NZ South Island Championship 2021 is an official World Cube Association (WCA) sanctioned speedcubing competition. Speedcubing is solving the 3x3x3 Cube or other similar puzzles as quickly as possible. The competition is open to all competitors regardless of experience and skill, but certain event-based time limits will be in place so as to make sure we can stay on schedule and get through the days on time. No prior experience in WCA competitions is necessary, but competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations.
In addition, NZ South Island Championship 2021 is the first regional championship held in New Zealand in the lead up to Nationals later in 2021.

Who can win the South Island Championship?
A: Officially the winner listed for all the events on the WCA website will be the overall winner in each event, however we will also have South Island podiums where those who have declared they are representing the south island will have a separate podium and these will be the South Island champions for 2021.
How do I declare my region?
A: There is a drop down box on the registration page where you can select your region. This will be what is used to determine which island you are representing at the competition.
How often can I change the island that I am representing?
A: This will follow the same rules as changing the nation you represent in the WCA so you may only change this once per year and cannot change between the South Island Championship and the North Island Championship in the same year. You can however change in a new year if you have moved regions.
Where will the region information be posted?
A: For now this information will not be public other than which Island you are representing. However in the future we will add an option to the SNZ registration page where you can opt in or out of publicly listing your region for the purpose of creating regional rankings for all 17 official WCA events. These rankings will be dispayed on the SNZ website.
Why do you need to know my region?
A: This is to try and see where our competition attendees are travelling from so we can better cater future competitions to visit every region with cubers in them. As well as create the regional rankings list in the future.
Can I choose to not select a region?
A: Yes, this will however make you ineligible for North or South Island podiums.
Can I win a South or North Island podium if I do not represent New Zealand in the WCA?
A: No, this will be treated the same as a National Championship where you can still compete for the overall podiums but not the Regional champiosnship.
The result to beat to proceed to the second phase of a cutoff round (see Regulation 9g).
The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
