The Winter season must not begin before the first Monday after Thanksgiving. The Winter season must end with completion of the regular varsity season schedule, except for the varsity team or individual students completing their participation in the MIAA tournament.

MIAA Handbook Rule 84.4.6 (pg.85) 

84.4.6 To qualify at a certain weight for the MIAA Individual Sectional & State Tournaments, a wrestler must weigh-in at his certified weight class at scratch weight at least once during the season, shoulder to shoulder in front of an opposing coach. The opposing coach must sign the weigh-in sheet verifying the scratch weight. A 2lb allowance is granted on January 1st each year, provided the wrestler has achieved scratch weight. If a wrestler has not achieved scratch weight prior to January 1st, the wrestler must achieve scratch weight before being granted the 2lb allowance.

After January 1st, when the 2lb growth allowance is granted, all weight classes will be adjusted to the growth allowance weight (ex. 106 becomes 108). A wrestler must take this 2lb allowance if they plan on bumping up a weight, regardless of if they have achieved the scratch weight.Ex. After January 1st, if a wrestlers weighs 107.9 the wrestler cannot wrestle at 120. If that wrestler has not achieved scratch at 106 they are only eligible for the 113 weight class in that meet.

Wrestler must also weigh-in at the base weight (scratch weight plus any rule book allowances) 60% of the regular season varsity days of competition on which the wrestler competes. Rule book weight class allowances count toward the 60% certification.

With this rule there is a change in the language as well as a separation with-in the language to show that they are separate weigh-in procedural rules.


MIAA Handbook Rule 84.5 (pg.86)

A licensed physician, licensed athletic trainer or certified EMT must be in attendance and on duty for all wrestling matches. (It is strongly recommended that such medical coverage and an emergency transport system be in place for all games.) The medical person shall be responsible for both teams unless each team has its own medical coverage. His/her judgment will be final with regard to the condition of a player after injury. No player may continue to play against the medical person's advice. The penalty for violation of this provision is forfeiture of the individual match.

MIAA Rule 84.4.7 (Page 85)
A wrestler may weigh-in for a varsity dual meet and compete at that weight or the next heavier weight. A wrestler may weigh-in for a varsity dual meet or tournament at the next weight heavier than the wrestler's certified weight class. On or after December 25th, if a wrestler ever weighs in for a varsity dual meet or MIAA sanctioned tournament two weight classes above the wrestler's certified weight class, the wrestler loses his certification at the lower weight class and is then certified at the next heavier weight class. For example, a wrestler who certified at 106 lb., on or after December 25th, may never, during the remaining season, weigh in at 120 lb. and keep the 106 lb. certification. The wrestler may weigh in at 113 lb. and wrestle at 120 lb. and keep the 106 lb. certification.

Exception: Prior to December 25th, all wrestlers may weigh in two weight classes above their certified weight without losing their certification.

MIAA Handbook Rule 84.2 (pg.83) 

Member schools shall not schedule or compete on more than 20 days of competition. Five matches is the maximum amount that a student may compete on any given day, exclusive of MIAA sponsored tournaments (see 84.3.3).

For scoring purposes, refer to NFHS Wrestling Case Book 1.4.3 Situation A: In a multiple school tournament being conducted in one day, there are: (a) eight schools invited, and it is announced four places will be scored; or (b) 16 teams are invited, and it is announced six placed will be scored.

RULING: Wrestlers are limited to no more than five matches during a day. Matches are those for which the time limit is specified by rule and are six minutes in length for consolation. In (a), it would be possible for a school to conduct an eight-team tournament, wrestling back to four places, because this would consist of a maximum of four matches for any wrestler. In (b), if only the losers of the quarterfinal bracket go to the wrestle-back it could be completed in only fives matches per day. If, however, the first-round losers enter the wrestle-back, there is a possibility that some wrestlers would be involved in six matches. This would not be allowed and would be in violation of Rule 1-4-3 which states that no wrestler shall represent the school in more than five matches in any one day. Therefor some consolation finals could not be wrestled. If one wrestler had wrestled in four matches and the other wrestler in fives matches, then the wrestler in four matches would be the winner by forfeit. If it was the match for third place and both wrestlers had been in five matches, then they would both receive points for fourth place. There could be no third-place finisher.

*Forfeits do NOT count as matches.

Page 6 of the MIAA Wrestling Format states...

d. Skin checks will take place conducted by the head referee and on-site trainer before any wrestler is permitted to go to the scales. (Wrestlers with skin conditions must present a doctor’s note using ONLY the MIAA Medical Release Form (pg. 17) or they will not be permitted to enter the tournament.
