TNAAUs goal is to promote a safe environment for all wrestlers. For this reason, TNAAU will not permit any form of weight cutting. The following rules will be strictly enforced at weigh-ins. There will be no check scales at TNAAU weigh-in location. No weight cutting activities such as running, spitting, wearing sauna suits, etc… will be not permitted. Any wrestler found doing so will be immediately disqualified from the tournament. Once a wrestler steps on the scale their weigh-in is complete. If the wrestler is overweight, they can challenge by immediately moving to a second `challenge` scale at the weigh-in site. The lesser of the two weights will be entered as the official weight; no further weigh-ins will be permitted. If the wrestler is overweight for their registered weight class, they WILL BE SCRATCHED. NO BUMPS.
Fingernails will be checked please trim before weigh ins
Hair will be checked if longer than eyebrows,ears,or collar wrestler will need to show hair net in hand
Teeth will be checked to see if braces need a mouth piece. If wrestler needs mouthpiece they must show mouthpiece in hand
Skin will be checked. If there are any skin issues they must have in hand a dr. note properly filled out. (SEE TNYOUTHWRESTLING.COM for proper form to be used by dr.) If there is no dr. note wrestler is then DQed from tournament. No appeal.
Skin Issue: there will be a Trainer OR Dr. on site that has last say. If trainer feels it is an active issue wrestler may be DQ even if a DR note is provided.
