Registration Process

  • If your organisation has more than one unit then a separate registration is required for each unit.
  • Registration should be made by 1st November 2019 and should indicate the Class you wish to enter (please note that World Class is only available to 2019 World Class units or Open Class units who scored 85+ at the 2019 Championships) and also indicate which contests you will be attending which should include at least one in January, one in February (not including Ireland and Bristol at end of February – i.e. if you enter the Ireland or Bristol contest you must also enter one of the other two UK contests in February) and one in March. For all Open & World Class units this must also include the first contest on 12 January in Stoke.
  • If, after 1st November, any contest is deemed to be under subscribed then the WGUK Board may decide to remove that contest from the schedule and if that contest was the only one you entered in that month you will need to choose another contest in that month to be eligible to perform at Championships.
  • Following 1st November show entry details will be released to units and you will have until 30th November to confirm or amend your show entries.
  • From 1st December if you withdraw from any contest then there is a £50 penalty (to be paid before your next contest) plus a 2 point penalty (20 tenths) which will be deducted from all scores at subsequent contests including Championships.
  • From 1st December if you wish to enter additional shows then your unit will be placed to perform first in their class at the additional show/s entered.

Performance Order

The performance order for the January contests will be determined by the date in which a fully competed and confirmed registration is received and then a random draw of each days registrations. To confirm your registration you will be sent an invoice after 1st November covering the MPA:UK and WGUK Member Fees and the Contest Entry Fees and you will have 14 days to send payment. After 14 days, if no payment has been received, your registration will be deemed expired and you will be required to re-register.

The performance order for the February and March contests will be seeded after EVERY contest taking the average of your previous two scores (or one score if only competed in one show in January).

The performance order for Kids Class Finals, Cadet Class Finals, Junior Class Prelims and A Class Prelims, Open Class Prelims and World Class Prelims will be seeded by taking the average score of each unit from their previous two contests.

The performance order for Junior Class Finals , A Class Finals, Open Class Finals & World Class Finals will be seeded by taking the scores from their respective Prelims contests. All Open & World Class Guards and 50%, rounded up, of Junior & A Class Guards progress to their respective Finals.
