Rules

This tournament series was added to the Powerlifting US Open event out of sheer love and appreciation for the grappling arts. The rules, prizes and organization was created FOR you, BY seasoned, world class athletes with our myriad of experiences in mind- the good and the bad. We have tried to make an event that is a GREAT experience with plenty of mat time for kids and excellent opportunities for adults too! 

Wrestling will follow USAW protocols and is a USA sanctioned event.

Family Discount

Why: We love families who compete together! Family time on tournament trips is half the fun in competing, so we want to incentivize some memory making! 

What: If you are registering more than one athlete in your family, you will receive a $10 discount on the 2nd (3rd + all additional under the same household) registration fee. Use code: FAMILY

Who: Families come in all different ways, but here's what we mean- Mom & Son, Dad & Daughter, siblings, ANY couple with the same address* on ID or mail. (Many a time we wished there was a couple's discount, so voila!) 

How:  Upon checking out, enter (in caps) the code: FAMILY                 In order for the registration system to recognize that you are registering multiple athletes to redeem the family discount, please register all of your athletes at this time.  We are unable to apply the discount after checkout has been completed. 

On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Athlete" - please click on this link to ensure that everyone in your household is registered within the same order so the discount can be applied.

***Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your Family’s discounted rates. ***

 *please bring ID to weigh-ins for address verification
