It's official. Region 1 has changed the date and location of the North East Regional Championships from early April at Lake Placid to late May at Herkimer, NY. Therefore, all Metro Jr. Olympic Tournament competitions have been suspended for the month of March and rescheduled to resume at the end of April as indicated below.This schedule change reduces the amount of time our athletes have to endure weight restrictions from 4 months down to 2. Therefore, Metro must change its Jr. Olympic & Youth Tournament schedule to better serve our young athletes. At the General Weigh-In on February 26, about one-third of the athletes had to move up in weight since they grew into a higher weight class from the time they originally registered. We expect the same to happen with this rescheduling of the tournament. Therefore, we will extend the time to change weight class up until April 15, 2017. However, since the 119lb Jr. Open and 138 Jr. Open division championships have already been contested, those champions will have the option of relinquishing their titles by April 15 for redraw and contest or retaining their division championships until the Box-Off with NJ in May. All other divisions in the Developmental, Novice and Open categories will receive this courtesy. Please respond to this email if you have any questions or wish to change your weight class.
