Attention: Only age divisions 10 years and older will operate with the submission only format. While Proving Grounds is a proponent of the submission only format, we believe that it is important that children are able to learn and showcase their fundamental skills without the danger of injury. These positional players will be the “Finishers” of tomorrow. It is for this reason that the kids 9 & under divisions, who are not above white belt, will be scored by positional dominance and take downs only. If one competitor scores 21 points before the time limit is reached, that competitor will be declared the winner. In order to gain as much experience as possible, these brackets will be run in the round robin format.
