Most athletes are accustomed to first-come-first serve registration here in North America for FWQ 2* events. This will DIFFER for South American events.

  • PLEASE NOTE: For South American events, registration will be based on raking on the 52-week seed list. All athletes, regardless of rank, will initially register to a waitlist, opening 6 weeks prior to the event. Registration will then close and invitations will be extended 4 weeks prior to the event date.
  • If you are an unranked athlete and wish to compete, we recommend that you register immediately upon registration opening. If positions remain after all ranked athletes have been confirmed, invitations will be extended in order of registration.
  • DO NOT BOOK TRAVEL until you receive an invitation to compete.
  • If positions remain after invites are extended 4 weeks prior to the event, registration will reopen on first-come-first served basis until 5 days prior to the event.
  • There will be NO ONSITE registration at this event. Regardless of event capacity, ALL registration will close 5 days prior to the event.
