July 10 in Virginia: US Grappling’s Junior Championships
US Grappling will host our annual Junior Championships in Ashland, VA (just north of Richmond) on Saturday, July 10th, 2010 at Patrick Henry High school.
This tournament will be DOUBLE ELIMINATION! All kids will get at least two matches in every division.
Juvenile divisions at US Grappling events now use the Madison Bracketing System. There will no longer be preset weight classes for juveniles. Competitors will be divided by weight, experience, and age (whenever possible).
Using the Madison system means children and teens will be less likely to cut weight since they won’t know the weight classes in advance.
Competitors can also register and weigh in Friday night.
Weigh ins will be held from 8 AM to 10 AM for all juvenile competitors.
All competitors that pre-register (and pay) by Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 8 PM will receive a free t-shirt!
