No-Gi Weight Classes 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Competitors weigh-in WITH no-gi uniform on.  Competitors will have until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday before the tournament to update registration information. To avoid disqualification, we recommend that all competitors double check their weight before this date, especially youth and junior competitors as sudden growth spurts can happen.

Children, Youth, and Juniors (ages 5-17) Weight Classes 

Children, youth, and junior competitors  are required to provide age at tournament time and current weight when registering. Please be accurate and double check weight with no-gi attire, as these numbers will help us to form the best brackets possible. Please avoid having children cut weight.

Important update: After consulting with several coaches and our referees, we have decided to move all of the children’s divisions to the submission only format. Between the high level of instruction on your part and our referees attention to details and regards for safety, I believe the children will be safe with the submission only format. In order to gain as much experience as possible, these brackets will be run in the round robin format.

*Please avoid having children cut weight.
