The event package includes details about the event in an easy to view (or printout) PDF format. The package contains: Travel information, the breakdown of divisions (age, weight, and skill level), a summary of the rules and point system, and more.

NEW REGISTRATION/BRACKETING SYSTEM
NAGA was extremely excited to launch our new automated registration and bracketing system here in 2017. Due to unexpected technological issues, we have had to suspend full implementation of the system at this time. Competitors who register online will still use the TourneyGuru website to create accounts and to register.
At events, NAGA will return to our manual bracketing methods. When the automated process is fixed and we are assured that our customers experience will be an excellent one, we will launch the automated system.
We appreciate your patience. We know when the system and its great features (updates via texting, posted brackets online, etc) are ready, you will be impressed.

REGISTRATION OPTIONS
For 2017, NAGA has three registration options: Pre-Registration, Late Online Registration, At Event Registration. Details for each registration type are below, followed by the registration deadlines.
