Skin Checks (REQUIRED AT EVERY TOURNAMENT)
If a participant is suspected by a referee or a coach of having a communicable skin disease or any other condition that makes participation appears inadvisable, the coach/parent must provide current written documentation from a physician stating that the suspected disease/condition is not communicable and the athlete’s participation would not be harmful to any opponent. This document shall be furnished at the weigh-in and be available for review prior to competition in the dual meet or tournament. Covering a communicable condition shall not be considered acceptable and does not make the wrestler eligible to participate. (Skin lesions may be covered while wrestling unless otherwise excluded by this policy requiring minimum treatment for contagious skin diseases.)
