The age bracket concerns are valid for both safety and quality of competition, and to dismiss them as anything other than legitimate is either arrogant or ignorant. If Daddy Coach thinks Lil' Billy is a super stud and wants to wrestle up, then go for it. As for these other kids, wrestling is one of the very few sports where children can expect physical parity in each match and the game itself is played without added advantage. Granting such a wide span of age ranges literally erases any meaningful age parity that is expected at these age groups. You wouldn't allow a nine year old child compete with a fifteen year old, would you?
