Proving Grounds Washington State Rankings

Unlike some ranking lists, that reward all division wins the same, Proving Grounds ranking will give a much more accurate picture of who are the top Washington State grapplers. Quality and consistency are the keys to victory.

An competitor’s ranking points will be awarded based on:

Individual tournament performance within their bracket

  • Submission = 3 points
  • Draw = 1 points

Level of event participation

  • (.25) One quarter of a point for the 1st event attended.
  • (.75) Three quarters of a point for the second event attended when in succession with a previous event.
  • (1) One point for participating in all 3 events for the year.

Example of points calculation 1: Wallid attended the February 3rd event and earns 3 submissions, 2 draws, and 1 loss. He then competes in the June 2nd event and earns 3 submissions and 1 loss. When October comes, Wallid skips the event due to an injury that occurred during surfing. His ranking points would be: 

After February 3rd – 11.25 points (3+3+3+1+1+.25=11.25)

After June 2nd – 21.00 points (11.25+3+3+3+.75=21.00)

Year end – 21.00 points (21.00+0=21.00)

Example of points calculation 2: Terere scores 2 submissions in February. When June comes, all the big guns show up and he sweeps the division by earning 5 submissions. Returning from a marathon of competitions, in October, he has a mixed showing, earning 3 submissions, 2 draws, and 1 loss. His ranking points would be:

After February 3rd – 6.25 points (3+3+.25=6.25)

After June 2nd – 22.00 points (6.25+3+3+3+3+3+.75=22.00)

Year end – 34.00 points (22.00+3+3+3+1+1+1=34.00)

*In cases where a competitor moves up a weight class or skill level due to there being a lack of competitors in their registered division, the athlete’s earned points will also be applied to their registered divisions ranking.
