Madison Bracket Weight System

These divisions will use the Madison Bracketing System (all divisions will be formed based off competitor turnout).  This allows the best possible match ups to be made.  At the end of weigh ins, the competitors will be sorted by weight.  Brackets will then be made by grouping them into sets of 4 or 8 (depending on turnout).  Brackets will be drawn by weight, experience, and age (whenever possible).
