Weight classes and divisions for wrestling at BGSG will be determined by using the Madison system. We will use a wrestlers weight, age, and experience to best group wrestlers of pools of 3-6 wrestlers. The pools will be drawn after the weigh-ins are complete on Friday night.
Wrestlers will be pooled within two years of age together and within 10% of weight (this may be slightly altered depended on participation). Also, the commissioner will be taking into consideration the amount of experience to help try to evenly determine pools.
This system is designed to get the best and most matches based off the participants at the event. Once pools are set, they will wrestle round robin to determine placement.
*during registration please include years of experience
Example of a pool:
- John Smith – age 12 – 125 lbs – 2 yrs exp
- Joe Smith- age 14 – 120 lbs – 3 yrs exp
- Jack Smith – Age 13 – 128 lbs – 2 yrs exp
- Josh Smith – Age 12 – 118 lbs – 3 yrs exp
- Age is within 2 yrs of all wrestlers
- weight is within 10%
- experience is reasonably close
