Schools can start using experimental mat-side video review this winter
An experimental rule that allows mat-side video review takes effect this season, excluding open tournaments.
Designation of the official mat-side video review system will be determined by the host school before the beginning of competition.
The host will also determine the number of mats and the rounds the mat-side video review system will be used. If the mat-side video review is used, the host must provide notification to participating coaches no later than weigh-ins.
Mat-side video review may be used to confirm or reverse on-the-mat decisions, except a fall.
The mat-side video review process will operate under the assumption that the ruling on the mat is correct, and only when there is indisputable video evidence that a ruling was incorrect, will a call be changed. Absent that evidence, the original ruling will stand.
Each team will be allowed one coach’s challenge per dual meet, including team advancement tournaments.
Each team in an individual advancement tournament, excluding open tournaments, will be allowed three challenges to be used at the coach’s discretion. If a coach’s challenge is successful, the team will retain that challenge.
A coach may ask the referee to stop the match for a challenge by approaching the scorer’s table when there is no significant action and requesting that the match be stopped.
