Respect Rule

This event has a zero tolerance policy regarding inappropriate behavior by coaches, parents/guardians, spectators and competitors.

All in attendance must show some restraint when their students or team mates are fighting. There will be competitors and spectators of all ages at this event and we are here to set an example.

Any swearing, inappropriate gestures, violence (towards person or property) or berating the officials (regardless of any decisions they make) will not be tolerated.

If this happens, the referee/organiser has the right to disqualify that competitor, or to ask the person concerned to leave the area. If those concerned do not comply with the referee/organisers request the competitor will be disqualified from the event.

If a coach, parent or team mate encroaches onto the mat, or past any barriers that are in place, or man handles an official in any way, that person will be asked to leave the venue and the whole team may not be permitted to take any further part in the competition.

If the parents, coach or the competitors are not happy with the brackets we will issue a refund.

Competition Notes:

All weights are with a No Gi Uniform (shorts & rash guard) on.
Male Competitors over 36 can enter either the Adult or Senior category but not both.
If weight categories have to be combined due to lack of numbers you will be contacted and given the choice of changing weight category and/or age category. If you are not happy with moving you will be given a refund.
