There will be no physical weigh-ins at registration for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
7th and 8th grade have no ball carrying limitations so this rule does not apply.
Each head coach will get 1 weight challenge per tournament. In any game a coach feels an opposing ball carrier is above the allowable weight, he/she will call a timeout and have the official mark the number of the ball carrier who just finished a carry from the opposing team on the tournament issued RED CARD. The game will continue until the conclusion and the challenging team will not be charged a timeout. When the game is complete, the site manager, along with the head coach from each team will weigh-in the challenged player and either deem the player eligible or ineligible. The challenged player will receive a 3 pound scale variance (MUST WEAR SHORTS & T-SHIRT MINIMUM). If the player is not weight eligible the team will forfeit the outcome of said game and that player will not be eligible to participate for the duration of the tournament.
WFC staff also reserves the right to weigh in any ball carrier at their discretion.
Coaches please be honest and responsible and make sure ball carriers are under the weight limitation. This new policy is designed to save time and money for everyone involved whether they are a local or traveling and the fact multiple complexes are used for the tournament.
