We know it can be stressful for beginners and children… well actually it probably is stressful to everyone, but we want to offer some of the competitors a chance to get a second match if the first one doesn’t go your way.
Double Elimination matches will be only in the Gi divisions for the following competitors, No Gi will be Single Elimination:
All Children and Teens
Novice Adult Gi
Executive Gi (35years +) Novice only
We hope that this will encourage more of the beginners to come out and give competing a try. If you have a friend/training partner/teammate that falls in the above divisions, make sure they don’t miss out on this great opportunity. The adult Novice Division is for those with 9 months of experience or less, so next year they won’t get this opportunity.
We do ask that everyone is patient with the event. We try to schedule to allow for the Double Elimination, but is challenging. We are happy to continue to offer this and not raise the price to compete… but more about that soon.
If you would like to help with the event please email me to offer your help or just ask day of. We need timekeeper/scorekeepers, referees and service people. Any time you can donate is very much appreciated.
Good luck in training,
