Children 3-4 years old will compete in a grappling game. The Game will consist of two 1 min rounds. One child will start on their back, the other inside the guard. The objective is for the bottom player to stand up or sweep his opponent and for the top player to pass the guard and establish a position (side mount, mount, reverse mount, or rear mount).

(Full Division)

Matches are 2 mins in length starting from the feet with no submissions. Points will be awarded for specific positions, refer to the Scoring section. In the case of a child getting pinned for more than 15 seconds, the referee will give a warning for movement. If the competitors are unable to move the children will get restarted on the feet. This is to not only encourage movement but to prevent the children from being frustrated with not being able to escape a position. 

1 point is awarded for each successful attempt. After 1 min the roles are reversed. The child with the most points wins. This will be done in a round robin format.

Additional Information:

Points will be awarded for specific positions, refer to the Scoring section. In the case of a child getting pinned for more that 15 seconds, the referee will give a warning for movement. Brackets will be made when the registration is closed. This will allow us to maximize each child's mat time and opportunity to compete as well as stay on schedule as close as possible. If there are, for example, only 3 people in a division we will allow their division to go twice. This will give them a minimum of 4 matches. With time permitting we will give every child the MOST amount of matches and time for experience and fun.

Our goal is to give every child the chance to compete and gain experience and most of all to have fun!!

Reserve Your Spot!
