WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET TO THE EVENT

Every competitor will check-in at our front desk when they arrive. Competitors will receive a card which summarizes the divisions they are competing in and the number of spectators they have pre-purchased. Competitors will then proceed to the weigh-in area to get weighed in. Children and Teens must be weighed-in by 9:30 AM in order to compete that day. If competitors 17 yrs. & under arrive after this time they will be removed from the tournament. Adults must be weighed in 1 hour before their estimated start time which will be available the Friday of the tournament. Once weighed-in, competitors will pick up their free NAGA gift and then be interviewed by one of our experienced referees. The referee will make sure competitors are in the correct skill level(s). At this time, we will also share the size of your division(s). If you are the only competitor in your bracket, the referee will discuss what options are available and move you to the agreed upon bracket.

FRIDAY WEIGH-IN TIMES

All competitors are given the option to check-in and weigh-in on Friday from 6 - 6:30 PM. If you do check-in and weigh-in on Friday evening you do NOT have to do it again on Saturday when you arrive. You only need to weigh-in once and you weigh-in without the gi.

SATURDAY CHECK-IN AND WEIGH-IN TIMES

Children and Teens 17 and under MUST be registered by 9:00 AM and weighed-in by 9:30 AM.
Adult Women competitors need to be checked-in by 9:00 AM and weighed-in by 9:30 AM.
ADULT Male competitors must be checked-in 90 minutes before their scheduled start time which can be found when the brackets are released on Friday evening.

Anyone who arrives after these listed times will not be allowed to compete. For those who miss these deadlines, a credit will be issued that can be used for any future NAGA event (within one year of the event date), no exceptions.

MULTIPLE DIVISIONS FOR CHILDREN & TEENS

Children and teen competitors who want to compete in an additional higher weight class or older age group division can do so for $20 per division. You can add one additional weight class or age group per division type (no-gi or gi) for a total of 4 divisions. Competitors cannot do multiple skill levels.
As an example: a beginner 11 year old 85 pound competitor could add the 90-99.9 weight class OR the 12-13 year old category (not both). They cannot add the intermediate skill level. They can do this for no-gi, gi, or both. It is $20 for each division added. If they wanted to go up in weight for no-gi and up in age for gi (or vice-versa) we can accommodate that request.
If you would like to add an additional division (or two), call the office at 860-295-0403 or email [email protected] The following information is required in order to add the extra division(s): which tournament, the competitor’s name, up age or up weight, no-gi/gi/both, payment method (credit card, PayPal, Stripe), and the email address (only needed if you are calling in). NAGA will email you an invoice with a link to pay for the extra divisions. Once payment is made we will copy the competitor into the additional division(s).
