Youth Tournaments
A Youth Tournament is a local area tournament that is hosted by a local club or school. These tournaments are not connected to the Ohio Athletic Committee. They do not count toward computer points and do not earn criteria for District or State events.
Computer Point & Novice Tournaments
Computer Point Tournaments are tournaments in which wrestlers earn Computer Points to give them seed criteria for the Grade School Sectionals, District and State (Junior High Districts & State) Novice Tournaments are tournaments in which only wrestlers with 3 or less years’ experience (no state experience) may compete. They are designed to match up wrestlers with similar experience and skill level. Some Novice tournaments take place during Computer Point Tournaments while other Novice Tournaments may be held during a youth tournament. There is a regular computer point system for Novice wrestlers that compete in OAC Novice Tournaments and is separate but similar to the regular Computer Point system. A wrestler MUST be pre-registered online to be able to receive computer points. NO points are added for a wrestler after the online registration closes. The Novice also has a State Tournament. The computer points earned by your wrestler, over the course of the season, factor in to determine the seed at the Novice State Tournament.
A wrestler’s computer points will accumulate at the weight class of the most recent Online Registration. Once a wrestler registers for a Sectional (JH District) Tournament however; the points automatically accumulate to the weight class you selected for Sectional (JH District) and that is the weight class they will remain with.
Note: The higher the number of computer points a wrestler earns, the better their seed position which; keeps the wrestler away from other seeded wrestlers, increasing his chances of placing and advancing to the State Tournament. A seed is a term used to place wrestlers on a bracket for a particular weight class. The reason wrestlers are seeded is to separate the more accomplished wrestlers away from each other so; theoretically they do not meet up till later in the tournament or in the finals. Byes are randomly assigned at all events.
There are end of season awards for the top point scorer in each weight class of the Grade School Computer Point & Novice Divisions. These wrestlers are named as 1st Team All Ohio Regular Season. The top over-all point scorer in the Computer Point & Novice Division earns the Ohio Iron-Man Award. The top three-point scorers in each of the weight classes of the Grade School Computer Point Novice Divisions are invited to participate in the Opening Ceremony of the Grade School State Tournament. End of the Season Awards will be available for pick up at the Event Services table at the Grade School State Tournament.
The Novice State Tournament is conducted by the Ohio Grapplers organization. You can find more information on the Novice State Tournament at novicestate.com
