      CHRIS BRAYTON - WRESTLING

      Chris Brayton has spent a large portion of the past three decades officiating wrestling, although he also officiated volleyball for four seasons earlier in his career. Chris has officiated 10 state tournaments, 15 regional tournaments, and 28 local, sub-regional tournaments and has served on the Western Washington Wrestling Officials Association Executive Board for many years. He is currently vice president, where his primary responsibility includes providing basic training for new officials and advanced training for various officials.

      Chris has won numerous honors in recognition of his leadership, involvement, and commitment, including the WWWOA President’s Award, Inspirational Award, and Service Award, and he is the association’s nominee for the 2018-19 WOA Meritorious Service Award.

      Chris’ training style has had a significant impact on the WWWOA. He has led the way in developing a training format that combines hands-on officiating lessons with video examples and specialty scenarios, providing a more interactive application model of training. Along with this training, he has been a key mentor to new officials. His knowledge and experienced, along with his sense of humor and supportive personality, help new officials train quickly and prepare for challenging assignments.
