Dear coaches & athletic directors:
My name is Ray Ferraro and I am the President of the Easton Wrestling Booster Club. We are looking for teams to come into our Easton Invitational Friday & Saturday Jan. 6 & 7, 2012. ( see attachment for more details ). We are also seeking schools from the East & South to attend the Reno Tournament of Champions in Reno, Nevada, Friday & Saturday Dec.16 & 17, 2011. This is a high profile Tournament with many College Coaches from across the Country in attendance . Easton has attended this Tournament every year for 16 years. The exposure is fantastic.Many nationally ranked wrestlers compete in this tournament every year. If you have a good team or good individuals this tournament is for you. This tournament fields between 75 and 100 teams each year and each year we compete for the best teams in the country.Make a vacation out of this as Lake Tahoe is only 1 hour away and there are many other places to visit.For more information email me at rayferraro1@yahoo.com. The hotel rooms are approx. $60.00 per night.( you can put 2, 3 or 4 wrestlers in a room ) Thank you . Ray Ferraro

From: Jim Pokrivsak, Director of Athletics
Subject: 2012 Easton Wrestling Invitational (Varsity & Junior High)
Date: March 2011
I am writing to organize a tentative list of interested schools for the Friday (p.m.), January 6, 2012 and Saturday (all day) January 7, 2012 Easton Wrestling Invitational. Please inform me of your intentions immediately. This is to accommodate ďout of townĒ teams that may be entering. We had teams from six (6) states last year (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Virginia). All P.I.A.A. policies/procedures must be followed by all attending schools (non-Pennsylvania schools must complete the attached ďSupplement to Contract for Contests Involving Non-Member SchoolsĒ prior to participating in the event.

We will be hosting the event again at our 3000+ seat gymnasium (5 mats/session) and also the newly renovated smaller gymnasium (2 mats/session) located at the current Easton Area Middle School Campus (formerly Shawnee Middle School) within our school district. The invitational can accommodate up to 30+ teams on 7 mats. We have had contact with many teams outside of Pennsylvania that are interested in attending. I need to know how many competitions you want scheduled to organize tentative pairings. I will also need to know if you want the competitions on one day, two days or you have no preference.

NOTE:
We are also beginning to organize our Junior High Wrestling Invitational as part of this weekend. We will invite quality teams and create competitive dual matches. The junior high matches will be wrestled simultaneously with the varsity matches on various mats throughout the two gyms. In 2011 there were ten (10) junior high teams competing at various times throughout the invitational. This will help expose the younger wrestlers to the ďlargeĒ crowd atmosphere of many varsity matches.
Please notify me immediately if your thoughts on entering the tournament change. Future correspondence will include information such as session times, ticket prices, and locker room assignments. We anticipate a $100.00 entrance fee charged for each dual match a team wrestles (varsity and/or JH). This will help defray the cost of officials, athletic training coverage and a hospitality room for coaches. Do not send payment now. I will notify you later this year once the schedules are set.
Please let me know if you need assistance in lodging for your team, parents, spectators, etc. I have had contact with local hotels to get you the best room prices possible.

The following highlights and summarizes the major eligibility rules of PIAA at the date of revision of this form. This list does not contain every rule or every detail and is offered only as a summary. A complete set of the eligibility provisions can be found on the PIAA Web site at www.piaa.org/resources/handbook. Additionally, the PIAA-member school is responsible for compliance with ARTICLE XII, ATHLETIC RELATIONS, Section 1, Teams Which Member Schools May Play, subsection A, of the PIAA By-Laws, and the non-PIAA member school is responsible for adherence to its agreement that its contestants will comply with all PIAA eligibility rules.
SUMMARY OF MAJOR PIAA ELIGIBILITY RULES
AGE
To be eligible, a student must not have reached his or her 19th birthday by June 30 immediately proceeding the applicable school year.
AMATEUR STATUS AND AWARDS
To be eligible to participate in a sport, a student must be an amateur in that sport. A student loses amateur status in a sport if the student, or the studentís parent(s) or guardian(s), receives money or property for or related to the studentís athletic ability, participation, performance, services, or training in a sport.
A student may accept awards from the studentís school or the studentís school-affiliated booster club, the sponsor of an athletic event, a non-profit service organization approved by the studentís school Principal, or the news media. Permissible awards are items of apparel, a blanket, watch, ring, scroll, carry-on or warm-up bag, photograph, medal, plaque, or similar award, with appropriate institutional insignia or comparable identification. The fair market value of items provided to any such student may not exceed $200.
ATTENDANCE
1. A student must be regularly enrolled in a school and in full-time attendance thereafter. 2. A student is eligible only at the school at which the student is enrolled. Exceptions exist for home-schooled students and students enrolled
in Charter Schools or Cyber Charter Schools. 3. If a student is absent from school during a semester for a total of 20 or more school days, the student loses eligibility until that student has
been in attendance for a total of 45 school days following that studentís 20th day of absence.
CONSENT OF PARENT OR GUARDIAN
A student is eligible only if there is on file with the Principal of the studentís school a certificate signed by the studentís parent or guardian consenting to that studentís participation in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests in the particular sport involved.
PREPARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION
A student is eligible only if the student has participated in a pre-participation physical evaluation performed by an Authorized Medical Examiner (as that term is defined in the GLOSSARY of the PIAA By-Laws), before the studentís first sports season's first Practice of that school year.
Before participating in the first Practice of each subsequent sport season of the same school year, the student may be required to be re- evaluated and re-certified that the studentís physical condition is satisfactory. Check the specific By-Laws to determine whether re-evaluation and re-certification are required.
Wrestlers must also obtain from the Authorized Medical Examiner, prior to each wrestlerís first Practice, a certification of the minimum wrestling weight at which the student may wrestle.
In all cases, the Authorized Medical Examiner must certify as to the physical fitness of the student to participate. Execution of another state high school associationís form, which is comparable to the appropriate PIAA form, is acceptable for Contests with out-of-state schools.
TRANSFERS
A student is treated as having transferred whenever the student changes schools, even if the student is promoted to a higher level school or is out-of-school for a period of time before entering the new school.
If the studentís transfer from one school to another is materially motivated in some way by an athletic purpose, the student loses athletic eligibility in each sport in which that student participated within a period of one year immediately preceding the date of that studentís transfer.
PERIOD OF TIME AFTER EIGHTH GRADE, PARTICIPATION, AND GRADE REPETITION
A student loses eligibility when the student has: 1. Reached the end of the studentís fourth consecutive year beyond the eighth grade. If the student repeats a grade after eighth, the student
will be ineligible as a senior. 2. Played six seasons beyond the sixth grade or four seasons beyond the eighth grade in any sport. 3. Completed the work of grades 9-12, inclusive.
ACADEMIC AND CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS
1. A student must pursue a curriculum defined and approved by the studentís Principal as a full-time curriculum. 2. A student must be passing at least four full-credit subjects or the equivalent as of each Friday during a grading period. A student who fails to meet this requirement loses eligibility from the following Sunday through the Saturday immediately following the next Friday as of which
the student meets this requirement. 3. A student must have passed at least four full-credit subjects or the equivalent during the previous grading period, except that eligibility for
the first grading period shall be based on the student's final credits for the preceding school year. A student who fails to meet this requirement loses eligibility for at least 10 or 15 days of the next grading period, beginning on the first day that report cards are issued. If the studentís school has four grading periods, the student will be ineligible for at least 15 school days; if the studentís school has six grading periods, the student will be ineligible for at least 10 school days.
ALL-STAR CONTESTS
A student loses eligibility in a sport for one year if the student participates in an all-star Contest in that sport.
