Depending on athlete turnout, Copa Virginia reserves the right to combine Gi weight and age (Adult and Master) divisions.

Parents/Guardians in order to register your kids, you can start by creating an Account for yourself and then add your kid as a new Profile from your Account in order to use the same email address. If you have several kids, you will need to switch Profiles and pay for each child before you register for the next one; you can have multiple profiles per one account/email. Available entries (divisions) will be visible based on the your profile information (i.e. age) so, some divisions will be unavailable for registration (greyed out) to avoid mistakes due to age restrictions. Please note that registration/brackets/scoreboards is based on the Profile's info (name/date of birth). Therefore if you use your own Profile (instead of you kid's) it will not work due to the age restrictions for the divisions.

Last day for the regular price registration is 5 July (11:59pm).

In order to ensure a smooth running tournament all competitors must pre-register. There will be no same-day registrations. Last day/time to register and/or edit your registration is Thursday 12 July, 11:59pm.

All participants will weigh-in with the Gi on. Weigh-ins will take place on the day of the tournament and before the first scheduled match of each participant to discourage weight cutting.
