New Competitors

For those of you new to cubing, WELCOME!

We want 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: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/

The WCA Quality Assurance Committee has made a Competitor Tutorial for all competitors, new and old!

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 with the WCA's system and one step closer to your first official solve!

FAQ

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: YES! You are responsible for your own hardware in order to compete. This means you should bring your own cube, or arrange to borrow a cube from a friend.

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 do I do when I walk in?
A: There is NO CHECK-IN. If you registered online, just have fun and hang out with other cubers. We will be calling people up, so just wait for your name/group to be announced.

Q: How do I find results?
A: All results are posted on the WCA page within a week after the competition finishes. However, for the day of competing, go to cubecomps.com to find live information about current events. This is also where you will find information about 2nd and 3rd rounds of events. Remember, the results are entered by a human so please be patient if you do not see your results immediately.

Q: Why am I not on the registration list yet?
A: Make sure you pay you entrance fee in order to be placed on the registered list, which will also guarantee you a spot in the competition. If payment is an issue, see the contact link at the bottom of the page to contact us, and we'll see if we can work out another payment strategy, such as having you pay on arrival at the competition. No matter what your situation may be however, please register online. You may only compete if you have registered online and paid before the deadline.

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: Nope! All competitors compete together.

Q: Can I have fun at this event?
A: HECK YES! Cubing is amazing, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the competition!

For the first round of each event, competitors will be called by their group numbers. Competitors are responsible for knowing their group numbers and coming up to compete when their group is called for each event. Failure to come up to compete in a particular round when your group is called results in forfeiture of the solves in that round.

The easiest way to find your groups is to use the "Find" or "Find in page" feature in your browser, accessible in the settings of your browser, or by the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-F or Cmd-F.

Groups will be posted after registration closes. Please check back closer to the competition date.

Parking is non-metered and there is plenty of parking available within a 2 block radius of the venue.
