How to Pre-Register If YOU or Your TEAM Have Qualified for Sub-Only Pans
Registration is Open to ALL Competitors
Anyone can register for Sub-Only Pans, just like they would any other tournament.
However, qualified competitors compete free of charge.
You can qualify one of two ways for Sub-Only Pans:
How to Qualify for Sub-Only Pans:
All competitors have the opportunity to qualify to compete for free at Sub-Only Pans by winning 1st in your respective age category, belt level & weight-class.
Winning by Default
No competitor can qualify for worlds by default.
For example: You sign up for a Good Fight tournament. No-one else in your age category, belt level or weight class registers. This DOES not put you on the podium for Gold and qualify you for Sub-Only Pans by default. You didn't win anything. In order to qualify you MUST win something.
In the above example: this competitor would be combined into a younger age category or the next heaviest weight class. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis based upon the specific situation of the tournament.
Resolution: If a 36 yr old blue belt is combined into an adult (16-29 yr) age category and wins 1st place. The 36 yr. old would qualify for Sub-Only Pans and be able to compete in the executive (30-39 yr) age category.
Reason being: he bet the odds and qualified in a younger age bracket. But because Sub-Only Pans will bring much more competitors it makes sense to put him in his proper age category because there will be a bracket for him.
For Women: this section will become necessary for you to understand, as it's customary to have to combine, weight-classes. Again, we'll determine this on a tournament-to-tournament basis.
Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced Kids/Teens Divisions Available
All kids/teens competitors who have placed 1st in a Good Fight tournament from January through June 4, 2022 have earned a spot to compete free of charge at Sub-Only Pans.
Weight classes will be done the same way they are done at regular Good Fight tournaments. All the kids will be placed into a bracket with other kids closest to their age and weight.
We will use a 2 yr. maximum different in age and a 10 lb maximum weight difference.
Whatever age category you qualify in, is the age category you will compete in.
For example: if a 15 yr old qualifies for Pans in the teens division and then turns 16 yrs. old afterwards, he is still eligible to compete at Sub-Only Pans in the teens division.
Weigh-ins will be conducted Saturday, June 11, 2022. Please visit the Sub-Only Pans website for specific times. There are no night-before weigh-ins.
