2024 WKU Canadian National Championships

Hello competitors from across Canada! Welcome to the 2024 WKU Canadian National Championships!

This year we are excited to be hosting the Canadian National Championships bigger and better than ever before, with more competitors traveling from all across Canada to compete. This event is the direct qualifier to the 2024 WKU World Championships which will be hosted in Greece, fall of 2024.

If you would like to represent team Canada on the WKU World stage then this is a must attend event for any martial artist. We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces as well as new faces with the goal of building the best Team Canada possible.

This event is multiple days, spanning Friday July 12th to Saturday July 13th. Friday July 12th will be dedicated to event Check-in & Weigh-ins. July 13th is a full day of competitions.

Event Registration:

All event registration will be conducted through Smoothcomp, and should be completed no later than July 9th, 12:00 AM MST. Ensure you have read the rules for the divisions you wish to enter before registering. Normal registration will end on June 28th at 12:00 AM MST. If you do not register for your desired divisions before the end of Normal registration, there will be a late fee applied to division costs. Late registration will be available from June 28th 12:00 AM MST to July 9th 12:00 AM MST after which point registration for the event will be closed.

Refunds:

Competitors are eligible for a full refund during normal registration (before June 28th, 12:00 AM MST). After the normal registration period, a partial refund of 25% will be offered during the late registration period (June 28th 12:00 AM MST to July 9th 12:00 AM MST). No refunds will be provided after July 9th, 12:00 AM MST.

Check-in & Weigh-in:

Once registered, competitors will be ready to proceed to the Check-in and Weigh-in.

Check-in & weigh-in for all divisions will take place between 5:00 PM MST and 8:00 PM MST on Friday, July 12th, at the venue location: Genesis Centre, Featured Gym.

Check-in & weigh-in are mandatory for all competitors. Missing either check-in or weigh-in will result in a forfeit from any divisions registered without the option for a refund. If a competitor does not make weight (Weight is higher than division criteria), competitors have 3 options:

  1. Sweat off the added weight and retry, no limitations on weigh-in attempts.
  2. Change divisions. This is a division edit and will require a +50% charge to the registration cost made by the competitor for all affected divisions.
  3. Bow-out of the division, forfeiting the registration costs. The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM PST on July 12th and all competitors must be on time.

Event Schedule:

Opening Ceremonies will launch the event, where the WKU Canada President and other WKU officials will give a short speech. There will be information pertaining to the WKU World Championships and WKU organization. A small performance will be put on as well.

Following the Opening ceremonies, WKU Canada aims to start divisions at 10:30 AM MST on July 13th, and Smoothcomp's dynamic scheduler will display division start times
