Make sure that when you create a Smoothcomp Account you provide accurate information for the athlete that will be registered in the tournament. Choose the division that matches the athlete's age and weight.
BANTAM DIVISIONS: For Bantam 1 and Bantam 2 divisions, weight classes have been made to reflect Light, Middle, or Heavy. Athletes should be placed in the most logical weight class. Bantam Division athletes will not be disqualified for not making weight. Following weigh in, athletes will be grouped by closest weight before the start of the tournament.
NOVICE DIVISION: If the athlete has less than 6 months experience they can enter the Novice Division. For each age division in Novice, there is either a Light, Middle, or Heavy option. Choose the weight class that makes the most sense. Athletes in the Novice Division will not be disqualified for not making weight. Athletes in the Novice Division will be grouped by closest weight before the start of the tournament.
Please remember to use an approved/conforming white judo Gi to regulation. If you are designated as a blue contestant you have the option of wearing an approved/conforming blue judo Gi. Both white and blue contestants are responsible for bringing their own white and blue belts.
If you are new or need a refresher on further rules or GI regulations please visit usjf.com
