All coaches will have to produce a master assessment of their team and an individual weight sheet for athletes this year before any dual or tournament to 1) ensure wrestlers have been assessed and 2) so wrestlers are in the proper weight class. Wrestlers who come out late for the season must go through this testing by February 1st, 2012 in order to meet eligibility for the state tournament. If you have not passed your test by February 1st, 2012 you will not be eligible to wrestle in the 2012 State High School Tournament. This year there will be a cost per athlete in order to pay assessors for their time. Find a list of assessors in this email or go to the Arkansas Activities Association website at www.ahsaa.org.

Weight Assessment Guidelines:
There are two components to assessment: hydration testing and body fat testing. Wrestlers must be assessed before wrestling their first match of the season.. For a current list of assessors, see above.
Assessments can begin on October 26th each year and there are two components to assessing: body fat testing and hydration testing. It is important to understand each wrestler must be assessed the lowest weight they are able to wrestle at for the coming year before they wrestle their first match. Wrestlers cannot go below a weight assessed. Just like wrestlers must weigh in at 106.0 pounds or less to wrestle 106 they must also be assessed at 106.0 pounds or less in order to wrestle at that weight at some point during the year. The safest way to make sure wrestlers are assessed at the weight you want them to be throughout the year is to have them make their actual weight at the time of the assessment while passing the hydration test. Kristi Mann at email@example.com can be contacted for questions regarding assessments.
