Coolers, outside food or beverages or personal chairs of any kind WILL NOT be allowed in the Spokane Convention Center.
Spectators WILL NOT be allowed on the mats at any time, this includes all age groups. This has worked well in the past; it ensures good visibility for the spectators in the seats and increases the speed and efficiency of the event.
Only 2 coaches per team will be allowed at each mat. The Head Coach/Program Director for each team is responsible for requesting the wristbands needed for their team. Only 2 all-access wristbands will be allowed per team (Mats and pairing room.) All other wristbands will be for the mat area only. Each team must submit a list of registered coaches. To submit your list of coaches please EMAIL Theresa at MMWC-JCMT@live.com upon receipt of this letter, no later than March 28, 2018.
Each team is requested to bring trash bags to “police” their own areas. We really want to show our appreciation to Spokane Convention Center for allowing us to host this tournament in their facility.
Make sure that you know which scoring tables is your team’s responsibility (sent in a separate letter from the league). Please send qualified people to work the table. If you lack qualified scorers and timers it is your responsibility to correct this prior to the tournament. This is a league requirement that was voted by the coaches to ensure that those wrestling will be charted accurately and fairly.
If a child gets sick or needs to leave the tournament early they MUST check out with a JCMT Event Coordinator so the wrestler can be removed from the brackets.
Reserving of seats prior to the event will not be allowed.
When the wrestlers are announced, runners will accompany the wrestlers and carry the bout sheets to and from the scoring tables. Only the runners will be allowed to handle the bout sheets. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Bring your best behavior, sportsmanship, cleanliness and respect.
We will be hosting approximately 1500 wrestlers for a one day tournament. The sheer numbers indicate that this will be a lengthy event. Please help your parents understand what a unique opportunity this is for everyone involved, and also how fortunate they are to spend an entire day watching and supporting their wrestlers in this event. Please don’t disrespect our club by complaining about the length of the tournament.
Wrestlers are required to wear wax or mouth guard if they have dental appliances. Approved hair cover MUST be worn prior to wrestling.
