COMPETITOR LISTS:

Competitor Lists will be viewable throughout the registration process. Please ensure your data is entered correctly by checking your registration on the registration tab above, or by clicking here.

CHANGING DIVISIONS:

On Wednesday prior to the event when registration closes, all competitors, coaches, and parents have until 3 P.M. Central time the following day to make any edits to their registrations. You can make these changes by logging into your account and modifying your registration details. At this deadline, registrations become finalized, and there will be no further changes allowed. Competitors who find themselves without another competitor in their division may choose to move themselves up in division (weight or rank) or cancel the registration for a full credit. If you have trouble changing your division or canceling, please check here for assistance.

Bracket Combinations:

After the 3 P.M. deadline on Thursday to edit registration info, competitors who do not have anyone in their division group will be combined into another appropriate division. All athletes who remain alone in their divisions once brackets are finalized at 8 P.M. Thursday have no available combinations available to them, and therefore there are no matches available for that competitor. They will receive a full coupon credit for entry to any future Submission Challenge event.

Registration cancellation policy:

In the event you must cancel your registration, a full event credit will be provided automatically via smooth comp. The cancellation deadline is by Thursday 3pm before event date. After the deadline to edit registration (3 P.M. Thursday prior to the event), all registrations are considered final with no event credit available. Credits are issued when you log into your account and cancel your event registration. Coupon codes are viewable in the “MY Account” area of SmoothComp. Competitors whose opponents no showed or withdraw from their division leaving them without a match on event day will receive a full coupon credit if there are no other appropriate divisions available.

BRACKETS AND SCHEDULE:

Friday Afternoon before the tournament, event brackets and a schedule will be released. You will be able to locate both on the event page brackets and schedule tab. All Submission Challenge tournaments feature 2 large flat screen T.V.s where the event schedule is displayed. The referee at your mat will also make a courtesy call for you to come to the mat if you haven’t already presented yourself for the bracket. Please be at the mat on time for your matches. We ask that you make sure to be present in the venue at least 60 minutes prior your division start time as well, fast submissions allow us to get a head start on certain divisions. You can also tell when your matches are coming up by checking the tab on your mobile device during the competition: FIND MY START TIME

WEIGH-INS:

Weigh-ins begin at 8 A.M. the day of the tournament. Athletes may wear whatever appropriate attire they choose to weigh-in with. You ARE NOT required to weigh in with you Gi. If an athlete cannot make weight they will be moved up to the next available weight class, if there are no athletes in higher weight classes you will be disqualified. We do this to ensure the integrity of the brackets. Registration may be edited by the athlete until the Thursday prior to the event at 3 P.M. Central time.

RULES:

Submission Challenge runs a double elimination format with an additional bracket for 3rd place if necessary . We do this to ensure that our competitors are able to participate in as many matches as possible while still running a timely event. The Submission Challenge utilizes a slightly modified EBI Overtime ruleset. Full rules for the event including legal/illegal techniques, weight classes, and age groups can be found at rules.

MATCH LENGTH:

Adult Regulation time: Standard 8 Min Match
Teen Regulation time: 6 min matches at all skill levels
Youth ages 9-12 regulation time: 4 Min matches all skill levels
Youth ages 4-8 regulation time: 4 min matches at all skill levels.

WAYS A MATCH CAN BE WON:

Win via Submission victory within regulation time.
Win in Overtime: victory by submission, fastest submission time, or fastest escape time.
Win by opponent disqualification.
Win via opponent forfeiture.

Submission is based upon physical tapping, a verbal tap, or yelling during a submission attempt. If an opponent must have the match stopped for any injury related incident or any other reason beyond control that does not warrant any disqualifications, the opponent will have 5 mins to return to the match or they will have to forfeit the match.
