OFSAA Wrestling Playing Regulation Update

Please be advised that the following rule changes will be in effect for the 2014 OFSAA Wrestling Championships. These changes will supersede those published in the 2013-2014 edition of the Wrestling Canada Lutte Rulebook. All other rules previously published in the 2013-2014 edition will be in effect. This is necessary because OFSAA playing regulations state that we follow CAWA rules. Because CAWA made these changes, OFSAA must follow the changes.

Competition Format:

A wrestler must have a minimum of 30 minutes rest between the end of one bout and the beginning of the next bout.

Wrestling Rules:

Technical Superiority
• 10 points for Freestyle Wrestling.

• Freestyle Wrestling: 4 points for all throws.

End of Match
• Elimination of 2 x 3 points and seven point differential resulting in a victory.

Par Terre
• Elimination of the 5 second count for the 1 additional back point exposure.

• From the standing or neutral position, whenever a wrestler secures control of his/her opponent and brings him down without back exposure, 2 points are awarded. This may occur as either an offensive or defensive maneuver (anything that goes directly from the feet to the back is worth 4 points).
