Mat Assignments

  • Wrestlers will be assigned to a set of mats for each session.  Rounds 1-3 are one session for each age group and rounds 4 and 5 are another; finals are assigned individually by the place you are wrestling for.  Please check at weigh-ins or the WWF website ahead of time for your assigned mats.  
  • Wrestlers will be assigned bout numbers for their bouts on their chart.  Please refer to the score clocks for your mats to see what bout numbers are being wrestled on your set of mats and when they are about 5 bouts times the number of mats your group is using away from your bout number.  In addition the projection screens (near the staging area) are also used for mat assignments.  Once an assignment is shown on the display, wrestlers can proceed to the assigned mat through the floor entrance with their two respective coaches.
