The Good Fight: Weight Classes & Bracketing


The Good Fight is currently using what is called: The Madison System. This weight-class and block-bracketing system became a popular tournament format in the world of scholastic wrestling. Because it is a block-bracketing system there are no set-weight classes to sign up for. This allows the tournament director to pair grapplers into brackets (usually 8-man) based on their actual weight during weigh-ins; the day of the tournament.


This system of block-bracketing prevents competitors from cutting excessive weight since they don’t know the weight classes until after the brackets are posted the day of the tournament. Competitors benefits greatly because it allows them to be paired up with grapplers closest to their actual weight and skill level.


At weigh-ins, each grappler turns in his or her weigh-in card that they receive when they check in at the tournament. After they step on the scale their actual-weight is recorded and written on the top-right side of their weigh-in card.


After the scales close, brackets are built starting with the lightest competitors forming the first weight class and so forth. If there is too large a weight difference between the lightest and heaviest wrestlers in a particular bracket, the bracket is divided into smaller weight classes. The Good Figth will strive to utilize a "10-2" rule where everyone in a bracket is within 10 percent weight and (two years of age for kids and teens).


After the weight classes are determined, each bracket is adjusted by separating competitors from the same school. It is important that ALL competitors from the same school put down the exact same team name or this could cause a problem in the bracketing software when separating teammates. Once a bracket has been rearranged and checked, they are printed out and then posted on the wall. Competitors are then given a chance to look over the brackets. If they find any problems they can bring it to the attention of the tournament director for correction or explanation of why.


Aside from preventing grapplers from cutting weight, the Madison System has other advantages. By striving to put an equal number of competitors in a bracket, it allows almost everyone to have to grapple the same amount of matches to win first place. In many tournaments there is often a wide range in the number of bouts it takes to win 1st place. If there are four wrestlers in a bracket, one would need to win just two bouts. However, a bracket with 36 grapplers might require six or more victories. The Madison System eliminates this situation.
