Five to Six Matches Per Event

No Weight Cuts & More Fair Matches

2 Hour Wrestling Windows

Tournament Directors can Guarantee that parents will spend a maximum of 2 hours in the gym (per wrestler in a family). In and out quickly.

Our rating system allows us to accurately rate wrestlers, and pair them against the best possible matchups. Weight cutting does not provide a competitive advantage.

Our nationwide average is just over 5 matches per wrestler, per event. In 2 hours. We've seen as many as 12 matches in a 120 minute window. Lots of quality mat time!

Text Message Pairings

A Great Experience For Beginners

1 in 3 wrestlers will start and quit before the 5th grade. Using our rating system, we can pair wrestlers based on skill, creating fair matchups for all levels. This helps retain beginners through skill-appropriate matchups.

All pairings happen via text message. Parents get texts when they've requested a match, when their child is paired, and when the match concludes.
