You can change your competitors weight up until registration closes on June 2.
In future events, we will begin using set weight classes in order to develop a ranking system for Youth Grappling League overall champions and athlete rank. Future events will also require YGL membership cards. Membership will give athletes, coaches and spectators access to YGL ranking system and premium website features, discounted event pricing and many other additional privileges. This event will NOT require YGL membership. You will be able to purchase YGL membership cards at the event for a discounted price. Stay tuned for more information regarding YGL membership!!!!
This event will feature point only matches for the younger competitors. This is an effort to create a safe and fun environment for younger and/or less experienced competitors to be able to get tournament experience and ensure the fundamental positional strategies are mastered before introducing submissions. Please review the rules section to verify what division you would like your competitor in. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
