Important 2019-2020 Regional Registration Rule Change

Dear USA Climbing Members,

Beginning this season and moving forward, the Youth Regional Championship registration period has changed. Regional registration will now end the Monday following the last weekend of the Youth Local season. For the 2019-2020 season, Regional registration will open on the following dates:

Bouldering Regional Championships – November 4th to November 25th, 11:59pm MST
Sport & Speed Regional Championships – March 30th to April 20th, 11:59pm MST

This amendment has been made to allow USA Climbing, Regional Coordinators, and the Host Facilities adequate time to finalize registration and other important event details.

The amended rule has been included below.

Amended Rule 3.12.3
The registration period for the Regional Championships shall be a period of three (3) weeks, where the end of the registration period shall be the Monday following the last weekend of the Youth Local season for the same discipline. For the avoidance of doubt, the registration period shall start on the Monday three weeks prior to the end of the registration period. During this period, all eligible competitors (refer to rule 3.10 above) are encouraged to register. After this registration period, USAC will post a registration chart of currently registered competitors. All other eligible competitors who have not yet registered may register during a twenty-four (24) hour late registration period but shall incur a late fee of $50.00 during this additional period.

This amended Rule 3.12.3 will be among the updated Rules expected to be approved and published in early November 2019.
