ATH­LETE ELIGIBILITY ADVISORY:

| Jim Giunta

ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY ADVISORY:Reports are circulating of athletes at NCWA institutions competing prior to completing the 14-day wait period mandated in the athlete registration process. Any institutions with student-athletes competing without following the proper registration process will be sanctioned. Additionally, individuals can lose their eligibility for the season. Please see the attached rule below:

Article 2.1 NCWA Requirements for Wrestlers- (7th paragraph)“A student who is enrolled at an NCWA member institution and participates in an open tournament or team competition after the start of the NCWA season, without being properly registered and cleared for competition with the NCWA, will be declared ineligible for the remainder of the season and retroactive to the date of infraction. Team fines for this violation also apply.”

DO NOT ALLOW WRESTLERS WHO HAVE NOT COMPLETED THEIR 14-DAY WAIT PERIOD TO COMPETE - IT MAY COST THEM THE SEASON!

A student-athlete must:
1.) create an account at ncwa.net - linking to your approved team
2.) pay the NCWA dues at that same sight
3.) upload the properly signed waiver form

THEN, the 14-day required practice period begins. Only after all of these steps are complete is an athlete eligible to compete. Any competition prior to that 14 day wait period expiring, even with unattached after his or her name, is an infraction and will be subject to a sanction for team and athlete.

Col­le­giate Jiu-Jit­su League Holds Initial Competition

| BJJ World

On Saturday, April 27th, Collegiate Jiu-Jitsu competition became a reality. Chris Martin, jiu-jitsu coach at Marquette University and head marketing officer of Nova Gyms in Milwaukee, with the support of the National Collegiate Wrestling Association, hosted the first-ever Collegiate Team Dual meet where Marquette students faced off against the Northern Illinois University Jiu Jitsu team. The competition, though new and unique, included features familiar to grappling fans of all persuasions.

The first competition, reflecting the influence of the NCWA, was a true dual meet, where teams of six faced off, each in his/her own weight class. Wins by submission offered higher point values, and faster wins offer still higher rewards with a team champion being crowned based on total points. 

Appren­tice School wrestler makes his­to­ry. She can weld, too

| Hugh Lessig

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — Before working out with the wrestling team, Erin Aragon sat down and told a childhood story that was difficult to believe.

She was maybe 10 or 11 years when she forced herself to order a meal in a restaurant — out loud, by herself — for the very first time.

"I cried when I did it," she said. "It was really, really bad."

A phone interview with her mother confirmed this story. Lisa Aragon said her daughter was painfully shy and could not walk into a new experience without being terrified.

How things change.

Erin Aragon, 24, is the first female wrestler in the history of ......
