We will not accept the participation of any unpaid individuals following September 2.

    • The cost of registration is $275 USD.
    • Registration is charged to all those attending with the National Team. This includes coaches, managers, team doctors, team media, family, friends, etc.
    • All participants must be approved by the National Federation

  • VISA Processing

    We have been notified that consular processing remains backlogged at most US Embassies and Consulates. If your National Team requires a visa to enter the USA, we urge you to apply as soon as possible, if you have not already done so. If you do not see an appointment available before the competition dates, you should follow the steps to request an expedited appointment. If you have problems scheduling visa appointments, please let us know.

  • COVID Requirements

    Please note – in view of the evolving health situation in the U.S. and globally, the ISA will no longer be requiring any further proof of vaccination to participate in the 2022 ISA WSG.

    This requirement is being removed from the Line Up Registration System and the COVID Commitment Letter has been updated accordingly. We will however still ask all participants to agree to the COVID Commitment Letter during Line Up Registration and to follow a minimum health/safety protocol for the overall safety of the event.

    It is important to note, however, as per the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) Guidelines, a vaccination card with a full round of vaccines is still currently required to enter the United States. Only FDA/WHO approved vaccines are accepted. Further guidance from the CDC can be found here:
