Same here. The IKWF is becoming a bad car accident. Bodies strewn all over the highway. But you canít stop looking.

Iím amazed the proposal wasnít put forward to move 12 year olds, etc back again because now someoneís kid is now 12. LOL. What a joke.

By the way, stopping kids from wrestling where ever they darn please at any point in the year is a joke. Sounds like the Soviet Union to me. News flash. The IKWF is not God. Itís not the wrestling police. But it is becoming a joke.

Reading the comic section from the IL funny pages is amusing. Good luck to all the sane parents who put up with this.

ďSenior Division: There are currently 18 weight classifications:
NEW WEIGHTS----70, 74,79,84 90, 96, 103, 110, 118, 126, 135, 144, 154, 164, 176, 188, 215, 260
Note: Number of weight classes remains at 18.Ē

Seriously? Senior division needs a 70lbs weight class? What a joke. Because 4lbs is so much more? Letís cater to the kid who wonít even be heavy enough in high school to wrestle 106lbs. I mean itís bad enough that IHSA has 106 lbs to cater to freshmen and sophomores, now IKWF is doing the same. Look at 2019 IHSA State, 3 classes of 106 only had 15 11th and 12th graders out of 48 wrestlers. Thatís a JV weight bracket in my book.

By comparison, IESA has 2 lower weights 65 and 70, plus 2 classes. USAW has 71. I think other States have it too (eg. Iowa).

Some additional data to give you all perspective, a comparison of all weights between leagues, plus IK proposed. Hope I didn’t botch.
Also note that for 31 yrs between 1971-2007 there was a 70lb weight class (Salas was the last champ, & before that it was Fontanetta). Point being that it wasn’t the end of the world then. Shouldn’t be the end of the world this time around.

USAW - IESA - IK CURRENT - IK PROPOSED

71-70-X-70

90-90-89-90

If the ages are going to stay the same and the goal is to keep smaller kids in IK versus going to IESA then #70 makes complete sense.


Any word on condensing some of the larger Novice weights? Full brackets would be a positive come March.

Check your mommas address and if you have a problem with it call me.

If the new 15-year-old rule passes what happens to the current rule in place regarding holdbacks? Right now rule basically states you have to be held back prior to 6th grade.

So will this new rule super-seed the current hold-back or just be an amendment to it?

I’m pretty sure you have the rule wrong. You have to be held back prior to 3rd grade. 6 seasons starting in 3rd. 5 seasons starting 4th grade and so on. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that is how it is suppose to work. Of course people could lie. But I am sure no upstanding citizen of the IKWF would ever do something like that. LMAO.
