After this deadline, your registration will become final, and no further changes will be possible.

Kids brackets—In the case that your child is by themselves in the division, we will notify you by email, text or phone call to discuss your child’s options. However, in some situations where your child is by themselves in the division, another competitor might move into your child’s division, in this situation you will not hear from our team. If you do not hear from our team by email, text or a phone call it means that your child has competitor(s) in his/her division. In the case that you do not respond to the email or call within 24 hours, we will then match your child based off the age, weight, gender, and belt provided in their registration.

Juvenile Competitors and older—The SJJUKF holds you accountable to review the competitor list and contact us in case there are any changes. Competitors will have up to the Division change deadline to move in division. In case you are the only person in your division after the check date, you will receive a gold medal in that division and qualify to compete in the open weight division. If you want a match but are not sure where you want to move to, send us an email that you are willing to move and we will place you in the best available option.
