Thank you for participating in Geffen Spring 2022!

In order to make this event run as smooth as possible, please familiarize yourself with the WCA Regulations.

If this is your first time competing, it may be intimidating when you first walk in. To mitigate this, please watch this video that explains the basics of a cubing competition. Note that some changes have been made to competitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Any changes will be explained in the competitor tutorial.

Here are some frequently asked questions:

Q: Do I use my own cube to compete?
A: Yes, and they must comply with the WCA Regulations.

Q: Can I add or remove an event from my registration?
A: Not a problem. Send us a message through the contact link, and we will gladly change the events for which you are signed up.

Q: What are cutoffs?
A: Cutoffs are times that competitors must reach within their first two solves in order to perform the remaining three solves of the average. (For events like 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 that are based on a mean of three solves, competitors must be under the cutoff on their first solve to continue their mean.) We use them because we would like to expedite the competition as much as possible while still being fair.

Q: Can I come spectate?
A: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that only competitors attend. Competitors will each be permitted to bring one guest.

Q: Do I have to be present for events I'm not competing in?
A: No. You only have to be at the venue for the events in which you are competing. Click the schedule tab for more information. With that said, we recommend that you arrive early to give ample time to practice before competing.

Q: How do I find results?
A: Live results will be available on wcalive.com during the competition. This is also where you will find if you moved onto the 2nd round of any event. Once finalized, the results are posted on the WCA competition page.

Q: What is there to do when I'm not competing?
A: There are numerous tables where people can practice and hang out with other cubers.

Q: Are there age divisions?
A: All competitors compete in the same group.

To ensure the safety of attendees, we ask attendees to follow these guidelines:

Attendees will be required to fill out UCLA's Symptom Monitoring Survey.

  • Each competitor is limited to one guest. We will not let you in if you show up with more than one guest.
  • Attendees are highly encouraged to stay at least 3 feet (1 meter) apart for the entirety of the competition
  • All attendees are required to wear face-coverings that cover their mouth and nose when using indoor facilities, competing, and staffing, and are recommended to wear face-coverings at all times.
  • All competitors showing symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been exposed to COVID-19 in the 2 weeks before the competition must not attend the competition.
  • We will provide hand sanitizer, masks, and disinfecting wipes to everyone in attendance, and we encourage attendees to regularly sanitize.

By registering for this competition you agree that you understand and will follow all the information listed above.
