On-line pre-registration is a discounted and convenient option available to you. After the pre-registration deadline, fees will slightly increase to the standard registration amounts. Whether you are competing in the Men’s , Women’s, or Children’s/Teens division, make sure you read and understand what is expected of you to be able to compete at Copa NoVA Championships.  From the main menu, choose COMPETITOR and select your type (i.e., Men, Women, Children/Teen).  Here, you will find detailed information about your respective divisions.  Please review each of the items below, then continue on to the Registration Page.

If you are competing with fellow teammates: Please make sure you provide the exact same team name as each other during registration. This will ensure accuracy when reporting the results of our tournament.

Example: TEAM RELSON, RELSON GRACIE JIU-JITSU, & RELSON TEAM ARE 3 DIFFERENT TEAMS AS FAR AS THE COMPUTER SYSTEM IS CONCERNED.

These errors, caused by the registrant, will affect the outcome of the team results. Copa NoVA staff is not responsible for adjusting these errors caused by registrants.

In order to help with tournament progression we are requiring the following registration and weigh in timeframes.1. Registration:a. Children & Teens: Must PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT BY THURSDAY MIDNIGHT. There will be no registrations accepted after the cutoff or at the door (day of competition). These are the first divisions to compete, so to stay on track, we now require online pre-registration. This can be done directly through this web site.

2. Weigh in:

a. Children & Teens: Weigh ins can be the night before or the day of the competition. Remember, you must pre-register online for the tournament. *WEIGH-INS MUST BE DONE BEFORE 9AM FOR THE CHILDREN’S/TEENS DIVISIONSANY CHILDREN WHO DO NOT MAKE WEIGHT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED FROM THE TOURNAMENT.

At Copa NOVA BJJ, we take safety serious and consider it priority 1. Referees are responsible with the task of officiating in a dynamic and complex set of circumstances. All this while keeping track of points and following the Copa NOVA rule set. With this in mind, referees have the final word and there is no exception to this policy. Please be respectful to our officials as it directly affects the quality of our tournament.Many takedowns, sweeps, positions and submissions are legal throughout each division of Copa Nova. However, it is important to realize what you can and cannot do.  Like any sport, please read, study, and understand the rules prior to competing. They can be used to your advantage!
