Please make sure that you are in the correct weight division. You can not change divisions, if you do not make your designated division. No changes will be accepted in the tournament day, no refund.

OTHERS:

Athletes will receive a complimentary event t-shirt which they should pick up at the event. All shirts must be picked up at the event’s shirt booth. AZBJJL is not responsible for shipping forgotten t-shirts.

Each team can only have two athletes in the same division bracket (of age/weight/belt). If your team has more than 2 athletes in the same division, the professor needs to email [email protected] prior to athlete correction deadline in order to create different teams for the same academy. If there are more than two athletes and the coach does not contact for them to be assigned the AZBJJL will choose the first two registered athletes for the A team scoring. This rule does not prevent you from registering for the event. 

AZBJJL reserves the right to close registration when we reach full capacity, or on the day of the appointed event registration deadline, whichever comes first.

Before each fight, athletes will be asked to show their valid form of photo identification (ID) to the officials(Adults only). Make sure you have it on hand
