All athletes competing in the Katsu Challenge must fill out the Event Questionnaire and turn it in at the Check-In table when entering the Exactech Arena. This form is generated by the Gainesville Sports Commission (GCS). The GCS is instrumental in providing us funds to secure the Arena for our event.
All athletes must confirm their registration was received and entered correctly by viewing the Athlete Check-In list below. We will post when the list is updated and send you an email when your info is posted. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to fix any information. This is the final list. If your name is not on this list - then you are not registered for the tournament. We will not accept any new registrations at this time.
