You have the War Hammer, the Rudis Sword and the Shield.  The last item the Gladiator needs is their helmet.  This week’s coliseum battle takes place in the jungles of Hartselle, AL.  Come out to showcase your engrained wrestling skills that you have been working on since November.  Now that the Middle School and JV seasons are over, come and join us at AYWO for the end of the School Boy season and have a chance to win the Spartan Helmet.

This week the best of the best will be awarded with custom engraved miniature gladiator helmet to the Outstanding Wrestlers and Most Valuable Wrestler in each age division. The helmets the Gladiators used protected their heads and parts of their faces. The helmets were designed to take the full force of a strike from a Gladiators opponent and not harm the wearer.  These helmets not only provided protection, but they also did not interfere with the Gladiators field of vision.

Criteria for Outstanding Wrestler – Coaches Choice (OW): Coaches vote for one wrestler per age division.

Criteria for Most Valuable wrestler / Most Pins: *Advanced brackets only* Most number of pins. Champion of their bracket.

In the event of a tie on number of pins the wrestler with the least amount of time on the mat will be selected.

Please note that wrestlers will need their AAU Card and Trackwrestling number to pre-register. Tournament Fee is paid
online. Each wrestler may compete in one weight class in two age divisions.  When pre-registering, each wrestler is required to select a skill level.  Any time there are four or more Beginners in a weight class they will have a separate bracket.  Any wrestler who fails to pre-register will NOT be able to compete in the tournament.

Registration will cost $12.00. Late registration will cost $17.00.

Normal Registration DEADLINE: Friday February 24th at 9:00 am CST
Late Registration: 9:01am to 12:00 pm CST

NOTE: Only Tot and Bantam divisions will use satellite weigh in sheet.  We encourage and fully expect our coaches and club representatives to demonstrate integrity in the weigh-in process.  Each Club will weigh in their wrestlers on Thursday night after practice or by Friday before the 12:00 pm deadline. The Wrestler’s weight will be written on his left arm by a coach or club representative. Follow the directions on the Satellite Weigh-In Page on how to copy and share the weigh-in sheet.  Be sure to share the document with AYWO, Tournament Host, and Tournament Director by the 12:00 pm deadline on Friday. The Tournament Host and Tournament Director will match the Club Weigh-in Document to the Pre-Registration Data to ensure all wrestlers are in the correct bracket. Note: Please review the AAU policy on satellite weigh-in as well as the rules pertaining to growth allowance and challenge procedures.

Age groups Midget, Novice and Schoolboy will begin 1 hour prior to start time of each age division and will end 15 min prior to start time. Each wrestler must weigh in during their appointed weigh in times.  After the weigh in is closed, any wrestler that misses the weigh in can bump up to the next division.
