Weight Brackets: All Fighters! *
PLEASE READ BEFORE SELECTING YOUR WEIGHT BRACKET: PLEASE double check the weight you are registering for! We will TRANSFER a fighter at NO CHARGE until March 17th, after that only within 24 hours after the registration has posted. Double check your registration once it has posted for accuracy! If it is incorrect, contact us immediately so we can get it fixed. If you have not double checked the online post and you registered for the incorrect bracket or need to be moved later due to not being able to make weight, you will have to pay a "Transfer fee" to have your registration updated. If you register in a 'full or closed' bracket, you will be placed in the next logical spot. This may be a higher weight bracket or a higher division. No Refunds for not taking the time to make sure your bracket has openings. You may be able to transfer in later if there are enough drops (no guarantee). You will not be required to pay the transfer fee. "Overflows" will be moved back in according to their registration date.

The more information you can provide, the easier to make sure we have your record correct.

READ AND CONFIRM: Refund Policy *
Once I have paid my registration fee, if I decide to withdraw voluntarily, I forfeit any monies paid. I will submit written proof by military personnel for a refund or credit (my choice) if drop is due to Military involvement. If drop is due to severe, debilitating injury received inside or outside of the gym during normal training and daily activities, I will be issued a credit to be used at a future event if I submit valid documentation from a physician and copies of tests to support the injury such as MRI, Xray or CTScan. If I cannot supply documentation, I will forfeit my registration fee and not receive a credit. If my injury is sustained during a fight that I participated in less than 6 weeks prior to the tournament's dates, I will forfeit any monies paid and will not receive a credit for future use. I understand if I am in a two man bracket and drop under two weeks before the event or do not show up ("no show") that I will receive no refund or credit for any monies paid.

Required
READ AND CONFIRM: Brackets & Placement *
I understand that my spot in the bracket is NOT GUARANTEED until I have completed ALL required steps including submission of this form and payment. I understand if by the time I have completed all required steps and my first choice of brackets is filled up, I can move to a 'stand by' position in that bracket or I can move to another bracket/division that still has openings. If I am placed in an 'over flow' bracket due to my original selection being full, and something becomes available, I can request to be moved back to my original space and I will be moved at no cost.
Required
READ AND CONFIRM: Transfers *
Prior to the tournament, I understand if I need to transfer to another weight bracket, I will pay a transfer fee of $35. (Complimentary transfers until March 18). If I need to go up to a higher division (novice to B, B to A) or the TBA-SA asks me to move, it will be done at no charge to me. At weigh ins, if I cannot make weight and a spot is available in a bracket/division better suited, I can move once all weigh ins have been completed by paying the transfer fee of $50. I understand, if I show up at weigh ins and cannot make weight, I will either have to withdraw and receive no refund, or I will pay the transfer fee of $50 and move into a different bracket. If I have paid my registration fee, am listed as an 'alternate' and show up ready to fight, but I am unable to fight due to my bracket still being full, I may choose to move to an acceptable bracket that still has an opening and willl not be charged the 'transfer fee'.
Required
READ AND CONFIRM: Single Fighters & Match Ups for 2 man brackets *
On May 5, 2019, brackets with no fighters will be closed and cannot be re-opened. A bracket MUST have at least one PAID fighter registered in it to be held open. A 'pending' (non-paying) fighter CANNOT hold a bracket open. At this time, the TBA-SA staff will begin adjusting brackets with single fighters. In order to have time to finalize orders for belts and awards, we MUST close out single person brackets by May 24th. If no one has registered by then, you MUST choose another bracket or division unless other agreements with TBA-SA have been made. Your trainer will be contacted to discuss possible changes to ensure you have at least one fight and everyone has sufficient time to make new weight. By completing this registration, the person submitting it agrees to the match ups completed by the TBA-SA staff where matching is needed. If you decide to not participate in the match made, the fighter will be dropped and will not receive a refund. If a fighter has absolutely no option, they will still receive their goody bag, weekend event pass, and a credit for the following year. No Awards will be awarded without competing in at least one fight.
