ALL COMPETITORS MUST READ THIS TAB BEFORE REGISTERING

Newer Competitors:
Be sure to read the WCA regulations before you compete so you are able to understand the rules. A basic overview can be found in this video.

All Competitors
Even though we will have a dedicated staff, there will not be enough staff to cover all the judging stations throughout the day. The new competitor tutorial at the beginning will include an explanation of judging. If you see an open judging spot, please volunteer and ask questions if you need help! If there aren't enough people in the spots for judging we will announce that we need more. If you are worried about judging, don't be! It's really fun!

FAQ:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?

A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete.

Q: What is the normal age of competitors at these events?

A: All ages are welcome, but in general competitors are between 12 and 20 years old. Don't let this stop you though, everyone can and should cube!

Q: What is the competition like?

A: Competitions are a bunch of tables where cubers like us get to sit and discuss our favorite thing, Cubes! Of course in addition there is competing, which will occupy one side of the competition hall, where you will see lots of timers flickering with contestants and new personal bests. This competition will have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into groups, as to better organize who competes when. (Check the schedule tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)

Q: Where do I find results?

A: All results are posted on the WCA page a couple of days after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to http://cubecomps.com/ to find information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?

A: Make sure you pay your entrance fee in order to be placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition. If payment may be any issue, or you are not sure if you can attend, use the contact button to talk to us, and see if we can work out another payment strategy, or have you pay on arrival at the competition. No matter what your situation may be however, please register online. It is much easier for us to have you register now and pay later, then to have to input information at another time.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?

A: YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!
