2017 School Sport NL Varsity Wrestling Provincial Tournament

The 2017 School Sports Newfoundland and Labrador Varsity Wrestling Provincial Tournament on Saturday, February 18th at Crescent Collegiate in South Dildo, NL. This tournament is intended for any wrestlers in grades 7-12 from any school in the province of NL. It will also be one or our major rankings tournaments for our Canada Games Team selection for interested athletes. Crescent Collegiate School is in South Dildo, NL which is about an hour west of St John’s.

We also figured that while we have many coaches from the province togeather in one location, it would be a good time for us to have our 2017 Annual General Meeting. In our AGM we hope to quickly and efficiently inform people of our upcoming events as well as address some small housekeeping matters. We would love to see all coaches and anyone who is interested in attendance. Food and refreshments will be provided. This meeting will be held in the same place as the weigh-ins for the tournament to cut down on confusion and I have also attached a map.
As per School Sport NL regulations, all competitors must be weighed in prior to competition to ensure that they are within their respected weight classes. Attached is a tournament information sheet which has is a list of the official weight classes for this tournament. Coaches, please ensure that all athletes are within their designated weight classes. If for some reason an athlete can not physically be at the tournament weigh-in please contact us.
