2016 Highlands Ranch Youth Wrestling Tournament

2016 Highlands Ranch Youth Wrestling Tournament

Date:        Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Location:The Highlands Ranch Tournament will be held at Highlands Ranch High School.  Highlands Ranch High School is located at 9375 Cresthill Ln, Highlands Ranch, CO.  When you are on campus. The gym area will open at 9:00 am.  

Directions: Enter Through the Students doors by the Gym. Third Left after turning off University onto Cresthill Lane.

Doors will open at 9:00 am.  Registration for the tournament will be completed by your coach ahead of time.

Entries:   (IMPORTANT)
Step 1:
All entries must be given to the club coach before the time and date he requests, so your coach can enter your wrestler online before Friday afternoon.  

Step  2: We understand that sometimes a wrestler gets sick or family plans change, and a wrestler who was entered earlier will not be able to compete on Sunday.  For us to determine when this is the case, we ask all wrestlers to check in on Sunday morning when they arrive at the tournament.  To check-in, a wrestler must come to the check–in table of his/her age group, and let the person at the table know you have arrived.  They will at that time officially check the wrestler in.  All wrestlers who check in will then have the top of their hand marked in some way indicating to you as a parent they are officially checked in.  If a wrestler does not check in at Highlands Ranch HS on Sunday morning, before the check-in time deadline (listed below), they will be scratched from the tournament.  Please pay attention to your check in time, so we do not have to say “sorry” to your wrestler.
