Pre-Registration will close on July 31!
You can still register at the door, but you will lose your seeding status.

Contestant List (Please make sure your division(s) and payment status are correct)
This list was updated on July 11. There are still 30 contestants who have not yet paid. If you do not pay by July 31, you can still pay at the door, but you will lose your seeding status.

Seed Status
If your country is not on the seeding list, this means your National Contest organizer has not submitted the results to IYYF yet and, in the end, you may not have your seed spot. Please contact your national contest organizer and ask them to submit their contest results to IYYF.

Contest Rules
If you are competing please read the rules carefully.
Some changes you may want to know about:
– 1A WildCard will be in two groups this year. In order to be fair it will be randomly split while also trying to evenly distribute players from each country.
– All 1A-5A divisions will have a WildCard round. Please be prepared.
– Women’s Freestyle will have a 30 second Prelim.
