Weight Certification will take place on Saturday 10/19 at Lambert High School at 10:30am.  This is mandated by the GHSA and must be completed by every wrestler before that are allowed to compete this season (you can practice without this but will not be able to compete).  The process is pretty simple and the test will not take long.  It goes like this:
  1. Drink plenty of water and water only (avoid soda, gatorade and salty foods) throughout the day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning.
  2. Show up at Lambert High School (entrance near the tennis courts) 15 minutes early at 10:15am with $10 in hand
  3. Wrestlers should wear light weight t-shirt and shorts (if cold weather, bring them with you)
  4. Fill out the test form (this is why you need to be there early) before you get in line to be tested.
  5. Don't worry, no multiple choice on this test.  They are just measuring Hydration, Body Fat, Height and Weight to determine what weight classes you are allowed to wrestle in.
  6. Everyone should be done in 20-30 minutes.
