We aim to offer each athlete a chance to fight at least 3 matches per day, so we might have to combine some classes if there are too few participants. We strive to get at least three (3) athletes per class, but sometimes only two (2) is possible. The mixing of classes will primarily be based on the athlete's weight and secondarily their age. For kids we might also have to mix belt colours.
HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR KIDS
We will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.
1. We will combine weightclasses within the same age and belt (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)
2. We will combine weightclasses within the same age but combine belts
3. We will move to another weightclass but with the same belt
4. We will move to another weightclass and/or weight and age class
5. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weightclass and give a refund
HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR JUVENILES
We require at least two fighters in one group for each weightclass. We will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.
1. We will combine two weightclasses within the same age (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)
2. We will combine two weightclasses with the age group below
3. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weightclass and give a refund
