    Re: Kids Wrestling Tournaments

    I went to the tournament in Gilbert last Friday. I must say, the trophies they give out are awesome. My kid wrestled in the K-2 division, and everyone got a trophy (size depended on place). Ran extremely well, and the young men who reffed were extremely patient with the wrestlers. Great job on their part.

    Plus my kid got second, so mom and dad are proud of his effort.

    In all honesty I think youth wrestling borders on child abuse.

    Re: Kids Wrestling Tournaments

    I went to one a year or so ago because my nephew wrassled in it. For the most part it was ok, lots of little kids having fun, kind of just crasing into each other but there was def a bad side to it for sure. There were more than a few psychotic dads and coaches trying to make up for their own shortcomings for sure. It was a great laugh.

    I believe you are wrong on this. Kid's wrestling tourneys don't border on child abuse, they actually are child abuse.

    How do those developmental tournaments go; are they TD tournaments, or when a pin happens, they start over?

    Re: Kids Wrestling Tournaments

    Developmental tournaments: The kids are allowed to wrestle. The don't score the match, but do call pins. If there is a pin, the kids go back on to their feet and start over. Give the newer wrestlers that chance to get some mat time. At the end, both kids get their hands raised. It is the ultimate in "everyone gets a ribbon" kind of thing, but more importantly, it gives the very new wrestlers the chance to get on the mat.
