The Gathering 9th September 2023


How does the weigh-in work?

The weigh-in’s occur just before competitors step on the mat to compete. A competitors division will be called to ‘Mat 2’ for example and they will weigh in then.

Competitors will weigh on wearing their Gi (no rash guard underneath) and must be below the maximum weight for their nominated division.

There is 0.3 allowance for the difference between scales, however as a general rule, please try to be under the maximum weight.

Being over weight will forfeit entry into the division; we will not be moving people on the day.

Is there an entry fee for spectators?

There is a small fee for spectators.
Adults (16 yrs +) - $15
Children (6-15yrs) - $5
Children under 6 - Free
Family Pass (2 adults + 2 children) - $25
