CELTIC Elite Tournament UPDATES and MIDGET SEEDING POINTS

Hi Everyone,

Thank you to all teams and competitors who have competed in our tournament in the past. We hope to see you again.

Tournament Facts:

Weigh Ins: Day of weigh ins no satellite weigh ins. We will be using weigh in cards. Part of the delay last year was coordinating weigh in sheets which is more time consuming unless you only have one scale. Our goal is to get everyone weighed in as soon as possible.

Wrestling: Starts and 4:30 on Saturday both divisions. As we get the wrestler list in we will update you as soon as we know if certain weight classes will only be Sunday. We have a lot more out of state wrestlers coming this year therefore it may fill some of the brackets. We will wrestle until 9:00 on Saturday. The FLO PREMIER LEAGUE is not happening this year because Flo Wrestling discontinued the program. If you liked it, then please let them know. We will start wrestling at 9:00 AM on Sunday. Our nice wooden framed bracket boards arrived!

MIDGET POINTS: Same as last year. There will be points awarded as follows....

Midget Division (Celtic only)
12 points for 1st place
9 points for 2nd place
6 points for 3rd place
3 points for 4th place

Elite Division (Celtic, Midwest, Tholl)

(3 points for participation+ place points)

20 points for 1st place
14 points for 2nd place
8 points for 3rd place
4 points for 4th place

We will be updating information on here.


Thanks,

Celtic Elite

Tournament Structure and Times

Hi Everyone,

TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE:

We will be wrestling on 12 mats that will have the Track Wrestling Clocks. Every weight class in both divisions will be wrestling on the same mat all day. We will not be announcing bouts and assigning mats as we go. The bout numbers will be at the top of the clock in numerical order. It will be up to the wrestler and or his parents to follow the mat bout numbers. We will have white boards at each scorer table that will be raised periodically with the on deck and in the whole bout names. Only those wrestlers will be allowed to enter the wrestling area beyond the ropes. Weight classes that have 8 man brackets will be the only wrestlers not wrestling on Saturday. Round robins will wrestle their first match on Saturday and we will try to get those done first. We will announce 8 man brackets Friday sometime. In order to do this we will not allow late entries. If you are having trouble registering then email celticelite@gmail.com.

Please notify your parents to bring a chair in case they are on one of the mats on the West end. We will not allow parents mat side nor to be standing near the ropes for very long. ALSO, THERE IS A HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING TOURNAMENT BEFORE WE START ON SATURDAY. WE WILL BE EMPTYING OUT THE FIELD HOUSE AT THAT POINT AND YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN UNTIL 3:30. WRESTLING WILL START AT 4:30. We will wrestle up to the quarter finals on Saturday and again everyone who is not in an 8 man bracket will wrestle on Saturday at least once.

We will be selling wristbands at weigh ins at the Providence Cafeteria for entry to the tournament so you can by pass the line.

WEIGH INS:

Weigh ins are going to be from 11:00 Am to 1:00 Pm at Providence Catholic High School. We will have track wrestling weigh in cards there and wrestlers must use them and fill them out completely. This will facilitate efficient weight entry into track and allow us to build the brackets quicker. Our goal is to get the wrestlers in and out as fast as possible.

Coaches Registration:

We will have different color bands for coaches. You must have a band on your wrist and a coaches card hanging at your chest to be allowed into the wrestling area. In the past, we did not charge for coaches. However, it seems that our coaches go to tournaments every week and pay to get in. Therefore, coaches must pay. If you run a tournament that we go to and you do not make coaches pay, then we will reciprocate the gesture equally. However, you must email (celticelite@gmail.com) me prior to the event and, then bring my reply email with you to the coaches registration table at weigh ins. If you have to pay anyway, then you can get a band after 3:30 at Lincoln Way Central. Before you get a band you will need to sign in, pay, and have your USA Coaches card with you. We will not have rosters to verify.

No, brackets of 8 or less do not wrestle Saturday. Brackets bigger than 8 wrestle Saturday until there is 8 left on championship side. All brackets wrestle from the quarter finals Sunday.

looking at the matrix only 5 brackets as of right now are bigger than 8 man. Why the low numbers so far?

30 percent of registrations happen within 48 hours and 50 percent happen within 24. I believe there were 100 wrestlers registered for Winter Nationals two days before it ended with over 500. Some people are waiting for the names to be released so they can decide if they want to cut weight. Many teams are in the system and not released yet because of payment which we are taking care of today.
