4A/5A Junior High State Championships

  • Voted unanimously to be held at Roy High School again in 2010 at the coaches meeting at the 2009 tournament

General Guidelines

  • These are not "rules," because there is no Board and other governing association

  • Guidelines were just agreed upon by coaches in attendance at meetings

  • Do we want to create a formal organization?

    • Liability is a key factor

      • Do coaches/programs have insurance and/or liability coverage?

      • If not, the school may say that you cannot use their facility

    • AAU Wrestling Utah and USA Wrestling-Utah can both provide this protection, although both would require membership cards for the athletes and coaches

    • Individualized insurance can handle liability for $3$6 per athlete, but this does not provide secondary insurance for the athlete and athlete's family

      • AAU Wrestling Utah and USA Wrestling-Utah provide secondary insurance coverage

        • AAU Wrestling Utah for $14 or $16 per card

        • USA Wrestling-Utah for $35 per card

    • Different schools and school districts treat wrestling differently

      • Setting up by-laws and a governing organization can make things established, so it's not controlled by the dominant teams at that time in the state

      • Sanctioning tournaments through the governing body would create standardization

      • Participating in non-sanctioned tournaments would undermine the governing body

    • Enforcing rules

      • Organizing would help them be enforced equally

      • Would help people know what to expect at each tournament in terms of weight classes, age divisions, etc.

    • We've outgrown the "gentleman's agreement" structure that has been in place

    • Originally thought that this would be a 4A/5A organization, due to distance in travel, etc., but there is enough cross-participation that it was determined that it should be a statewide organization

  • Insurance

    • Want to look at AAU Wrestling Utah, Individualized Policies and USA Wrestling-Utah

    • Want to look at the options available with each

    • Address the organization, the insurance and the structure

  • Committee Formed

    • Aimed at creating a structure for the organization

    • Members nominated

      • Sonn Berrett

      • Benji Carrier

      • Brent Hubbard

      • Bill Kilpack

      • Craig LaMont

      • Ryan Levin

      • Johnny Loveless

      • Dusty Lowe

      • Bruam Sidwell

      • Michael Stephenson

      • John Webb

      • David Whitehead
