Minutes

  • Welcome. We had outstanding attendance!

  • Review of past policies for regular season

  • Do we want any new policies or changes to current policies for the regular season?

    • We added +250 to our regular season weights.

  • The costs and other rules are still in force.

  • How do we increase the amount of matches and still divide weights by ability? With going to eight-man brackets,
    we have many brackets that have byes. That only gives two or three matches for an all day tournament.

  • With great discussion. We decided a couple things to increase matches. The use of Advanced, Intermediate,
    Beginner is good. . . but the intermediate is not necessarily a dedicated bracket. If you use intermediate, use that to fill up the advanced bracket. One good way of filling the advanced bracket is to use a this hierarchy:

    • All advanced, 8th Int, 9th Beg, 7th int, 8th beg, 6th int. 7th beg, 5th int, 6th beg, 5th beg. Putting 5 wrestlers in one 8 man bracket is doing a disservice to the boys.

    • The use of freestyle and round robin bracketing will increase the matches.

  • Tournament are going more to K9 to make money, for those tournaments that will be wrestling 90 second rounds, does the fee go to $12?

    • On the cost will stay at $10.

  • Elect or appoint a Details Committee?

    • Must be on e-mail. This is a smaller committee to help make decisions during the year.

    • This group is a self-appointed rule making body. They will speak for the coaches until the next general committee meeting.

    • The 1A-3A committee is:

      • Daniel Billoch, Cedar City

      • Eric Searle, Millard

      • Hadley Christensen, Juab

      • Kent Goodwin, Dixie

      • Dave Porter, Snow Canyon

      • Andy Unsicker, Richfield

    • The 4A-5A is:

      • Johnny Loveless, Payson

      • Craig LaMont, Springville

      • John Coxson, Orem

      • John Allan, Spanish Fork

      • Cole Kelly, Orem

      • Chris Hardy, Box Elder

      • Bill Kilpack, Jordan

      • Steve Wardleigh, Fremont

  • Election of chairman of general committee

    • Two-year term. Keeps the schedule, helps implement policy.

    • John Allan will hold this for another two years.

  • Source of Information

    • The role of http://www.utahwrestling.org/

    • Bill Kilpack attended the meeting. He will keep the schedule and publish results. It is vital that the tournament hosts get him the results to at least the
      advanced brackets results. He will gladly publish those results. Also, he is calendaring the K5 tournaments too. Lets support him. Tournament directors, get him a flier early.

  • State Location and Date

    • There was a proposal for a North and South state division. Also a proposal for the Northern 1A-3A schools that are in the North (like Bear River and Logan) to go to the 4A-5A state tournament. We did not adopt those ideas.

    • 1A-3A

      • St. George will host the 1A-3A state tournament. It will be the last weekend in Jan. 06. They will have a two day tournament with Friday morning regional weight ins.  Vance Casperson at Pine View will be the tournament director. They have negotiated discounted hotels, prices
        for winners. They hope to get done early Saturday.

    • 4A-5A

      • Orem will host at UVSC. Cole Kelly will be the tournament director with working with Chris Brown and Cody Sanderson. John Allan, Johnny Loveless and Craig LaMont will be involved too. Their tournament will be the first weekend in Feb, one week after 1A-3A (State drill is the
        same week as 1A-3A and 1A-3A have week end high school regional tournaments). There will have regional weigh ins on Friday, then pairing that night and a staggered start time on Saturday. Boys will see a web site to see what time they have to first come for Saturday.

    • Both states agreed to the two separate divisions, and Middle school (5-7) and Jr. high (7-9). 1A-3A worked some things out with team scoring, but I did not catch what is was.

    • For the weights both divisions fiddled with the weights at the bottom. Here is what the basic weights are and we will work to finalize what was decided:
      Middle: 65, 70, 73, 76, 80, 83, 86, 90, 93, 96, 100, 105, 112, 119, 125, 135, 145, 165, 180, 210, 210+

    • 1A-3A added 60. 4A-5A added 63, 66.

    • Jr. High division: 75, 80, 85, 90, 93 ,96, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 128, 132, 145, 155, 170, 190, 210, 250. 250+

    • 1A-3A wanted to add a 70. 4A-5A was questionable on eliminating 75.

  • Rules for Utah Jr. High Wrestling
