For all age divisions 17 years old and under:

No participants younger than 6 years old will be accepted.

Spectator Fees: $10 at the door.  Coaches (brown and black belts only) of registered athletes enter for FREE. Academies can have one coach per 5 students registered for the event (2 coaches per 10 students, 3 for 15 etc.) Please email us no-later than 2 days before the event, with the coaches' names, so we can enter them on our guest list in time.

Pricing per division for 17 years old and under: Early registration $70, Normal $80, late $90.

Depending on athlete turnout, "Copa Virginia - Richmond 2022" reserves the right to combine weight, age, belt, as well as gender divisions for all 17 years old and under participants. Please note that 16-17 years old participants may get combined with the adult (18 years old and over) divisions depending on turnout and/or upon request from parents/guardians.

Every 17 years old and under participant will be guaranteed at least two matches (except for the 16-17 years old athletes ONLY WHEN combined with the adult divisions). This is mainly a double elimination event for the 17 year old and under divisions, with the loser bracket fighting for 3rd place/Bronze medal. Participants will get at least 2 matches, even with a 3-(round robbin) or a 2-person bracket (best 2 out of 3).

Time limits for matches are the following:

16 & 17 years old - 5min

14 & 15 years old - 4min

12 & 13 years old - 4min

10 & 11 years old - 4min

8 & 9 years old - 3min

6 & 7 years old - 2min

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 may 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. When you register for your kids weight division please take into consideration the weight of the gi as well.

It is customary NOT to have weigh-ins for all 17 years old and underage divisions (however, we reserve the right to hold weigh-ins when deemed necessary). In order to continue this, we expect parents/guardians to use the honor system when registering their kids' weight (thank you!). If we believe there is a gross underestimation of the weight listed on a kid's registration, (for safety reasons) we reserve the right perform a spot weigh-in for that athlete and if found above the limits of the weight division registered for, they may be disqualified.

Last day for the early price registration is 22 October (11:59pm).

Last day for the regular price registration is 19 November (11:59pm).

Last day for the late price registration is 10 December (11:59pm).

In order to ensure a smooth running tournament, all competitors must pre-register. There will be no same-day or past-deadline registrations. Last day/time to register and/or edit your registration is Saturday 10 December, 11:59pm.
