TNT will only track points for “Qualifier” tournaments! Any errors or points earned must be submitted before the November 2019 deadline. A competitor can accumulate points in Gi, No Go and Continuous Sparring. All TNT “Qualifier” points from each TNT events will be posted at www.TournamentTiger.com.
Be the #1 Ranked in Texas gets the best seed for State!!! Competitor that earns and accumulates the most points at a “Qualifier” tournament, will have the #1 Top Ranked Seed in their division for State! All competitors earning the #1 Top Rank Seed in grappling will fight last in a double elimination for 1st place. This means there will be a run-off in every division to determine “one” winner. The winner of the run-off will then compete against the #1 Top Rank Seed for 1st place. In other words, if you competed in more TNT Leagues (conferences) you will be honored as the #1 ranked competitor in TNT and guaranteed a 2nd place at the State Finals! We will be awarding all TNT Qualifiers with an award at TNT STATE FINALS, all competitors must attend the Saturday night finals beginning at 7pm to receive the award.
