Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When and where do I weigh in at?


You may weigh in the day of the tournament as early as 7 am. at the event. Weigh ins will go on all day.


Q:  What are the times all about?


For each competitor we have set a designated time for each division, age and ring.  We guarantee we will never go early and we run on time 99% of the time.  This eliminates the all day long wait.  Many times competitors lose their advantage because they do not know when to warm up, or warm up and then their division gets postponed.  We want all of our competitors to be fresh and we value their time.
