The first day that Wrestling Assessments can be conducted is October 31, 2016. If you have a new athletic trainer that has not been an assessor in the past year, and you plan on using them as your assessor this year, please use the online "Assessor Application" under "Wrestling" in the menu of your MyWIAA account to submit their name. The Weight Management Program staff will contact them via email to provide them with the information and process to get certified.
If you plan to use the same assessor from last year, you will be able to see their name in the list of "Assessors" under the "Wrestling" section in the menu after they have completed their re-certification. Re-certification will begin on October 10, 2016.
If you have a new head boys or head girls wrestling coach, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating who they are and their position. This will help us set the Weight Management Program so that they receive the Physician Clearance forms for athletes below 7% body fat for males and 12% body fat for females. Also, they will need to add wrestlers, print out Data Collection Forms for the assessor, weight loss plans after the assessments are entered, and weigh in rosters for matches.
Also, if you are a new Athletic Director and need more information on the Weight Management Program for wrestlers, please feel free to send us any questions that you may have and we can get them answered. The 2016-17 season begins November 14, 2016 with practices.
