How to qualify
On Monday, 19th April at 9am, the first round of invites will go live to the public. To qualify you must rank at the top of your specific weight class that you have competed in. Depending on the weight class will determine how many invites are sent out. As we have far more competitors in some weight classes compared to others, each weight class will have its own cut-off point.
Competitiveness is also taken into consideration for each given weight class. The qualifying cut-off point is subject to change as time moves on and classes become more competitive and/or larger.
To view the current rankings please use the link below. With this link you will see each weight class has a green line indicating the cut-off point needed to qualify for the first round of invites.

There will be four rounds of invitations:
Round 1: The first round of invitations will go out on Monday, 19th April at 9am. Only those who qualify will receive an invitation to Round 1.

Round 2: Wednesday, 21st April at 9am, Round 2 of invitations will go live. Depending on how many places are still available for each given weight class/day will determine how many invitations are sent out.

Once a weight class is full, we will create a waitlist for those wishing to compete and who may have just missed out.
It is the responsibility of the athlete to be aware when invitations are sent out.
Those who fail to pay attention and miss their invitation and do not accept the invitation in time, may miss out on their chance to compete. Details on how invitations are sent out and registering for those who receive invitations will be announced at a later date.
