The majority of WSA events will not be covered by professional photographers and videographers. However, we encourage spectators to take and post photos/videos on our social media outlets.


WSA hosts all of our events in large venues, typically convention halls, stadiums or arenas. As such, plenty of parking is typically available on-site or very close to the venue. However, this also means that there is often a parking fee. Any parking fees are charged and retained by the venue or parking lot owners. WSA does not have any control over parking fees or receive any proceeds from it.


For the safety of the athletes and attendees, all schedules will be sent to gym owners/coaches.  Please check with your coach for performance times.

Teams should report to the warm-up area 15 minutes prior to their scheduled warm-up time.
