Many sports have a special event each year to recognize players, officials and volunteers who have contributed to the sport. This is an important part of recognizing and celebrating success among the community. BASED was founded on the idea of positive mental health and for that to work we need young people to have positive role models within the sport and for those young people going above and beyond to be acknowledged and celebrated.

We hope that this event will become a highlight for the grappling community as a whole and an opportunity to celebrate the past amazing year as we launch into the new season. This also coincides with the end of the Beach Bash "Summer Series" so a lot to celebrate for all teams and players involved.
