Bracketing

We may have situations where we create a bracket using actual weights in the event that a traditional bracket cannot be created.  In the event that multiple weight classes need to be combined, the Madison bracketing format will be used.

Jeff Newby

Double Bracketing

You may be able to double bracket up a division or weight class using same weigh in weight.  Double bracketing can only be done at the head table after weigh ins and after the schedule of sessions has been released. No double bracketing is available for any situation where the double bracketing would have the athlete competing inside of the same session.  The speed of the bouts within sessions does not allow an athlete to be in two different brackets during the same session.
