56th ANNUAL BRECKSVILLE INVITATIONAL HOLIDAY WRESTLING TOURNAMENT
December 29-30, 2016
November 27, 2016
Greetings from the Brecksville
Wrestling Tournament Committee. There
are four important documents attached to this email. Item
# 3 below requires your immediate attention.
Weigh-In Procedure (1 sheet) is extremely important for your
review. There will be two weigh-ins (WI’s)
in the morning, one on each day of the tournament. Each WI will be conducted in the same manner,
by weight class, in weight class order. There will be no weight cutting during the WI’s. A weight check will be available for one hour
before the official start of WI’s. Each
day’s WI will be preceded by a Skin Check (SC).
The SC on the second day is required of all 2-day tournaments. In order to start the tournament on time we
need your help in order to conduct an efficient WI. Please have all wrestlers at the school Main
Gymnasium before the 8 AM start of WI’s on both days.
Tournament Timetable (1 sheet) lists important events with their
due dates. It also lists the wrestling
times for the three sessions.
Tournament Program Book Coaches and Wrestlers Biographical Information Sheet
(1 sheet). Each year we publish a
tournament Program Book in which we want to list your wrestlers and their past Varsity accomplishments. We do not want Jr. Varsity data. For this purpose we have developed a single
sheet blank form that is attached to this email. It must be downloaded, saved, completed, and
returned to Nick Dimitris via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
by Wednesday, DEC 7, 2016. This is early
into your season but remember we are looking for info from prior years,
not this year’s data. The early due date is necessary to assemble and
forward the data to our tournament book printer.
We hope you find the form easy to use. Please fill in the wrestlers’, coaches’, and
school data in the appropriate boxes.
List your anticipated tournament roster.
Please note this roster is not necessarily your final roster and may
be changed later, up to and including during weigh-ins. The intent of this form is to provide
biographical data for your anticipated roster of wrestlers for inclusion in our
tournament Program Book.
We request that you give this matter the
attention it deserves so that our wrestlers can get the recognition they
deserve for all of their hard work and past accomplishments. This section in our Program Book is a fan,
coach, and wrestler favorite.
Again, please email
the completed Wrestlers’ Biographical data sheet to Nick Dimitris at email@example.com, by Wednesday DEC 7,
2016. Please use an IBM style PC employing MS Excel software. An Apple Mac computer will present problems
for me. Thanks.
Seeding Criteria (1 sheet) lists the priority sequence of seeding
criteria used at Brecksville.
5. Again this year we will be using TrackWrestling software to
manage the event. Consequently Team Registration and Seeding
will be done Online via the TrackWrestling web site. Administering the program will be two
seasoned TrackWrestling experts, Rob Merhar and Gary Kanaga. One of them will contact you directly via
email to describe the process and provide instructions on the procedure. There will be no other way to register and
seed your team. The 2016 Team Entry
Window will open at 8 am on Sunday 12/11/16 and close precisely at 4 PM on Tuesday 12/27/16. Once you have entered your team you may make
changes to your roster as many times as you wish until 4 PM Tuesday 12/27/16.
After the close of the
Entry Window there will be opportunities to make any last minute roster changes
via email, or at the 7:30 PM mandatory coaches’ meeting on Wednesday 12/28/16,
or during weigh-ins. For any roster
changes after the Entry Window has closed please contact Rob Merhar (Primary
Contact) at (firstname.lastname@example.org)

changes. Please do not contact or email

yourself with the TrackWrestling process and register your team early. Remember, you can make changes to your team
registration as often as you need to via the TrackWrestling web site. Questions on the TrackWrestling process are
