Participation and scoring:
Several well-functioning tournaments have been incorporated into our program and this is
our requirement for future partners too.
Age groups: 2002, 2001, 2000
1st place – 7 points
2nd place – 5 points
3rd place – 4 points
4th place – 3 points
5th place – 2 points
Judokas will only be listed in the ranking after scoring for the second time, that is, having
been ranked in one of the first five places in two tournaments at least. Ranking will be done
independent of weight class on the basis of total scores and gender (, which means that 2-3
contestants can make it into each division).
Girls: 7 children – Gold Division, 4 children – Silver Division, 4 children – Bronze Division
Boys: 10 children – Gold Division, 5 children – Silver Division, 5 children – Bronze Division
