DATES
• Sunday, 30 July 2006
• Monday, 31 July 2006
(Novice Clinic Workshops )

SANCTIONED BY
The Wrestling tournament will be sanctioned by Fédération québécoise de lutte olympique.

AFFILIATION
To be eligible for the Open and Masters Categories (excluding Novices), participants must be registered with FILA, or with a FILA-affiliated organisation in their country of origin. Though accepted, FILA licenses are not required. A card showing membership in a FILA-affiliated organisation is, however, mandatory. Participants must show proof of membership at accreditation time.

ORGANISING COMMITTEE

RULES
Fédération internationale des luttes associées (FILA) rules will be used. The FILA scoring system will also be used. Anti-doping policies will be applied.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
The 1st World Outgames endorses a healthy and fair approach to sports training and competition. Sport events in the 1st World Outgames are sanctioned by provincial, national, and in some cases, international sports governing bodies. In order to adhere to the rules of these sporting federations and to guarantee that the Outgames are run in a fair and just manner, GLISA and the Outgames have adopted the policy as set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Consequently, all athletes competing in the 1st World Outgames must adhere to GLISA’s position on drugs in sport and may be required to undergo drug-testing. We encourage all participants to become familiar with this policy.
 
POLICY ON TRANSITIONED AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

The objective of the 1st World Outgames in this regard is to provide an experience where all athletes are able to compete in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination of any kind. Our priority is to find the appropriate balance to ensure that no person, regardless of their birth gender, is disadvantaged in athletic competition and at the same time that no person participating in the Outgames experiences discrimination.

GLISA and the 1st World Outgames have collaborated so as to develop a policy that reflects this balance. We encourage all participants, especially those who have identified themselves as ‘transgender’ in the registration process, to become familiar with this policy.

COMPETITION FORMAT
The competition format will follow FILA rules.

Participants may register in ONE of three divisions for their weight class and gender. There will be separate competitions for the Men's and Women's divisions.

The following categories will be used:

Open (18 to 35 years)
Masters (36 to 45 years and 46 + years)
Novice (all ages)

NOTE: To be eligible for the Open and Masters Competition (except for Novices), wrestlers must provide proof that they are a member of FILA or a FILA-affiliated organisation in their country of origin. Though accepted, FILA licenses are not required. A card showing membership in a FILA-affiliated organisation is, however, mandatory. Participants must show proof of membership at accreditation.

  • The event for Novice wrestlers will be held on Monday, 31 July 2006. Men and women in the various age groups will train together. This will not be a competition but rather an opportunity to improve skills together.

Weight classes with five or fewer wrestlers will use the FILA Nordic Tournament system. All wrestlers will compete against those in their weight class. If there are five participants in a particular weight class, each competitor will take part in four matches to establish his or her ranking.

For weight divisions with six or more wrestlers, the competition will be held in two parts:

Part 1

Elimination by pool: This will be held in a round-robin format in pools of three or four wrestlers. Wrestlers are paired in the order of numbers drawn at random during the weigh-in from the smallest to the largest number (for example, number one against number two, etc.) and are then divided into pools of three or four wrestlers.

Wrestlers in each pool compete against other wrestlers in the same pool (two or three bouts). The wrestler who has the highest number of classification points in each pool will advance to the final round.

NOTE: Once winners of each pool have been determined, it is sometimes necessary to hold a qualification round using the single elimination system, or knock-out format, to obtain the ideal number of wrestlers (divisible by 4). Pairing for this round will be between wrestlers placed highest on the pairing charts.

Part 2

Final round: This round will use a single elimination system, or knock-out format. Competitions will continue until only two wrestlers remain. These two will compete for first and second place in their division and weight class. The losers of the semi-finals will compete against each other for third and fourth place.
Separation Criteria
A. Within weight divisions:

Where possible, separation criteria will be used within each weight division. The criteria will be by club, then city/region and then by random draw. This information will be collected from each athlete prior to or during the weigh-in.

B. Twelve or more wrestlers in a weight division:

Where there are 12 or more wrestlers in a weight division, the division will be split into two. Medals will be awarded to those who place first, second and third in each division. The separation criteria will be the same as above (by club, then by city/region and then by random draw).
Rule applicable where there is only one wrestler in a weight class

If, after the weigh-in, there is only one wrestler in a weight class, the wrestler will have the choice of wrestling in a higher or lower division (subject to the approval of the officials) or to stay where he/she is. If the wrestler opts to remain in the same division, he or she will be awarded a gold medal.

Exhibition matches may be organised with another wrestler of similar weight and experience provided both wrestlers agree. Officials reserve the right to make final decisions on the organisation of exhibition matches.

Rule applicable where there are only two wrestlers in a weight class

If, after the weigh-in, there are only two wrestlers in a weight class, they will compete against each other. First- and second-place medals will be awarded.

Since each wrestler will only wrestle in one match, and weight divisions with more entries will wrestle a minimum of two matches, exhibition matches may be organised with other wrestlers of similar weight and experience.
