Corona Virus Advisory
The 2020 National Championships and all Associated Events WILL Proceed as Planned
The NCWA has continued to study how COVID-19 impacts the conduct of our tournaments and events, and we have taken precautions to ensure protocols have been put into place to enhance our already comprehensive practices that prevent the spread of disease. To that end, our measures include the following:
- Three health professionals have been retained to address safety and hygiene at the event;
- As usual, the NCWA will use medical grade disinfectant on all competition areas, surfaces, and mats;
- Each score table will have a supply of proper commercial disinfecting wipes and spray,
- All athletes go through a health screening including skin checks at weigh-ins daily.
No sport is better prepared, and has already been implementing for years, safe health procedures concerning communicable disease than wrestling. In addition to the precautions above we will have on-site athletic trainers, team physicians, local physicians, and EMT’s to address any injuries or disease concerns.
We support and defer to our member institutions as they make decisions regarding participation that they determine is best for their athletes, coaches, and communities.
We look forward to putting on a safe, healthy tournament, and continuing our long-standing tradition of competitive athletic endeavor, academic excellence, leadership, and community involvement.
The NCWA continues to monitor all available guidance from local, state and federal health agencies related to COVID-19.
