CIF Wrestling Weight Certification Overview:
In addition to this Weight Certification Program, it is imperative that the school's wrestling coach monitor each athlete throughout the entire season to ensure they are maintaining or losing weight properly and in a healthy and safe manner. This program has been developed in response to the need for guidance of young wrestlers as they make decision about diet, nutrition, and weight control. It has been documented that wrestlers often attempt to lose weight rapidly, often in an unhealthy and unsafe manner, to gain a perceived advanage over their opponent. This Weight Certification Program is designed to assist wrestlers and coaches in avoiding potentially harmful, rapid weight reduction practices untilized to achieve specific weight class participation. Our CIF Assessors are a critical component of this program.
CIF member-schools sponsoring the sport of wrestling are required to participate in the assessment portion of the weight certification program established by the California Intersscholastic Federation for all competing wrestlers, regardless of the level of competition. Any wrestler who has not completed the assessment process is ineligible for competition.
The Wrestling Weight Management has been attached for all coaches, parents and wrestlers to review.
