Proving Grounds’ Pacific NW 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, quantity, and consistency are the keys to victory.

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

  • Individual tournament performance within their bracket
  • Level of event participation (number of matches and events for the year)


*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 be applied to the division in which they actually compete.

*For any competitor to be in contention for the #1 State ranking position, they must have submitted at least one competitor in a KYS Promotions sanctioned event.

*In order for a division to be eligible for a rankings list, the division must have had a minimum of (3) three unique competitors compete.

*Tie Breaker

In the event of a tie for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Place, the ranking placement will be determined by:

1. Most Submission finishes of unique competitors

2. Submission total tied->>Head to Head results

3. Head to Head draw->>Most active competitor based on number of total matches

4. Most active competitor tied->>Fastest recorded submission

5. Fastest Submission tied->>Greatest number of event appearances

6. Greatest number of event appearances tied->> Competitors will share the disputed placing
