DAVID BLOOM MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL.  LETS BE A TEAM AND THINK OF OTHERS.  PASS YOUR CLASSES AND THINK OF THE LESS FORTUNATE.

The Wantagh Warriors hosted the David Bloom Memorial Tournament named after one of our own who passed away. This tournament is named after him and will continue to honor his memory. The team finished up in second place. Wantagh had Cumberland R.I., Bishop Hendricksen R.I., Plainview, Rossevelt, Sachem North and Hewlett. Some of the teams did not face off against each.

2014-2015 Battle at the Beach

The Wantagh Warriors opened the start of the 2014-2015 season at the Battle at the Beach at Long Beach HS. The black and gold finished in 4th place which is exactly how they did last year. Without being biased we have to be very happy as once Christmas arrives we will receive a two pound weight allowance which will allow alot of our wrestlers to move down in weight to where they want to wrestle the rest of the season. We were also missing Nick Barbero who was out with an injury. As our coaches like to say good competition makes you better and it is all about preparing for the end of the year. That’s where we want to peak and will. We have a great schedule and I believe that we are a great Dual Meet Team. Last year we won the Dual Meet Championship as well as the Counties. When the Counties roll around, it is all about trying to qualify as many wrestlers as we can to advance into the tournament and pick up points. Each wrestler picks up advancement points as they move on. We will also have an advantage as the entire county will have wrestlers spread out weakening other teams. We are strong at certain weight classes which will not effect our position. Last year we finished second in our conference and yet won everything when it counted.

The top four teams at Long Beach were Massapequa, Long Beach, Hewlett and Wantagh.

The final results were:
99- Mosher (SS) def Mansa (Syos) by fall 1:06
106- Teemer (LB) def. Vines (Wan) by fall :13
113- Maquet (LB) def Loew (Wan) dec. 4-1
120- Quinn (Wan) def Gibbons (Mass) by fall :40
126- Swanson (Lyn) def Vargas (Syos) dec. 6-5
132- Arujua (Syos) def. Pincushion (Hew) dec. 15-4

LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT BY STEVE FRASER OLYMPIC GRECO CHAMPION

Do You Love Wrestling?

By Steve Fraser

October – 2014

Do you really enjoy wrestling? Do you look forward to the fight? Do you long for the moment when you can get into a battle with that other wrestler?

Recently, I visited the University of Michigan’s wrestling room and practice. Michigan is where I got my college education and where I wrestled back in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. What a fantastic wrestling room they have now, named the Bahna Wrestling Center. This five-year-old facility is state of the art, from top to bottom.

After watching the practice, head coach Joe McFarland asked me to say a few words to the team. I could not help thinking how jealous I was to see all of these young guys soaking wet from sweat that was produced from this tough work out.

I had a “flash back” of when I was wrestling at Michigan. I remembered how much I loved to wrestle; how much I loved to mix it up with people like Mark Churella, a three-time NCAA champion and my teammate. Churella and I wrestled almost every single day. Talk about a tough training partner, Churella was the toughest!

Churella was also someone who loved the sport. He absolutely loved the act of wrestling. He loved learning new skills. He loved conditioning his body in a way that would crush his opponents. He loved the mental game. Churella loved all of it! And of course he taught me to love it as well.

Having fun with the sport of wrestling is very important in being successful at it. We must constantly remind ourselves to “Love the Battle.” We must love the process, love the fight and love the struggle as well as the breakthroughs. Loving success is easy. Loving the whole process of achieving success is what helps one to advance to a new level of competitive skill.

So have some fun this month. Think humorously to create those positive emotions. When you think goofy off the wall thoughts, your nervousness and fear will disappear. When your emotions start getting the better of you, internal laughter will put you back on track. Life is too short to be stressed out.

At first, Churella used to beat the living tar out of me. But because I stayed in there with him, coming back for more every day, I began to improve. Slowly, I started to give him a better fight and then eventually I improved enough to get him back, even with some of his own stuff.

