Kids’ Weigh Ins and Deadlines

Kids will weigh in with their uniforms on before entering the mat area on the day of their event (Sunday April 30th). Missed weight of more than 2 lbs can disqualify a child from winning a medal. The child will still be able to compete in a consolation match, however. Parents, please weigh your child on an accurate scale prior to registration, in order to enter them into the proper division. It will help the tournament run much more smoothly. In order to properly bracket the kids, we will close registration at the end of day on Wednesday, April 26.
