and must submit to a skin disease screening prior to weigh-ins. The chief medical officer has full authority, without appeal, in determining the eligibility of an athlete to compete. See schedule for medical check times.

    In the event of injury or illness, NO contestant will be permitted to continue the competition without approval of the Chief Medical Officer, whose decision is final and not subject to appeal.

    Registration & Weigh-in Procedures:

     1.  Wrestlers must pick up their weigh-in card(s) and proceed to the weigh in line.  A current USAW card needs to be shown at check-in. If an athlete misses weight they will be placed in the next weight class.  University and FILA Cadets must weigh in for each style.

     2. Wrestlers must be in line at the beginning of weigh-ins.  Once weigh-ins start, wrestlers will no longer be able to pick up their weigh-in card and will not be able to weigh-in.

     3. Wrestlers should only have a competition singlet on when entering the weigh-in area.  They must submit to a skin disease screening prior to weigh-in.  The chief medical officer has full authority without appeal in determining the eligibility of an athlete to compete.  Parents/coaches cannot accompany the wrestlers.  They will not be allowed to carry additional clothing or anything other than the weigh-in card with them during weigh-ins.

     4. Weigh-in cards must be left in the weigh-in area.  Do NOT leave the weigh-in area with your weigh-in card.

    USA Wrestling Assn Medical Guidelines for Management of Concussion

    2013

     

     

    For USA Wrestling National Events the following steps should be followed:

     

    1. Determine if the athlete has sustained a concussion. The medical staff attending at mat side will determine if the wrestler can continue and his/her decision is final. If the medical staff attending observes that the wrestler is unconscious the match will be an injury default. If the wrestler is allowed to continue the attending medical staff will observe the match until completion and can stop the match at any point, if any observable symptoms occur. Once the match is completed the wrestler will be taken to Medical area and administered the SCAT 3 Test and observed for a minimum of 20 minutes. A Yellow Alert will be issued with date and time of incident. If the Tournament Medical Staff determine that the wrestler has not sustained a concussion a Green Alert will be issued. (For competitors under the mental age of 12 the Child SCAT will be used)

     

    1. A wrestler that is confirmed by Tournament Medical Staff has a Concussion, the wrestler will be held out of competition for a minimum of 24 hours and must be cleared by Emergency Room Physician and Tournament Medical Coordinator and be completely symptom free after exertion.

     

     

    1. Signs and symptoms that should be evaluated as part of return to play guidelines must include:
      1. Athlete questions about how they “feel” (See SCAT 3 for reference questions)
      2. Balance
      3. Memory
      4. Eye Response
      5. Concentration
      6. Delayed Recall
      7. Postural Control
      8. Response to external stimuli
      9. Failure occurs if wrestler is unable to complete task or reports increase or return of symptoms reported at initial assessment. Always include date and times of return to play assessment.

     

    1. Wrestlers that have observable unconsciousness by tournament or tour medical staff must be transported via Emergency Medical Services for evaluation unless the unconsciousness is the result of clearly being “choked out”.

     

    1. All concussion assessments requires a Yellow Alert Form be filed with Pairings with date and time.

     

    1. Concussed wrestlers that are not send to hospital for evaluation must be given a “Post Concussion Management Instruction Sheet” and be released to a responsible Adult or in case of minor age athlete be released to parent/legal guardian or “in loco Parentis” and their parent/legal guardian be notified immediately.

     

    It is recommended that any wrestler sustaining a concussion should be withheld from practice or competition for a minimum of seven days and not return to practice or competition until cleared by a medical professional and be Symptom Free after exertion. The wrestler should be followed for any change in symptoms for period of 10 days after return to practice or competition. If symptoms return the wrestler should be referred for further evaluation by a medical professional.
