We have just learned these games have been rescheduled in April 2013 Guam and feature Cadet, Junior and Seniors for both Pankration and Combat Grappling!
What this means is any athlete from age 15 on up will be eligible to compete in this event, however in order to qualify for this opportunity you must secure your eligibility by Competing in the 2012 US Team Trials which are being held March 31 and April 1, 2012 at Xtreme Couture MMA in Las Vegas.
Although it is not currently scheduled, in the event Guam is able to secure Schoolboy(14-15) or Novice(12-13) for this event, you will also need to attend the 2012 trials.
Less than two weeks left to register!! Don’t miss your chance to be part of this historic event.
Those of you who participated in our 2011 US Team trials will be excited to know that as a result of our record number of competitors we have decided to split the competition over two days, with Saturday’s Competition focused on adult divisions and Sunday exclusively for the youth! In addition we will be featuring four FILA certified referees.
Not only will you have a chance to meet members of the 2011 Silver Medal Team, you will also have the opportunity to meet your 2011 Gold Medal, World Champions, Laura Hill, Katie Maki, Kristen Palmejar, Michael Renteria, and Michael Smith.
In addition, our Host, Randy Couture, has indicated that some of your favorite UFC fighters will be lurking around the gym both days!
