RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE DIVISIONS
If I select QBJJC
The QBJJC reserves the right to adjust registrations where appropriate - it is the policy of the QBJJC not to have categories with only one competitor. One competitor categories will be abandoned with the competitor being moved up in age to another category i.e. an child born on 23-11-2007 will be 13 years old on the 31st of December and should select the 13 Years Teen Division - this child (if they are alone in thier chosen category) will be moved to the first available weight category whether that be a 13 or 14 Years or even to a 15 Years category. The same too goes for a competitor in a single competitor category, they will be merged up in weight to the first available category. On rare occasions competitors who are matched may be merged up to match with a single competitor category. Kids may go up in Age & change weight.
I realise that my child may be merged into another weight, age, belt or even gender category to ensure that they have a match, and that this will be done to the next closest division available, and wave my right for a refund in this event of this occurring! However any competitor that the QBJJC is unable to be merged is eligible to receive a 100% refund (minus transaction fees), if they choose not to remain in an unmatched bracket, and waive their rights to a medal and points. Or if there is no possible matches and no other division they can be merged into, they will receive the gold medal on top of the podium, only after they have made weight and had thier uniform inspected. For competitors in an unmatched bracket to apply to receive a 100% refund (minus transaction fees) an email must be sent to [email protected] no later than one day prior to the competition.
If I select Myself
I REALISE IT IS MY OWN RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE DIVISIONS IF I DO NOT HAVE A MATCH!
Competitors in Single Fighter Categories are now able to choose who they compete against and can change to the division they choose. Kids may go up in Age & change weight. Or they can instead decide to stay where they are and make weight to receive their gold medal on the podium in their chosen division. The choice is yours. Competitors have up to and including the day of Check & Change to decide, and or be refunded 50% of registration (minus transaction fees).
This event follows the IBJJF rules. All competitors are expected to be familiar with all these rules and the no-gi uniform requirements prior to registering for this tournament. Ignorance is not an excuse - please follow this link to see the current IBJJF rules. https://ibjjf.com/rules/
The AFBJJ calculates competitor date of births against the 31-12-2020 (or current year minus year of birth) in alignment with IBJJF rules. So, a competitor born on the 12-09-2006 will therefore compete in the 14 Year Old age group.
Weights in the drop down box are represented as net with the appropriate No Gi allowance already included in division e.g. the 42.5kg division already includes the 0.5kg allowance of the 42kg division. Competitors must be under the weight division when they step onto the official scales or they will be disqualified immediately.
Competitors should present themselves at the weigh in and No-Gi uniform inspection station no less than 30min before their scheduled match. Also important to note the schedule is dynamic and changes throughout the day, please check your times regularly to ensure that you do not miss your weigh in and become disqualified.
Junior No Gi
Due to the current AFBJJ policy regarding Junior No Gi, NO RESULTS, TEAM POINTS RANKING POINTS will be allocated for Junior No Gi divisions.
Competitors are responsible to ensure they have registered under the correct academy/team name. Once registration is completed this cannot be altered.
RISK AND INSURANCE
The competitor and/or their guardian (if under 18yrs) acknowledges and agrees that the competitor shall be responsible to obtain all or any insurance for loss and/or medical, hospital, life, income protection, personal, property, or any other risk or damage that the competitor may cause or suffer, (whether directly or indirectly) and the competitor covenants that he acknowledges that any failure by the competitor to fully insure himself against any accident, damage, injury, loss, whatsoever, howsoever arising shall be solely at the risk of the competitor.
And the competitor and/or their guardian (if under 18yrs) hereby indemnifies the QBJJC against all and any loss or damage caused directly or indirectly by the competitor’s involvement in the event or contest. Furthermore, the competitor shall make themselves available at QBJJC's discretion to undergo pre and post bout medical examinations, including drug testing, by duly qualified personal on the day of the event, at the QBJJC’s discretion and shall participate in the event solely at the QBJJC’s discretion, dependent upon the interpretation of the results of those tests at the sole discretion of the QBJJC.
All events have Qualified First Aid Medics, as well as Paramedics who can treat and give pain relief on site, so anyone injured in pain does not need to wait until an ambulance arrives, they can be treated immediately.
AWARDS & GIFTSCompetitors may only receive their medals whilst standing on the podium with the other competitors who placed in their division. If a competitor does not do this they will not receive their medal at a later date and this action may also cause a disciplinary result, potentially banning a competitor from competing in other divisions at the same tournament - due to bad sportsmanship. Competitors that are eligible for a gift, prize, T-shirt or other awards must collect them on the day of the competition. If they are not collected on the day of the tournament, the competitor is forfeits their right to all gifts, prizes, T-shirts or other awards.
REFUND POLICYOnly competitors that have selected QBJJC and are unable to be merged after Check & Change Day will be eligible to receive a full refund (minus transaction fees). This option must be taken before the commencement of the competition.
Competitors that are sick, feel unsafe, restricted, inside a "bubble" or unable to attend due to covid or other reasons have up until the Last Day to Check & Change to withdraw from the competition to receive a 50% refund. Do not enter this event if you do not agree to this term. The only way to release draws, schedule and timetables is to adhere to this term. So to avoid disappointment consider carefully if you should enter or not.
Any competitor that decides to withdraw from the competition prior to the Registration closing, may receive 50% of their fee refunded. Competitors seeking the 50% fee re-compensation must do so before the registration closes or they will be unable to. No entries will be transferred or credited. There are no refunds or credits for this event, no exceptions. You will not be entitled to a refund or credit, regardless of whether or not you participate. By paying for your registration you will be put into a bracket and be called to compete on the day of competition. You will lose your first match by disqualification if you do not show up for your match, do not make the minimum qualification for that bracket, or have an injury or other medical condition that will not allow you to compete. This also includes single competitor categories when you are unable to be merged into another division, or your opponent/s have withdrawn from your division. This also includes divisions where all other opponents withdraw, are disqualified or absent and only one competitor remains. In this instance the single competitor will gain points to be nationally recognised, as well as team points, and be awarded the Gold Medal on the podium, and declared the winner.

Division changes may be made online through smoothcomp. This must be completed on or before the Check & Change Day. Competitors can ONLY change their Age, Weight & Belt within a division and cannot swap between divisions - eg. Gi to Nogi, weight class to Absolute, or No Subs Kids Gi to Kids Gi. Competitors who are from the same team that may be matched or merged, once registration has closed will not be eligible for a refund and will be unable to have their division changed. If competitors in this situation do not compete they will be disqualified and will not receive medals, ranking & team points as well as any gifts or awards associated with that division.
