This is the first of many Submission Grappling Tournaments to come in the "Jersadelphia" area! The first will take place at 3 Larwin Road, in Cherry Hill, NJ. With such a large talent pool in the Deleware Valley, we are expecting some exciting competition!
Championship belts will be awarded to the winners of each advanced division and for the absolute division! 2nd and 3rd place will receive medals. All other divisions will be awarded medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. We will also be hosting superfights to be announced. We will be using rules and scoring similar to that of "Grapplers Quest" circuit. (Slight Modifications. See rules page). There will be a plaque awarded to the 1st place team.
We will have female divisions but will not have details for these until next week. If you are a female interested in competing, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your weight and skill level. Thank you.
Registration Fee: $40 Pre- Registration $35 (note: Pre-registration is highly recommended since there will be a limit to the amount of competitors at the tournament)
Please e-mail email@example.com for a pre-registration form. Just type pre reg in the subject line. There is no garauntee there will be space available the day of, so it is a good idea to register ahead of time to ensure your spot and to save some money.
Spectators are welcome. Spectator Entrance Fee: $5
This will be a fun, exciting and safe tournament. Competitive of course, but no malicious intent will be tolerated.

Approximate Start Times: Key word is "approximate":) Of course, everything depends on the number of competitors and that can't be calculated to the T. So, this is our best assesment. Expect the first division to kick off at 11am which would be the Men's Advanced, Lightweight Division. After the advanced divisions, the intermediates will go. Intermediate competitors can expect to compete after 1pm. Again, not set in stone. Pro-Division Start time is to be announced (note: all other divisions will break during the Pro-Division). The day will finish out with the beginners which I expect to start by 3pm. Coaches....please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Look forward to more Pro-Divisions for other weight classes in the near future! Train hard and look forward to seeing you there!
