The ATA Virtual Tournament League is a great way to experience the excitement of a national event and test your skills against martial artists across the world, from the comfort of your home! Get your competition face on and prepare for Season 2 of the ATA Virtual Tournament League!
WHAT'S NEW FOR SEASON 2
FIRST CHANGE - Season 2 will consist of 5 “Regional Point” Tournaments and 1 “National Point” Tournament for a total of 6 total regular-season tournament opportunities and 1 Tournament of Champions. See Season 2 Tournament Dates below in the TOURNAMENT DATES section.
SECOND CHANGE - Season 2 will have the country divided geographically into three “Virtual Regions”; an Eastern Region, a Central Region, and a Western Region. You will not have to select your region when you register, we will place you automatically. This change was made in response to competitors wanting to experience the “regional” camaraderie they would, in non-pandemic times, experience. This will allow competitors to interact with those other competitors from their area, promoting the social aspect of tournaments that we are all missing so much. The national event will bring together all competitors across North America. In an effort to afford everyone an opportunity for competition, divisions may be combined by gender for both competition placement and points.
Tournaments in the Eastern Region will begin at 1 PM ET
Tournaments in the Central Region will begin at 1 PM CT
Tournaments in the Western Region will begin at 1 PM PT

WHO CAN COMPETE?
This competition is for all ranks and ages. There will be recreational, champion, and tiger divisions. Competition age for all competitors will be determined by their age as of December 31, 2021. Divisions will be combined as necessary to facilitate competition (The TOC will not have combined divisions). This may include but are not limited to combining Ages, Genders, Ranks, or a combination thereof. Points will not be split out if divisions are combined. Example: Boys color belt 8 and under are combined with Girls 8 and under. In forms, Girl-1 wins first, Boy-1 wins second, Boy-2 wins third. The points will be awarded in their separate divisions as follows: Girl-1 receives 5 points, Boy-1 receives 3 points, Boy 2 receives 1 point in their respective divisions.
