We will be continuing to use Smoothcomp. Those of you who have used Smoothcomp in the past will easily be able to log in to your account and register. Those of you new to Smoothcomp will appreciate the ease of which you can create an account to register, change weight, stay up to date on the registered competitor list, see your brackets once cast & even have live schedule updates for your mat the day of the event.
Master Divisions: We encourage all qualified athletes to take advantage of out Master 1-2 (for athletes 30 years & over)
Master 3-4 (for athletes 40 years & over) Master 5 (for athletes 50 years & over)
How do I qualify? By age. Your age is the only qualifying factor. It has nothing to do with BJJ experience.
What’s the difference? You will be bracketed with athletes closer to your age.
Master 1-2 Black Belts, Brown Belts, Purple Belts & Advanced matches are 6 Minutes.
Master 1-2 Blue Belt, White Belt Intermediate and Beginner matches are 5 minutes.
All Master 3-4 & Master 5 matches are 5 minutes long.
If I qualify but don’t sign up in a Master division, will you place me in that bracket? No. It is the athlete’s responsibility
to sign up in the bracket they want to compete in.
Competitor Lists: Competitor Lists can be viewed at the registrations tab on the event page.
We advise you to login on the last day of registration and check your details along with the competitor lists to make any necessary changes.
Warm Up Mats & Changing Rooms: Dedicated mats for warm up will be provided both days. There are no lockers at this location & no showers.
Medical: There will be trained First Aid medics on site.
Crowd Control: Spectators are welcome to view the event from outside the barricades
Photography: You are welcome to take photos and videos from the spectator areas. We have many photographers on staff taking pictures from inside the barricades. Podium Photos are taken of each division. Photos can be found shortly after the event on the 'Past Events' page at www.leapllc.com/past-events.
Coaching Credentials: Coaches with credentials will have access to the mats both Adult and Youth day.
As a reminder Coaches' bands are free. Entrance to the event as a Coach is free, as long as you register. We do not, have not, and will not sell coaches bands.
However, if your team does not register your coaches, each unregistered coach will be charged the $10 entrance fee before they can receive their band. The reason behind this is that we have had some issues in the past with parents and over eager "helpers" taking the coaches bands before the coaches have the opportunity to check in.
For this same reason, there will be no exchanging bands during the event without both the band and the Head Coach there for the exchange.
Teams that have multiple locations please make sure to register each location independently. For team awards all points will be combined but for coaching credentials to get your full set of credentials each location must register their own coaches.
The credential tiers are:
1 athlete = 1 coach credential
2 or 3 athletes = 2 credentials
4 to 8 athletes = 4 credentials
9 to 12 athletes = 6 credentials
13 to 16 athletes = 8 credentials
16 to 20 athletes = 10 credentials
21 or more athletes = 12 credentials

Youth competitors weighing above their registered weight could be disqualified and NOT RECEIVE A REFUND.
The Youth & Junior brackets will be made based on the submitted weights of registered competitors. Our general rule of thumb is within 10lbs & 2 years. We have found being able to tailor make the brackets allows for better competition/experience for all competitors. Please never have a youth competitor cut weight! If your child is in a bracket that doesn’t fall within our usual standard, you will receive a call and we will work out something that is best for everyone. Sometimes the best thing is a refund.
Whenever possible we try to separate the boys and girls starting age 10. However, we will not sacrifice the quality of a bracket to do so. We have ways to build brackets to give each athlete a fair chance to compete.
Adult Men, Women & Masters: IBJJF Weight Classes for Adult Gi & No Gi. Competitors will weigh dressed to compete.
Adult Gi Competitors wearing gi & belt
Adult No Gi dressed to compete (not only in undergarment)