For example, I was not a leg wrestler in high school, but before I knew it I was throwing legs in and successfully turning him (on occasion) and my opponents. To this very day, I know I shock many people (especially because most look at me as a Greco guy only) when I throw the legs in and turn them. Churella, as most know, was awesome with leg wrestling. Learning these new skills for me was fun.

Practice using your mental focus in the present time. Operate in the here and now, especially during competition. This will enhance your “ideal competitive state” and your talent and skill will come alive. During the battle, if you are thinking about the past or future it will hamper your ability to really open up and go for it. Enjoy the present moment and your performance will flourish.

Think energy, which is everything. Generating a high level of positive energy will create that “dynamic fight.” It will help you to heighten those positive emotions that will make you strong with confidence. Think “fun” and more positive energy will start flowing immediately. Say to yourself, “I love it! Isn’t this great! Show me the pressure!”

Churella always seemed to thrive on the pressure, the more the better.

When you get in that close match, remind yourself how you love it. You love the pressure, you love the excitement and you love putting it all on the line. For you, life would be too boring if you did it any other way. No holding back, no excuses, you are going for it. Do the best you possibly can. Wrestle to win it at all costs and then, win or lose, be proud because you gave it every ounce of everything you had.

NEW FILA FREESTYLE AND GRECO RULES IN EFFECT FOR 2014

THE WANTAGH WRESTLING TEAM WILL BE COMPETITING IN SOUTHHAMPTON IN SUFFOLK COUNTY THIS SATURDAY. PLEASE SPEAK TO THE COACHES IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND.

RULES:
Article 24 – Duration of the Bout
For schoolboys and cadets: two periods of 2 minutes with a 30-second break.
For Juniors and Seniors: two periods of 3 minutes with a 30-second break.
For all the competitions, the timing displayed on the scoreboards will start from 0 to 3 minutes (from 0 to 2 minutes for schoolboys and cadets).

The winner is declared by the addition of the points in both periods at the end of the regular time. Evident technical superiority of 8 points for Greco Roman wrestling and 10 points for Men’s and Women’s Freestyle wrestling automatically leads to victory and to the end of the bout.

The fall stops automatically the match whatever the period.

Men’s and Women’s Freestyle wrestling: The duration of a period is 3 minutes. If, after 2 minutes in the first period, no wrestler has scored then the referee must obligatorily designate the passive wrestler.

Greco-Roman wrestling: The duration of a period is 3 minutes. In the case where a bout ends by 0-0, the victory goes to the wrestler who was deemed the most active last.

Article 30 – Interrupting and Continuing the Bout

When the wrestling has been stopped in standing or “par terre” position, it will recommence standing. Wrestling must be stopped and resumed at the centre of the mat in the standing position if:

– One foot entirely touches the protection area.

– The wrestlers in a hold go into the red zone with three or four feet without executing the hold and stay there.

– If the bottom wrestler’s head entirely touches the protection zone.

In all illegal actions such as fleeing the hold, fleeing the mat, faults committed by the attacking wrestler or injuries in “par terre” wrestling, the bout shall continue in “par terre” position.

In all illegal actions such as fleeing the hold, fleeing the mat, faults or injuries in standing position, the bout shall continue in standing position.

To save attacking wrestler, if he/she lifts his/her opponent from the ground during “par terre” wrestling and the attacked wrestler prevents the attack through an illegal action, the referee will penalize the wrestler at fault by caution 1 or 2 point and bout will continue in “par terre”.

If an attacked wrestler takes an illegal action in the “par terre” position, he will receive a caution and 1 or 2 points will be attributed to his opponent. The bout resumes in “par terre” position, without considering if the wrestler has succeeded or not in his hold.

When a challenge is requested by a coach, the mat chairman interrupts the bout when the action is back to neutral. 

Article 31 – Types of Victories

A bout may be won:

– by “fall”

– by injury, withdrawal, default, disqualification of the opponent

– by technical superiority

– by points (winning by 1 point more at minimum after addition of the two periods)

In case of tie by points, the winner will be declared by successively considering the highest value of holds, the least amount of cautions and the last technical point(s) scored (see layout below).

