SATURDAY WEIGH-IN SCHEDULE:
Kids and teens may weigh in as early as 7:00am, when our doors open.
Adult men and women may begin weigh in at any time after 9:00am, but they MUST be weighed in 15 minutes before their scheduled start time, or they risk being disqualified.
If you are competing in multiple divisions (gi and no-gi), you only need to weigh in ONE time for the whole day.
HOW TO WEIGH-IN:
To discourage unhealthy and potentially dangerous weight-cuts and diets, we do not longer holding weigh-ins on the night before our tournaments. We recommend our athletes compete in a weight division that falls under their normal everyday weight.
Weigh-ins are without the gi at the venue at an assigned time before your division.
There is a 1-pound allowance to account for undergarments and scale difference
If you miss your scheduled weigh-in time, you will be considered absent, your name will be removed from the brackets, and the bracket will be re-drawn.
If you do not make weight or do not weigh-in during your assigned weigh-in time, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM YOUR WEIGHT DIVISIONS. If you signed up for Absolute divisions, you may still compete in those in your weight allows (ex. If you signed up for the Absolute No-Gi 0-170 lbs., but you weigh-in over 170 lbs., you will be disqualified from your Absolute division too).
Please make sure you are at the weight you registered for, as there will be no refunds or transfers given due to disqualification or missing weight for any reason.
Competitors 13-years old and above may not change weight divisions on the day of the tournament as brackets will already be finalized and posted. If you know you need to change your weight division after you have registered, please contact us before 8PM on the Thursday before the tournament to change divisions.
We have recently updated our ruleset. Please review the rules and feel free to contact us if you have any questions: 2017 Grappling Games Rules
