Registration Payment

Registration will be done via the external website, listed under general info. Payment is part of the registration process. You must pay for the base fee and all events you registered for in order for that registration to be considered complete. You may update your registration (and make the additional payment or request a refund) before registration closes. Please check out the refund policy for details. You can sign up for any event you want, even if you have not met the qualification requirements yet. After registration, you still have until the qualification deadline to meet the qualification requirements. If you do not qualify for an event you registered for by the qualification deadline, the fee for that event will be refunded according to the refund policy. You cannot switch one event for another one even if the costs match; this must be done by making two separate requests, adding one event and removing one event.

All transactions will be done using Toss Payments. The payments are secure, and we will never see your card details.
