Weigh-ins ?
All wrestlers must maintain the weight/weight class that they are placed into at weigh-ins for the Regional round. For example - You're son weighs in at regionals with a weight of 120 lbs and is placed in the 122 lb bracket. When he weighs-in for Sectionals he must in at 122.0 lbs or less. If he weighs in at 122.1, he will be declared ineligible and will not be allowed to wrestle. Thereby forfeiting his remaining matches.
