REGISTRATION/BRACKETING ***NEW SYSTEM***
For this event NAGA will be using the Smoothcomp tournament management system. If you have competed in a Smoothcomp event in the past you can login to Smoothcomp with those login credentials. If this is the first time you are using Smoothcomp you will need to create an account with them. If you have competed in a previous NAGA event using the TourneyGuru system, you will not be able to register for this event through that system.

WHAT IS SMOOTHCOMP?
Smoothcomp is a tournament management system that allows you to register and pay for an event online. The system will generate brackets and at the event keep you updated on what time and which mat you will be competing, all in real time. We are excited to be using this system and giving our customers a better overall tournament experience at NAGA.

REGISTRATION OPTIONS
NAGA has three registration options: Pre-Registration Online, Late Online Registration, and Final Registration. Details for each registration type are below.

If you are nto sure yet if you are going to compete you can still register for the event and choose the pay later optin before checking out. This will allow your registration to be associated for the event (though it is listed as incomplete) and will make completing your registration easier once you are ready to pay. Please note that the registration price charged is based on the date when you pay not the date when you added your registration to the event.

REGISTRATIONS ON EVENT DAY ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTED
To help expedite the event and give our grapplers and their fans a better experience, we have decided to no longer allow day of registration. We will continue to allow competitors to register and pay until the end of the Friday night weigh-in session. If you are not paid (approved in the system) by this time you will not be able to compete in the event.

NEW MANDATORY CHECK-IN TIMES
In order to run the event efficiently it is extremely important that competitors are checked-in and weighed-in by the cutoff times listed below. Competitors who arrive after the listed cutoff time will not be allowed to compete and will be given a credit to compete in a future event. There are no exceptions.
Saturday: Children (13 & under) competitors need to be checked-in by 9:00 AM and weighed-in by 9:30 AM. Any competitor who misses these times will not be allowed to compete at this event.
Sunday: Teens (14-17) and adult women competitors need to be checked-in by 9:00 AM and weighed-in by 9:30 AM. Male adults, you need to be checked in one hour prior to your scheduled division start time. Your division start time can be found Friday night on the Smoothcomp website. Any competitor who misses these times will not be allowed to compete at this event.

All competitors have the option to weigh-in on Friday but they must still be at the event at the check-in time listed above. Please check the event schedule for Friday’s timeframe.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET TO THE EVENT
You will go to the Pre-registration desk to collect your registration cards. You will then go to the Referee Interview table. The referee will make sure you are in the correct division, approve you in Smoothcomp then send you to weigh-in. You cannot weigh-in without checking in at this table.

You will be able to check your estimated match start time by logging into your account on the Smoothcomp website.

Spectator tickets can be purchased at the Pay Today desk. Adding additional divisions on event day may be possible (example: someone decides they want to now do Gi in addition to No-Gi). Please inquire at the Pay Today desk at the event.

FAMILY RATES
We understand it can be expensive having multiple family members train and then compete.  NAGA does offer some relief to families who have multiple family members compete in the same NAGA event.  The discount only applies to competitors, not spectators. When registering a family, you will register each competitor then enter a coupon code at the payment screen. For 2 family members the discount is $20, 3 members is $40, 4 members $60, and so on.
FAMILY RATES ARE ONLY VALID FOR THE FOLLOWING: A parent paying for themselves and their minor child or children (under the age of 18). A parent paying for their minor children (under the age of 18).
In order to obtain a family discount you must call our office at 860.295.0403, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9AM and 5PM EST. We will provide you the code. If you reach our voicemail please leave your name, number, the event you are registering for, and the number of family members competing. We will leave you a message with the code if we reach your voicemail.
In Smoothcomp, you need to register and pay for each competitor individually. Please enter the coupon code only into the final registration, do not use it multiple times.
