Schedule can be changed according to the number of the registered competitors.

We consider a registration complete, when the WCA ID has been connected to the WCA account, or if the competitor has not competed before, but has a complete WCA account, providing all the personal data. Accepting completed registrations are on a first come first serve basis.

Make sure to use an e-mail address which you check regularly, because registrations might needed to be confirmed via e-mail.

Steps of the registration:

(If you already have a WCA account skip 1st and 2nd step. If your WCA ID is already connected to your account you can skip the 3rd step either.)

1) Create a WCA account
You have to use your full name. If you ever competed before at official competition, use an e-mail address that you already used for WCA registration and which you check regularly. You will get a confirmation link in e-mail and by clicking on that your Account will be validated.

2) Give your personal data
Sign in with your WCA account and click to the "Notifications". There will be a "Your profile is incomplete" link. Click here and provide your Gender, Birthdate and Country to finish your account. (If it's your first competition and don't have a WCA ID you finished your account and you can skip step 3) )

3) Connect your WCA ID to your WCA account
Sign in with your WCA account and click to the "Notifications". There will be a "Connect your WCA ID to your account" link. If you click on that you can write in your WCA ID (or you can simply search for it by typing your name in). To finish this you will need to choose a delegate, who's competition you already participated at to confirm your request. (In a lot of cases the system will offer you a delegate, but you can choose other if you want. Please keep in mind that connecting WCA ID-s and WCA accounts can take a few days.

4) Register to the competition
After having a full WCA account you can register to the competition in the WCA website.