Example : Red Blue Comment Result
1 1 1 1 1 1 Last technical point scored by the blue wrestler. Blue winner
1 2 1 1 1 Last technical point scored by the blue wrestler. The red wrestler scored a 2-point hold. Red winner
0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 Last technical point scored by the red wrestler, but he has two cautions and the blue wrestler has only one. Blue winner
1 1 1 1 2 0 The blue wrestler scored a 2-point hold which is the highest value hold Blue winner
1 1 1 0 1 2 0 The red wrestler scored the last technical point; but the blue wrestler scored a 2-point hold. Each of the wrestlers has one caution. Blue winner
1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 Each of the wrestlers has two cautions. The blue wrestlers scored the last technical point. Blue winner

CHAPTER 6 – POINTS FOR ACTIONS AND HOLDS

Article 36 – Evaluation of the Importance of the Action or Hold

In order to encourage risk-taking during bouts, when a wrestler tries unsuccessfully to execute a hold and finds himself underneath in a “par terre” position without a move by his opponent, the wrestler above will not be awarded a technical point and both wrestlers will be brought back to their feet immediately. However, if, during a hold, the defending wrestler executes a counterattack and is able to bring his opponent to the ground, he will be awarded the point(s) that correspond to the action.

If the attacking wrestler executes a hold on his own bridge, holds this position for a certain amount of time, and then completes his action by placing his opponent in the bridge position as well, he will not be penalised. Only the attacking wrestler will be awarded the points, as he will have completed the action in a hold that involved risks. However, if the offensive wrestler is blocked under control in the bridge position or by a counteraction by his opponent, it is clear that points will be awarded to the latter wrestler.

Furthermore, the wrestler on whom a hold was initiated may only be awarded points if, by his own action, he has:

a) Brought the offensive wrestler to the ground.

b) Conducted the action on a continuous basis.

c) Succeeded in controlling the offensive wrestler by blocking him in a bridge position, that is, in a position considered completed.

d) The referee must wait for the end of each situation prior to awarding the point values earned by each wrestler.

e) In cases where the wrestlers’ actions lead them to change from one position to another, the points for all the actions are awarded according to their value.

f) The instantaneous fall, “both shoulders of the wrestler touching simultaneously and instantaneously the mat”, is not considered as a fall (totally controlled by the opponent) (article 44). If the wrestler falls instantly from a standing position following a move by his opponent, the attacker receives four points provided he demonstrates control.

If the wrestler falls instantly during his own move, his opponent receives one point. When wrestling in the “par terre” position when the wrestler is in the situation of instant fall, his opponent receives one point.

g) Rolling from one shoulder to the other using the elbows in the bridge position, and vice-versa, is considered to be only one action.

h) A hold must not be considered to be a new action until the competitors return to the initial position.

i) The referee will indicate the points. If the judge agrees, he will raise the bat bearing the colour and value in question (1, 2, 4 or 5 points). In the event of any disagreement between the referee and the judge, the mat chairman must make a decision in favour of one or the other of the wrestlers; he is not allowed to give a different opinion, except if he calls for a consultation and obtains majority.

j) In the event of a fall that occurs at the end of regulation time, only the sound of the gong (and not the referee’s whistle) is valid.

k) At the end of a period, any hold is valid if it was completed before the gong sounded. In no event may a hold finished after the sound of the gong be counted.

Article 37 – Danger Position

A wrestler shall be considered in the ‘danger position’ when the line of his back (or the line of his shoulders) vertically or in parallel with the mat, forms an angle of less than 90 degrees to the said mat and when he resists with the upper part of his body to avoid a ‘fall’. (See definition of ‘fall’). The danger position occurs when:

– The defending wrestler assumes the bridge position to avoid being pinned.

– The defending wrestler, with his back toward the mat, supports himself on one or both elbows to avoid having his shoulders forced onto the mat.

– The wrestler has one shoulder in contact with the mat and at the same time exceeds the 90 degree vertical line with the other shoulder (acute angle).

– The wrestler finds himself in the ‘instantaneous fall’ position, that is, when he is on both shoulders for less than one second.

– The wrestler rolls on his shoulders.

