Weights. There is a two pound allowance. Please do not be late for weigh-ins. If a wrestler is overweight, it's possible but unlikely we can bump to the next weight. At the present time, there is not a 220 or 285 pound weight class.
Format. All brackets are traditional advancement brackets. Double elimination. 5 minute matches. Standard high school rules. The top four in each weight class will compete for medals in the late afternoon session. Wrestlers in Session 2 are welcome to remain in the building prior to final round.
Parking. It's possible our lot will fill up. There is free street parking on nearby Shepherd Drive and overflow parking at Dulles Electric (accessible from a different street). Here is map that shows allowable parking spots. Do not park elsewhere or you risk being towed. If you haven't been to TOP before, confirm location on the above map. Many GPS and online maps will take you to the wrong place.
Spectators. Only one per wrestler. As Session 2 wrestlers arrive, we will be at maximum capacity assuming one spectator. To comply with Virginia rules, all persons must wear facial coverings unless actively involved in wrestling. Admission is $10. Only official team coaches without their own children wrestling are admitted at no charge.
