The TSSAA requires that all Varsity and JV wrestlers must have a hydration test and official weigh-in prior to the start of wrestling season. This test will be performed by a certified trainer in the MUS wrestling room on Wednesday, November 9 beginning at 2:30. All current football players who will wrestle after their season ends must take this test, and they will go to the front of the line.
As a courtesy to MUS wrestlers, there is NO charge if you participate in the on-campus testing on November 9. You will be able to take the test at a later date at another site, but you are responsible for the $10 fee.
Please note: lower school wrestlers do not have to be tested. However, there are a few experienced 8th graders that will also wrestle JV. Those wrestlers will be contacted directly by Coach James Walker, and they must report to the wrestling room on November 9.
For parents who are new to wrestling, this is an annual mandatory requirement that is fairly quick and easy. The wrestler provides a urine sample, which the trainer tests immediately, then he steps on a certified scale to measure his weight. Wrestlers compete in one of 14 weight classes based on pounds (106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220, 285 max for heavyweights). To insure safe weight management practices, the hydration test combined with the official weigh-in will keep a wrestler from losing too much weight prior to, and during, a season. For more information, please refer to the following web sites linked below, or contact a wrestling coach.
