What is Weight Class Certification

  • All high school wrestlers go through a procedure which establishes their current body fat.  Calculations are then conducted to establish that athlete's weight if they were 7 %.  This weight establishes the lowest weight the individual can compete.

    Athletes do not need to lose weight to compete.  Some naturally lose weight during the season due to increased activity.  A few athletes lose weight to gain a competitive advantage.
