JUNIOR GIRLS NOVICE CLASS
YDL Rules - Ages 5-11 (12 Optional)
Regular Rules - Ages 12-17
NOTICE: We will break up brackets by age when we close out empty brackets.
Approximately 6 weeks before event, we will go through and close out brackets that do not have at least one fighter registered in it. You may still register, but only in brackets that are still open. Approximately 4 weeks before the event, we will begin working on 'matching' up the fighters that do not already have an opponent. This may include asking two fighters two meet in the middle at a 'catch weight' or moving up to a higher experience division. ALL brackets with only ONE fighter registered MUST be closed out BY 2 weeks out to allow us to finalize belts and awards.
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 13-14, for example.
