We try to accommodate as many athletes as possible in our events comfortably, but there is a limit on the number of athletes in order to guarantee a high quality event. Irish Masters BJJ reserves the right to close registration when we reach full capacity, or on the day of the appointed event registration deadline, whichever comes first. We strongly suggest that athlete registration is finalized before making any travel arrangements .Any false information provided during registration such as, but not limited to, DOB, may lead to immediate disqualification. Such actions are subject to suspension or even banishment from future events.
All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable. However, athletes can contact Irish Masters BJJ by the Athlete Correction Deadline to be removed from the brackets without refund. Irish Masters BJJ cannot guarantee the athletes will show up for the tournament. Therefore, Irish Masters BJJ will not refund athletes who end up without a match due to a non-show for his / her opponent.
Athletes who are alone in their division are eligible to receive a full refund of the registration if they contact email@example.com and request to withdraw their name from the competition on the day of the tournament’s Registration Checkday, before 5 PM (event local time). If the athlete remains alone in the division by 5 PM, the refund will be processed. See the Key Dates Tab for these important dates*If an athlete’s division becomes populated with an additional athlete(s) on or before the Registration Checkday, the athlete will remain in their division and will no longer qualify for a refund. For more detailed information regarding athletes who are alone in their division, please refer to the “Athlete Alone in the Division” section found below.
Athlete Alone in the Division
Posted below are the three options for single-bracket competitors. Single-bracket competitors must inform Irish Masters BJJ via email which option they choose by the 5 PM (event local time) on the event’s Registration Checkday – firstname.lastname@example.org In the case that the division becomes populated with additional athletes during the Registration Checkday period, these options will no longer apply and the athlete will remain in the original division.
OPTION #1 – Athletes may stay in their current weight class, make weight, and receive the 1st place medal for the division. Once the athlete has had their weight and uniform checked, they will then be eligible to register for the Open Class division in the case that the age and belt division offers an Open Class division.
OPTION #2 – Move up or down in age and/or weight division.By moving up or down in age and/or weight, athletes may be paired with an opponent. However, Irish Masters BJJ cannot guarantee that an opponent will be available. Athletes may select a second change option in case their first choice of division change is not available.
Athletes can make their selection(s) after viewing the Athlete’s List by Division. The decision to move up or down in age and/or weight should be made solely at the athlete’s discretion. If athletes choose OPTION 2 to change divisions, please be aware that athletes will be required to make weight for the new division. In order to request to change divisions, athletes will need to specify the exact division that they wish to be moved to. Athletes can specify a first and second choice (limited to the divisions available for the tournament).
Master division athletes: Athletes can move up or down in age by specifying an age-eligible division determined by the athlete’s birth year. For example, an athlete eligible to compete in Master 2 may move to Master 1 but may not move into Master 3 unless they are eligible.
OPTION #3 – Withdraw from the tournament if alone at 5 PM on the Registration Checkday. Athletes who are alone in their division on the Registration Checkday are eligible to receive a full refund of their tournament registration fee if they contact email@example.com PRIOR to the end of the Registration Checkday deadline. Refunds will be processed after 5 PM (event local time) if the athlete is still alone after the Checkday period.
Each team can only have two athletes in the same division bracket of age/weight/belt. If your team has more than two athletes in the same division, the Professor needs to email Irishmasters22@gmail.com
Athletes from the exact same team will not fight against each other before the final match, except in a three athletes bracket.
