First, please be familiar with the WCA Regulations.

These videos will explain most of what any cuber competing for the first time will need to know.

Q: What will the competition look like?
A: A competition usually runs throughout the whole day where cubers meet up and have fun, although you are more than welcome to stay the whole day or leave whenever. You will compete in events you have signed up for and have the choice to cube at a waiting table.
Q: Who is allowed to compete?
A: Everyone, from all ages are allowed to compete! Do not be hesitant if you are not experienced with cubing or competing, we encourage newcomers to come along, we will help out.
Q: Whose cubes do I use?
A: When competing, it is ideal to use your own cube. Make sure you have one ready to go when it is time to compete. Equipment like timers will be there to compete with. (The competition will not supply you with cubes to compete.)
Q: How do I check the results of the competition?
A: There will be a website: WCA Live to check concurrent results throughout the day. Official results will then be posted the following days of the competition.

Do not be intimidated by all these rules and expectations. Competitions are for everyone to have fun! If at any time during the day you have any questions feel free to ask us!

Competitor Duties

Particularly if you are newer to competing or to judging or need that refresher after being out of competitions for so long, please read the WCA Competition Tutorial before coming to the competition to learn for the first time or simply be reminded as a more experienced competitor about the procedures for both competing and judging. There are also tons of tutorials on YouTube if you prefer to learn that way.

All experienced competitors will be scheduled by the organizers to serve as judges and scramblers. Schedules will be posted at the venue and found on the back of the prepared name tags on the day of competition.
We kindly ask that everyone tries to out by judging, scramble or run, in order to keep pace with the day.

Keeping the venue as tidy as possible will be a great help as well.

Serving in these essential roles - including on the spot invitations to both competitors and attendees to assist the organizer as co-runners - makes for a smooth and excellently run competition for all.

Thank You.
