NOVICE Wrestler

Is he/she a Novice wrestler?

I will do my very best to give my short version when handling novice questions.
The definition of a novice wrestler has many other variables other than just two years of competition.
Unfortunately, in the past, we found some parents, coaches and clubs miss treating what novice is meant for.
As a result, we came up with something that we felt describes what a novice wrestler is.  

1st: If you have placed in regionals or in the state tournament, regardless of how many years you have wrestled, you are NOT a novice wrestler.

Every wrestler is different.  Our reasoning is pretty simple the wrestler’s ability to compete at the next level.
This is where we put our faith in the coaches  and parents to make the right choice.

Case # 1:
      You may have wrestler who has been wrestling for more than 2 or 3 years… and has never won a match or hasn’t been successful in placing in tournaments. Just hasn’t developed or matured yet.
          The wrestler likes wrestling, but by the “definition” isn’t considered novice.  But their ability and skill is still at the novice level.  We have told coaches and parents who have wrestlers that have this situation to leave them in novice. You must contact the director first.

Case # 2:
       You may have wrestler who has been wrestling for 1 year… and has won matches and even placed in tournaments.  The wrestler improves each week.
          By nature they are a good athlete.  Again by “definition” this wrestler is considered novice.   But their ability, skill and aggressiveness is that of an open or advanced wrestler.

In these two of cases  the definition really doesn’t apply. This wrestler is NOT a novice.

We rely on coaches, helpers and parents to use their judgment.  You know who wrestles and their ability and how aggressive they are on the mat.
We believe there are good people who will make the right decision – based on the wrestlers ability, skill level, and aggressiveness in a competitive level. 
 Our goal in MYWA and in the West Region is to provide an opportunity for all wrestlers to wrestle all year at a level where they can have fun and develop.

 If a concern is brought to our attention, we will investigate.

Proper protocol for novice questions is to contact your coach or coaches with any questions or concerns, FIRST.  If they are not able to answer the question or concern, then THEY can contact Kevin Krebs, not the parents.
