December 12 in North Carolina: GrappleMania
GrappleMania offers divisions for men, women, men over 30, plus children and teen divisions.
Children and Teen division at US Grappling events now use the Madison Bracketing System. There will no longer be preset weight classes for Children and Teens. At the end of weigh ins, the children and teens will be sorted by weight. Brackets will then be made by grouping them into sets of 4 or 8 (depending on turnout). Children will be divided by weight, experience, and age (whenever possible). Divisions for children and teens will be run as double elimination brackets, ensuring everyone gets at least two matches in each division. Using the Madison system means children and teens will no longer cut weight since they won’t know the weight classes in advance.
Saturday weigh ins will be held from 8 AM to 10 AM for anyone competing in no gi divisions, and will be extended to noon for anyone that will only be competing in the gi.
