Other things:
* Adults – If you dont make weight, you will be DQd. (this is a long standing rule, we expect you do be adults and register properly)
* Kids – we have some weight allowance only. We will address any large discrepancies on a case by case basis.
* If you need to pull out or not able to continue to compete, please let me know! (this happens a lot of for some who do GI, but decide not to do NOGI).
* Please use the TV schedules to find out when you are up, and head to that mat when it says you are on deck!

We have a long day Saturday and want to keep everything going smooth!

New for 2019! – Updated kids divisions

To better serve our growing kids competitors, we have created new kid weight divisions in 10lb increments.

When registering a kid, select the appropriate weight group (-55,-65,-75…), if you feel they may be on the edge between two make your best judgement at the time and you can add a note with the entry to say what their weight is at the time of registration.

All parents and coaches can log in and manage the weight division, skill and age category at any time!

We encourage parents to check in with their kids weight and adjust their entry accordingly.

After registration deadline if the competitor is alone in their division there are three possibilities:

  1. The parent or coach can log in, and move the competitor up an age, skill or weight division.  In doing so you can add a NOTE in the entry that this has been done or add any additional information.
  2. The parent or coach may cancel the registration before athlete check deadline for a full refund.
  3. If the competitor is left alone in their division, we may merge them to the nearest division by default.

Should the brackets be published and any competitor is left alone, we will refund those entries the following week.

If you have any questions, please email us info@manitobajiujitsu.com

Kids registrations

In order for us to make the best and fairest brackets for kids, we have all kids registrations entered under the nearest 5lb increments.     We will then sort the kids to our best abilities to the nearest weight, age and skill.

The live registration list is just who’s registered and not the brackets.
