All bouts sanctioned by CSC will follow the time schedule established within these rules and regulations. Any requests to alter any portion of this rule must be made in writing at least 15 days
prior to the scheduled event.
ALL BOUTS WILL USE THE MATCHMAKING POINT SYSTEM (found under rule 561.00) AND THE BOUT AGREEMENT FORM IN ORDER TO PROPERLY INSTITUTE TIME LENGTHS OF
1000.05 Schedule Considerations
In order to help create an orderly alignment of events throughout, CSC would like for promoters and
production staff to consider using these timelines.
15 minutes prior to starting the event - Make an announcement of starting time.
5 minutes prior - Announce “All officials to ringside”
Start the event as scheduled. Allow 10 (ten)minutes for playing of the National Anthem, introduction of
officials, staff, and sponsors and any other announcements.
After each set of 4 (four) bouts and prior to the main event, take a 5 (five) minute intermission to allow staff
and spectators to use the restroom and patronize concessions. This will also allow the next set of fighters the
time to get ready and the finished fighters to clear the area.
1000.35 Round Times and Length
ALL CSC Sanctioned Bouts that are not Promotional or Sanctioned Title Bouts will consist of 3 (three) rounds of 3 (three) minutes with a 1 (one) minute rest period between each round.
1000.40 Championship Fights, Regional, State or Higher
All bouts in which a Championship Title for a State or higher level will have 4 (four) rounds of 4 (four) minutes with a 1 (one) minute rest period between rounds.
1000.40a Promotional Championships
All Promotional Championship Round Lengths will be 3(three) rounds of 4(four) Minutes with a 1(one) Minute rest period between rounds.
1000.50 Sudden Victory Round
For bouts involving a State Championship or Higher, if after 4 (four) rounds of competition, all of the judges score the bout a draw, 1 (one) additional round of 4 (four) minutes will commence.
All judges will score using a new scoring sheet and the winner of this round will be the victor.
The Sudden Victory rule does not apply and is considered a violation, if it is used in a bout in which a CSC Championship Title is not being awarded. At no time is a promoter allowed to utilize
this rule for a local championship trophy without express written consent of the Director of Officials.
