01/07/13 – Wrestling SKIN CONDITION

January 7, 2013 Wrestling Blog Updates

PrintWe have been contacted in the office that certain skin conditions have been identified at this weekends past tournaments held at  multiple sites. I would like to remind each of you to take the necessary steps to aid in the prevention of the spread of these conditions. Coaches please continue to monitor your students and if need be, refer them to a local medical professional. Coaches and officials, please take note that we updated the “Wrestling SKIN CONDITION” form ( WR111) two years ago. We believe it will benefit all parties involved by clearly stipulating weather the condition falls under Rule 4-2-3 (which requires a form to be renewed every Seven days) or Rule 4-2-5 (that allows for valid documentation for the duration of the season). Please take time to make your self familiar with this form. I have included a link to our website where you may download and make copies as needed. Always remember, regardless of documentation, NFHS rule 4-2-4 states: … “If a designated on-site meet physician is present, he/she may overrule the diagnosis of the appropriate health care professional signing the medical release form for a wrestler to participate with a particular skin condition.” I would advise any of you hosting a tournament to make sure you have a medical professional on site for your weigh-ins.
