What is a Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh)?2020-01-28T16:50:18-05:00

A Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh) match follows nearly the exact same rules as judged competition. There is no restriction on the use of power in a full-contact exhibition. Athletes are still able to go full out, however, regardless of the outcome the match is considered an exhibition. It will still count towards a record, but it will not add a win or loss to the record. For example, “1-2-0; 1 Exh”

The differences are:

  • No elbows to the body are permitted
  • If an athlete bleeds the bout will be stopped regardless of severity
  • 16 oz gloves and leather shin guards are worn in exhibitions (and must be brought by athlete) vs. the usual 10 ounce gloves and cloth shin guards provided by the event host in judged competition

This is not to be mistaken with Light Contact Exhibitions, which do not allow head contact.

What are processing times?2020-01-28T16:42:02-05:00

The entire staff of two (!) at MTO works hard to maintain an average turnover time of 5-10 business days, or sooner.

Whether it be an email, contact inquiry, medical or membership submission, we will definitely get back to you after 10 business days. If you haven’t received any follow-up or confirmation emails from MTO after 10 business days, please email us to inquire or fill in a contact form.

 

What are the submission deadlines?2020-01-28T16:42:13-05:00

If you are competing or cornering at an event, the submission deadline for all membership information* is two business days before the event. However it is recommended to submit membership information in much earlier for review to receive any feedback from the MTO staff.

Example 1: If an event is on a Friday 3rd, the deadline is Wednesday 1st. 

Example 2: If an event is on a Saturday 4th, the deadline is Thursday 2nd.

Example 3: If an event is on a Sunday 5th, the deadline is Thursday 2nd.

*Membership information consists of: club membership, athlete/coach membership, medical submissions, background check submissions.

A reminder that regular processing times are between 5-10 business days.

What if I’m an Athlete and a Coach?2020-01-29T17:51:57-05:00

You do not need to pay a separate membership fee for each role you select in your membership form.

The Athlete, Coach, or Official roles are bundled into one membership with MTO.

With one membership fee you can choose to only have one role, or multiple! Just remember to keep up with your membership requirements for each.

Athlete: Annual Medical Declaration, and Lab Test Results (labs required 16+ competing judged contests)

Coach: Relevant Background Screening

Official: Relevant Background Screening and MTO Official’s Seminar

ATHLETES

Where I do send Medicals?2022-05-10T12:11:00-04:00

**Medicals will no longer be required to be uploaded to the website. If you are competing the day of the event, please bring all relevant forms (digital or paper) to each and EVERY competition, regardless whether you presented it the month before, the week before or the day before. Otherwise, you will NOT be able to participate.

 

Athlete medical submissions should not be emailed to MTO as they will not be processed this way.

Medicals must be uploaded to the website under the ‘Athlete Medical Upload’ link found under the ‘Athletes’ tab on the homepage.

 

How long is medical valid for?2022-06-27T13:22:03-04:00

Valid Annual Medical Declarations expire 12 months from when it was dated.

Valid Lab Test Results expire 6 months from dated form.

Note that lab test results are bundled together (HIV, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B Surface Antigen), so if your tests all have different dates then the earliest dated test will be used to calculate the expiry date.

Example: HIV and Hepatitis C tests were done January 3, 2020, but Hepatitis B Surface Antigen was done February 2, 2020. The earliest dated tests in this case is January 3, 2020. Meaning the athlete’s expiry date would be June 3, 2021. 

What Medical do I need to compete?2020-01-28T16:29:19-05:00

The type of competition (and your age) determines if you need medical and lab tests done.

Full Contact Judged Competition: A Full Contact contest in which judges are present, and one contestant may be declared a winner. This match would affect an athlete’s Class progression as a win, loss, or draw.

Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh): A Full Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. Athletes who do FC Exh still compete with full force, displaying technique and power. This match affects an athlete’s Class progression but not as a win or loss. For example, an athlete with 2 wins and  2 FC Exh has a record that looks like 2-0-0, 2 Exh, and is in B class.

Light Contact Exhibition (LC Exh): A Light Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. This does not affect an athlete’s Class progression. But should still be disclosed in an athlete’s record.

 

See all definitions at the Provincial Competition Ruleset and the Exhibition Competition Ruleset

LIGHT CONTACT The use of controlled techniques. No contact to the head is permitted, nor is any contact which may or is intended to result in harm.

FULL CONTACT The purposeful use of physical force, including contact which does not meet the definition of Light Contact.

How do I know my Athlete profile is valid for competition?2022-06-27T13:27:53-04:00

There are different requirements for the type of competition you’re participating in.

Full Contact Exhibition

A) Expiry Date
Make sure the expiry date is December 31 of the current year you’ve registered in.
Example, if I register at any time in 2022, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2022. If I register at any point in 2020, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2020.

B) Medical Expiry Date
This is your Annual Medical Declaration form. The expiry date is 12 months after it was dated by the physician. Only stamped medicals are valid.

Example, an athlete’s medical expiry date is Oct 2, 2018, meaning the physician dated the medical on Oct 2, 2017.

C) Lab Test Expiry Date
This expiry date is bundled from the three required lab tests as stated on the Annual Medical Declaration form. The earliest dated test out of the three is used as reference for the expiry date. Expiry date is 6 months from when it was dated.

 Example: If HIV and Hepatitis B Surface Antigen were completed in June 2022, but Hepatitis C was completed October 2022, the expiry date for these three tests becomes December 2022 as it’s the earliest dated test.

Tests required: HIV Antibody (HIVAb), Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg), Hepatitis C Antibody (HCVAb).The expiry date will only be updated once all three test results are valid.

COACHES

Where do I send Background Checks?2022-05-10T11:19:19-04:00

**Background checks/VSV will no longer be required to be uploaded to the website.

Otherwise, you will NOT be able to participate.

If you are submitting a Vulnerable Sector Verification or local police check, go to the ‘Background Check Upload’ link found under the ‘Coaches’ tab on the homepage.

How do I know my Coach profile is valid?2022-05-10T11:53:31-04:00

A) Expiry Date

Make sure the expiry date is December 31 of the current year you’ve registered in.
Example, if I register at any time in 2019, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2019. If I register at any point in 2020, the expiry date should be Dec 31, 2020.

B) Background Check

Depending on your date of birth, the background check you get differs. This is explained at this link.

  • Vulnerable Sector Verification must say either “E-PIC Only” or “On File”. If it is blank or says ”not on file”, then passport is not valid
  •  Background Check Expiry should not expire before the event day you’re participating in. Example, if you are cornering at an event on November 2, 2019 but the background check expiry date is September 30, 2019, then it is invalid. Expiry dates are 12 months from when the documents are dated.

C) Concussion Awareness

Disregard this section if you are registering for 2020 as a coach. Previously this field was created to track coaches who registered before the implementation of Rowan’s Law in 2019, and ensure they read Concussion Awareness documents.

This year, all coaches will be able to sign-off on concussion awareness information on their membership application, meaning all coaches will have gone through the same Concussion Awareness documents. This field will be removed from the coach’s passport early 2020 and won’t affect participation at events.
