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 night before 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. 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
The Friday weigh-in is open to all competitors, children, teens and adults. The weigh-ins are from 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM. If you weigh-in on Friday you do not need to weigh-in again on Saturday (Adults & Teens 14 & Older) or Sunday (Children 13 & Under).

SUNDAY CHECK-IN AND WEIGH-IN TIMES
Children (13 & Younger) compete on Sunday. You will only be able to access the tournament room during the session for which you are scheduled. Children competitors (Adult & Teenhave a different link) can go here https://naga.smoothcomp.com/en/event/6240/schedule/matchlist to see what time your specific division(s) is scheduled for and what time your weigh in starts. Accurate weigh in times will be listed on Friday, February 25, 2022.     

GET YOUR GRAPPLING GEAR AT THE EVENT
NAGA is bringing a truckload of grappling gear (board shorts, bi bags, rash guards, t-shirts, hats, patches, skull caps, stickers, dog tags, etc.) in children and adults sizes, for males and females. Check out the huge selection of gear and apparel at the NAGA event.

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).  

COACH & PARENT CHAIRS
NAGA provides 2 chairs on each side of every score table, 1 for the coach of the competitor and the other for a family member or friend to shoot video or take photographs. Please note, no one else is allowed inside the barricades during the matches.

EVENT MEDIC
All NAGA events have a trained professional medic on sight. The medic will be visible and accessible to all in attendance. The medic is typically located between Rings 1 & 2.
