This event is a USA Judo Senior-D and Junior-C level event. The ONLY divisions in which points can be earned are the highest SENIOR belt rank divisions.

who place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the highest SENIOR belt divisions will receive Junior, C-level points in addi-tion to Senior points. Restrictions: Players must win at least 1 match and be a citizen of the USA in order to receive points. In addition, after earning points, in order to be listed on USA Judo's national roster, a player must join USA Judo (if not already a member).

The seeding order shall be in the order of the byes, i.e., if there is 1 bye, #1 shall get it; if there are 2 byes, #'s 1 and 2 shall get them, etc. If any of the top 4 nationally ranked athletes are not in attendance, ath-letes ranked #5 and below SHALL NOT be seeded, i.e., "moved up" to the next higher seed position.
