South Australia State Championships/Apex Freestyle Wrestling Cup
Date: Saturday 20 February 2021
Venue: Norwood Oval
As part of Diamonondback FC’s APEX Sports Fest, Wrestling SA will be running the Apex Freestyle Wrestling Cup. This will be open to all ages, from kids to adults, under standard Olympic Wrestling Freestyle rules. It will also constitute our State Titles. This event was originally scheduled for November 28, 2020, but had to be rescheduled due to COVID restrictions.
The competition will be conducted in accordance with UWW Rules; the draw will use a modified pairing system. A standard 12x12m wrestling mat will be used, but it will be set up outdoors, protected from sun and rain by a pavilion overhead. Weigh in will be on the morning of the event. Weight categories for seniors are set to current Olympic Rules. For youth weight categories click here. All competitors must make weight within these categories.
Note that all SA Health guidelines will be strictly followed to keep the event COVID-safe. COVID Marshals will be patrolling all areas advising spectators on social distancing and hygiene.
