3)  You must wrestle for a sanctioned USA Club at WSWA events.  If you do not belong to a sanctioned club or are "umbrella'd" under another club - you must sign up under the club that is sanctioned OR wrestle Unattached.  You cannot wrestle for a city - it must be for a sanctioned club.  All weigh in cards will be checked at all events and changed to Unattached if you are not under a sanctioned club.
