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:

Of course, those regulations contain a lot of legalese, so we have a video made specifically for new cubers, just to show them the basics of competing. This video will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.

If you have any questions after this video, we will be having a new competitor tutorial, Saturday 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!


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 10 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 nerds 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 new personal bests, and a vendor, where you can purchase all you cubing related needs. Most competitions have a break for lunch, and the competing is split up into heats, as to better organize who competes when. (Check the Groups tab and listen at the competition for more info on this.)

Q: How 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 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 you entrance fee in order to be automatically 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. No matter what you 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: Are there age divisions?

A: Nope! All cometitors compete in the same group.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?

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

How to volunteer:
The SacCubing Staff is always looking for helpers to assist throughout the day of the competition. If you would like to volunteer with judging and running, we will be asking for your assistance over the microphone. Anyone is free to help, as long as you have read and are understanding of the WCA Regulations, which every competitor is expected to know.

If a competitor contests a ruling or any incident happens during judging that you aren't completely sure how to handle, flag down a delegate.

How to be on staff:
An upgrade from a regular volunteer, staff members are expected to continuously help out with judging, running, and scrambling throughout the entirity of the competition. Some of the benefits to staffing over judging are:
-Priority of solves
-Obtaining free lunch, in the form of pizza
-Having a portion of your registration refunded, depending on your effort in your work and the total number of registrations
-Permission to join us for staff dinner after the competition has concluded

If these perks interest you, please click on the following link to fill out a form: Survey
Please note that we are looking for the following:
-Has been to at least one competition prior, specifically SacCubing
-Is 14 or older
-Lives in Sacramento, Placer, or El Dorado County

If you do not fall in one or more of these categories, please do not be discouraged to sign up for staff anyway. We are always looking for some help. Please be aware that we will only be selecting a certain percentage of competitors to be on staff, and you will not be considered for staff unless you pay your registration fee. Emails will be sent out to staff members a few days before the date of the competition.

What are these?
For the first round of each event, we will call up competitors to compete in groups. Please listen for your group to be called.
Groups will be called in alphabetical order.

When your group is called:
Go to the scrambling table with your solved puzzle.
Find the scorecard with your name on it. If it's not there, check another scrambling table.
Find an empty cube cover (it's a paper box, either white or black)
Place your cube and your scorecard in the box.
Set the box sideways on the scrambling table, next to the other sideways boxes.
Wait in the competitor area behind the timing stations and away from the scrambling table to be called to a timing station.
