For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!
We wanted to let you know this event is perfectly fine for cubers of any age and experience. We just ask you know a couple things before coming to compete...
First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations, found here:
This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know, however, it is still required that they are familiar with the full set of regulations above.
If you have any questions after this video, we will be having a new competitor/judge tutorial the morning of the competition. That would be the perfect time to ask those questions and clear up any confusion.
If you are stoked to compete and ready to sign up, head over to the registration tab, click register, and fill out the information it asks for. This will help you get set up the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!
# Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. Please refer to section 3 of the WCA Regulations for more information on what puzzles are okay to use in competition. If you have any questions, please reach out!
Q: What is the competition like?
A: Competitions are a ton of fun! Competitions are a great opportunity to meet new cubers, make new friends, and be able to compete and get official times recognized by the World Cube Association. Competitions can be as social of an event as you would like them to be. The community is extremely welcoming and you can always sit at any table and strike up a conversation with another cuber. They are great places to try new cubes as well, just in case you are looking to get a new main cube! Once you walk into the venue, you will most likely see your nametag at a check-in table. If you are a first-timer, you will be asked to verify your information on your registration (name, DOB, country). Once you grab your nametag, go ahead and find a seat and start cubing! There will be a competitor/judge tutorial, which can be found on the schedule. After that, we will begin with the first event and will be calling events up by group. Your group numbers can be found on the back of your nametag. After you compete in an event, you will most likely also be expected to help judge another group (typically the following group). Competitions are very self-sufficient, so we rely heavily on the assistance from other cubers and parents like you! Your assigned helping groups should also be listed on the back of your nametag. Once you are done competing in your event, you can go back to your table and continue to socialize! To see if you made it to the next round of an event, you can check your results.
Q: How do I find results?
A: For the day of competing, WCA Live will have all of the results manually entered throughout the day. Once on WCA Live, scroll to the competition in question and you're good to go! After the competition, official results will be posted typically within a few days to a week after the competition happens.
Q: How do I get a WCA ID?
After official results are posted after the competitions (see question above), you will receive an email with information on your WCA ID.
Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you registration fee in order to be eligible to be placed on the competitor list. If the competitor limit has been reached by the time your registration is completed, you will be placed onto a waitlist, which is listed in the order of when competitors pay. If you are not advanced from the waitlist before the waitlist closes (date found on Register tab), you will be issued a full refund.
Q: What is the typical age of competitors at these events?
A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 10 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though! Everyone can and should cube!
Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete in the same groups.
Q: Is there anything else I should know before attending my first competition?
A: Yes! Attending your first competition can come with a lot of nerves, so try and focus on having fun and meeting new people. If you aren't as fast as Max Park or Feliks Zemdegs, just remember that all cubers faster than you have been at your speed at some point! I also point people to Mats Valk's WCA Profile since he started competing when he averaged well over a minute and now averages 6-7 seconds. People often do slightly worse in competition than at home too, so don't beat yourself up if you don't do as well as you had hoped! Once you lock in your first set of results, you'll have new personal records to break and goals to achieve at every new competition! If you plan on bringing any of your own puzzles, we highly recommend marking them somehow (sharpie mark under a center cap or something similar) or keeping them in a box/bag. It happens far too often that many cubers bring a bunch of puzzles, put them on a table unattended, and accidentally take someone else's puzzle, thinking it was theirs. It's easy to lose track of a single puzzle, especially since so many of them look the same at first glance!
To ensure the safety of attendees, we ask attendees to follow these guidelines:
- Each competitor is limited to two guests.
- Attendees are highly encouraged to stay at least 3 feet (1 meter) apart for the entirety of the competition
- All attendees are recommended to wear face-coverings at all times.
- All competitors showing symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been exposed to COVID-19 in the week before the competition must not attend the competition.
- We will provide hand sanitizer, masks, and disinfecting wipes to everyone in attendance, and we encourage attendees to regularly sanitize.
By registering for this competition you agree that you understand and will follow all the information listed above.

We segment our competitors to compete in "groups" at a time. For example, while group 1 is competing, group 2 will be free and can practice, socialize with other cubers, or volunteer to help out with the competition if they wish.
We are assigning each competitor a group for every event they are registered for. Shortly before the event, we will post which group(s) you've been assigned to, below. When you arrive, you will also receive a nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event.
In addition, you may also receive assignments for helping with judging and running. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for one group of that event.
Additionally, while we will have a few designated staff members volunteering all day, however we may make calls for help with judging, running, and scrambling throughout the day. We encourage all competitors to help out in order to keep the competition running smoothly.
