Competitor Membership
• Each gym has its own set rules for facility access regarding the pandemic and participation in the competition. Please familiarize yourself with the gyms policies prior to participation in an event.
• Competitors should first check the host facility’s website to identify any local health department restrictions or other compliance requirements prior to their visit. Some areas or facilities may still have restrictions in place that require competitors and/or spectators to make reservations to climb at the host facility.
• If required, competitors should make a reservation to climb at the host facility during the designated two-week competition period prior to registering for the event within the KAYA app. Reservations may also be required for spectators. Please call or go to the host facility website for reservation instructions and event instructions. Please contact the host facility with any questions regarding access for the competition.
• Competitors should keep a written record of their completed boulders and videos of those boulders in the event a technical issue arises with the KAYA app. The written record should include the event name as listed on the USA Climbing website, date and time of your climbing session, photo of each completed boulder and each completed boulder’s name, color and grade.
Don’t forget to also capture videos of your completed boulders.
• USA Climbing will be releasing a set of rules specific to the Virtual Qualifying Events, an FAQ Document, Instructions for Competitors using KAYA, and an updated rules video for bouldering.
