Parking: There is a guest parking lot in front of the school, on 18th Street. If it's full, there are also street parking spaces nearby.

School entrance: The school is under construction, so the main entrance is now on 18th Street, the same side of the building as the front door of the Church of The Gesu. It is to the left of the usual main entrance (now enclosed by fences), and there should be a sign denoting this new entrance.

Venue location: The Fieldhouse is located on the 1st floor. Through the new school entrance, continue straight down the hallway and the Fieldhouse can be entered through doors on the right. If you cannot find it, look for words on walls that indicate "Kelly Fieldhouse".

Public Transport: Girard subway station on the Broad Street Line is within walking distance from the venue. SEPTA Bus 33 also arrives close to the venue.

Lunch: There are many options for food near the venue. The venue is also close to center city Philadelphia, where there are even more options.

In addition, please read this tutorial document before coming to the competition.

For All Competitors

When you arrive, you will receive a card with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also have judging/scrambling assignments on your card. Every competitor is expected to help out during the event(s) they are registered for. The card will look like the following:

If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.

Here are the groups and tasks assigned to each competitor for every event. We will be asking competitors, judges, and runners to come up to the stage by groups.

Registration Process

Before You Register

All prospective registrants need a WCA account. New competitors can create their own WCA account by clicking here and entering the required information.

How to Register Online

1. Signing into their WCA account;
2. Clicking "Register" on the left side of this webpage, selecting the events they would like to compete in, and submitting their registration;
3. Paying the registration fee of $25.00. (The registration fee is the same regardless of how many events are selected.) Your registration is not complete until you have paid the registration fee.

The competitor limit for this competition is 90. The list of approved competitors can be found by clicking "Competitors" on the left side of this webpage. If there are already 90 competitors on that list, it means the competition is full, and any future registrants will be placed on the waitlist.

After this date, no refund requests will be honored. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.

Waitlist Information

We will be keeping a waitlist for this competition. To secure a place on the waitlist once 90 competitors have paid, simply pay the registration fee.
