CLW keeps track of our kid's wins and losses each season for their stats and regularly updates them in the "Stats" section of our website. It is also kept for their overall Lifetime win stats.  At the end of the season, we award the kids for reaching different levels at the banquet.  It encourages the kids to keep going to try to hit the next level.  There are 15-win, 20-win, 30-win, 40-win and 50-win clubs for the season. You are responsible for checking/verifying your wrestler's stats throughout the season. Wrestlers stats are FINAL when we enter the Novice/Senior state series.


Win Criteria

IKWF season starts 12/1 - This is when wins and losses will be calculated.

Only Wizard scheduled IKWF sanctioned events count towards win club.

National (in season) tournaments count towards win club (BYES AT NATIONALS DO NOT COUNT).

Bye criteria

1. A bye only counts as a win in a "seeded" tournament such as Regionals. Only 1 bye counts per tournament and you only get the bye as a win if you win the following match.

- if the wrestler wins his match after the bye this will count as 2 wins.

- if the wrestler loses his match after a bye it only counts as 1 loss.

3. A wrestler can only receive 1 bye/win potential per tournament or bracket.

4. If a wrestler only has 2 matches at a 3-match tournament a bye is not given.

5. If an opponent leaves a completed bracket for any reason such as injury, illness, or ejection this is considered a forfeit and the wrestler receives a win(All tournaments seeded and non-seeded).

6. A forfeit at dual tournaments where the opposing team does not have an opponent at their weight receives a win.

Wizards Picture Link


 To all Wizard families:

We have a collection of Wizard photos from over the years.  The link to the Wizard Smug Mug photo album is:, please go take a look!!  We have taken many photos from past seasons.  Check out the site to see if you can find any of your wrestler.

The albums/pictures have no restrictions. You can download and print any of the pictures, and there is no charge. You may order prints or gifts directly from the site or download the pictures you want onto a disk and take it to any store. 

Pictures are very important part of the Wizards Family.  If you have any pictures or videos and want to upload them to our photo albums, please submit them to our dropbox.  It's very easy to use and you can upload one or several at a time.  Please indicate the tournament they are from.

With that in mind, we are always looking for more people to take photos at tournaments of as many Wizards they can.  If you have interest in helping out periodically at tournaments you will be attending, that would be so helpful.  Volunteering to do this does not mean that you have to do it at every tournament either.  

Contact with any questions.
