USA Judo




A representative for each athlete must attend the draw to ensure the athlete is in the correct category. Failure to confirm or make changes/corrections during the draw may result in the athlete NOT COMPETING IN THESE CHAMPIONSHIPS

New In 2018!


Method Of Draw

USA Judo has been listening to your requests!

In the interest of making more time available for coaches and parents to spend time with their athletes, USA Judo is presenting a new "draw" procedure at the Presidents Cup Championships

All draws will be conducted using USA Judo approved software. See Rules and Method of Competition for all seeding information. With the exception of seeding, the draw will be random. Once the draw is complete, there will be no changes.

If two or more athletes fail to make weight or report to weigh in’s in the same category, the division may be redrawn.
