Before You Register
All prospective registrants need a WCA account. New competitors can create their own WCA account by clicking here and entering the required information.

How to Register Online
Prospective competitors register by:
1. Signing into their WCA account;
2. Clicking "Register" on the left side of this webpage, selecting the events they would like to compete in, and submitting their registration;
3. Paying the registration fee of $20.00. (The registration fee is the same regardless of how many events are selected.) Your registration is not complete until you have paid the registration fee.

The competitor limit for this competition is 150. The list of approved competitors can be found by clicking "Competitors" on the left side of this webpage. If there are already 150 competitors on that list, it means the competition is full, and any future registrants will be placed on the waitlist.

Competitors MUST register and pay online in order to compete. No at-the-door registrations or payments will be accepted.

Any requested changes to registration before 11:59 PM EDT on Monday December 19th will be honored. Your registration is not complete until your name shows up on the list.

How to Pay for Registration Online
Payment is processed through Stripe. Click on the "Register" tab on the left side of the webpage to register and pay all in one place! You can start the payment process by clicking "Pay your fees with card."

Refunds
Approved competitors who cancel their registration before 11:59 PM EDT on Monday December 19th are eligible for a refund for half (50%) of their registration cost. After this date, no refund requests will be honored. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.

Waitlist Information
We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. To secure a place on the waitlist once 150 competitors have paid, simply pay the registration fee. If a competitor emails us to drop out before 11:59 PM EDT on Monday December 19th, you will be notified if you are the next competitor on the waitlist. After that deadline, all remaining competitors on the waitlist will be emailed letting them know they did not get off the waitlist and will be fully refunded.

As of August, we are not planning on having any COVID-related restrictions, though competitors should feel free to wear a mask if they would prefer to do so. We will continue to monitor the regional COVID situation leading up to the competition date and we reserve the right to make changes to the policies accordingly. Competitors will of course be notified of any potential policy changes before the start of the competition.

Getting to Massachusetts:
* Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is the closet airport to Lexington. MBTA Silver Line and Blue Line services are accessible from Logan to the rest of Boston and other areas served by the MBTA.
* A number of bus lines (Greyhound, Megabus, etc.) have service to Boston. Consult Google Maps for public transportation from drop off points.
* Amtrak also has service on Acela Express and Northeast Corridor routes to Boston South Station. Connections are available there to the MBTA Red Line.

Driving to Lexington:
* We suggest using Google Maps for directions to Jonas Clarke Middle School (17 Stedman Rd, Lexington, MA 02421). Please park in the large lot adjacent to the School.

Public Transportation to Lexington:
* MBTA 76 Bus offers service to Lexington from the Alewife Red Line Station, however this service is not available on Sundays.
* Taxi or Uber (or other real-time ridesharing services) are also a viable way to get to Jonas Clarke Middle School. Take the MBTA Red Line to Alewife rather than using these services from bus/train stations or airports to avoid excessively high fares.
