Developed in partnership with Befour, a leading wrestling scale manufacturer, this new feature enabled paperless weight capture — either manually or via Befour’s bluetooth scale — and a variety of reports and graphs for tracking athlete weight.
During this past high school season (2018-2019), more than 150 schools used this feature to record 17,000+ weigh-ins. Of these weigh-ins, 75% were recorded wirelessly using Befour’s bluetooth scale.

Chilton High School, Wisconsin
Garden City High School, Kansas
Kirtland High School, Ohio
Palo Alto High School, California
Revere High School, Ohio

This is an exciting and encouraging start for this new-to-wrestling capability. We will continue working with our partner, Befour, to enhance this feature and promote its adoption throughout the wrestling community.
