Other Special Rules: We will do our best to separate competitors from the same school, however in the event that competitors are from the same school, and the coach does not wish them to compete against each other, a winner must be declared & decided upon in the staging area, prior to competitors being sent to the mat. This will automatically give one student a loss for that round, which could result in elimination based on prior matches. No matches will result in a tie. Referee’s reserve the right to stop the match at any time. A decision involving a referee's judgement is not to be questioned. We want this to be fun, safe, and exciting experience for everyone!

Coaches Etiquette: You are allowed to coach your athlete as much as you'd like, however NO derogatory or disrespectful remarks about any other competitor, coach, team, referee, or staff member will be allowed at Any time. As a coach, it is up to you to demonstrate respect for all different teachings and styles, and your students will follow. A decision involving a referee's judgement is not to be questioned. Technical questions (points not awarded, points awarded to wrong competitor, or other scoreboard issue) can be asked politely & respectively, however the referee makes the final decision.


Spectator Etiquette: All spectators are welcome & encouraged to cheer on their athlete, however we wil not tolerate any booing or disrespectful remarks towards other competitors, coaches, spectators, referee's, or other tournament staff.
