That being said, if my kid does everything right gets his WIAA skin note from a doctor is cleared you can bet your butt as a coach I am going to get pretty frustrated by someone who is not a doctor telling me that my wrestler isn't cleared. I am not referencing the state tournament in my statement. But usually at league and regions there is not a doctor there. We want kids to see doctors to get their skin stuff treated not try and hide it. When they do that and then are told they still might not be able to wrestle. All they learn is hide my stuff which passes crap along. just my opinion.
I know the argument on the other side will be. How do we know if they have been treating and doing what they were supposed to do. Which is fair we don't know. And if it is extremely blatant and oozing something like that I totally get it. But if they do what we are asking them to do punishing them after the fact just from what I have seen leads to kids trying to hide it.
We had a dual this year where a wrestler brought his skin note to the official without being asked. Trying to do the right thing show that he had his stuff taken care of. The official looked at the note and the spot cleared his spot. Then did a full three minute skin check of this young man that I have never seen so detailed. After the wrestler was done weighed in every other kid was about 20 seconds or less. I could hear the wrestler after say, well obviously I am not presenting the note unless they see it that was embarrassing. I don't think the official was wrong checking thoroughly but I do think it gives insight into the way kids think right now. Again just my opinion.
