Six weeks before event - Brackets w/no fighters will Close.
You may still register in brackets with fighters in it. Ages MUST match up. Four weeks before event, we work on 'matching' fighters with no opponent. This may include asking two fighters two meet in the middle at a 'catch weight' or moving up to a higher experience division.
Two Weeks - ALL brackets with ONE fighter MUST be closed out.
JUNIORS WILL BE SEPARATED BY AGE AS WE GET CLOSER.
FOR SAFETY AND FAIRNESS - We stay within a 24 month age spread. Our preference is to not go past 18 months but will go up to 24 months if necessary.
The brackets will start out at: 5-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, 16-17. However, the ages will be dependent on the registered fighters. We may match up at 7-8 or 11-12, for example.