The ‘danger position’ no longer exists when the wrestler exceeds the 90-degree vertical line with his chest and stomach facing the mat.

If the mat and the competitor’s back form a 90-degree angle only, this cannot yet be considered a ‘danger position’ (the neutral point).

Article 39 – Grand Amplitude Throw

Any action or hold by a wrestler in the standing position that causes his opponent to lose all contact with the ground, controls him, makes him describe a broadly sweeping curve in the air, and brings him to the ground in a direct and immediate danger position shall be considered a “Grand Amplitude” throw.

In the “par terre” position, any complete lift from the ground executed by the attacking wrestler, whether the attacked wrestler lands in neutral position (4 points in Greco Roman, 2 points in Freestyle) or in a danger position (5 points in Greco Roman and 4 points in Freestyle), is also considered a grand amplitude throw.

NB: If the wrestler executing a grand amplitude hold himself touches the mat with both shoulders, he receives 4 or 5 points and his opponent receives 1 point, due to the instantaneous fall in the execution of the throw.

Article 40 – Values assigned to the Actions and Holds

1 point

– To the wrestler who applies a correct hold while standing on the mat or in the “par terre” position with three points of contact but who does not secure control by passing behind.

– To the wrestler who blocks his opponent on one or two outstretched arms, his back facing the mat.

– To the wrestler who is prevented from completing a hold because his opponent is maintaining an irregular hold, but who finally succeeds in completing the hold.

– To the attacking wrestler whose opponent flees the hold, the mat, refuses to start, commits illegal actions or acts of brutality.

– To the wrestler whose opponent goes in the protection zone with one entire foot (in standing position).

– All the stops of bout by injury without bleeding or any visible injury are penalised by 1 point to the opponent.

– To the wrestler whose opponent requested a challenge if initial decision is confirmed.

– To the opponent of a wrestler designated as passive who fails to score points during a 30 second activity period in Freestyle wrestling.

– To the wrestler whose opponent, either top or bottom wrestler, refuses correct “par terre” starting position after a first friendly warning.

– To the defending wrestler if the attacking wrestler goes into the instantaneous fall position or rolls across his shoulders in executing a hold.

– Reversal (counter attack by dominated wrestler in par terre position and passing behind)

2 points

– To the wrestler who overcomes and then controls his opponent by passing behind (three points of contact: two arms and one knee or two knees and one arm or head).

– To the wrestler who brings his opponent to the ground and passes behind him, and while in this position holding him down with control (three points of contact: two arms and one knee or two knees and one arm or the head).

– To the wrestler who applies a correct hold while wrestling in the “par terre” position and places his opponent in a position of danger or in an instantaneous fall position.

– To the attacking wrestle

whose opponent rolls onto his shoulders.

– To the attacking wrestler whose opponent flees the hold out-of-bounds and lands in a position of danger.

To the attacking wrestler whose opponent commits an illegal hold that hinders the execution of an engaged hold or a fall

– To the wrestler who blocks his opponent in the execution of a hold from the standing position, in a position of danger.

– To the wrestler who executes a grand amplitude hold and secures control, but does not place the opponent in a direct and immediate danger position in Freestyle wrestling.

4 points

– To the Greco-Roman wrestler performing a hold in a standing position, which brings his opponent into a danger position by direct projection over a short amplitude.

– To the Freestyle wrestler who brings his opponent into a danger position by direct projection and demonstrates control. Short amplitude is not required in Freestyle.

– For any hold executed by raising a wrestler from the ground, over a short amplitude, even if one or both of the attacking wrestler’s knees are on the ground.

– To the Greco-Roman wrestler who executes a grand amplitude hold which does not place the opponent in a direct and immediate danger position.

If, in performing a hold, the defending wrestler maintains contact with the mat with one of his hands, but is immediately placed in a danger position, the attacking wrestler will receive 4 points.

5 points (in Greco Roman Style)

– All grand amplitude throws executed in a standing position which bring the defending wrestler to a direct and immediate danger position.

– The hold executed by a wrestler in the “par terre” position who completely lifts his opponent off the ground with the execution of a high amplitude throw which projects the opponent into a direct and immediate danger position
