  • Before competing all Entrants must go through the Accreditation Process including signing a Waiver of Liability to receive their validated Games ID. Accreditation CANNOT be done at a Sport Venue Desk.
    No entrant may compete without a validated Games ID.

There are two ways to become Accredited for the Games… 

  • Accreditation is offered online for an extra fee of $10 per person up until the Games Entry Deadline
  • Accreditation Letter will be posted to remaining Entrants.  Bring this, in person with photo attached to an Accreditation Centre where your validated Games ID can be collected.  This may be done on your day of competition but allow extra time before your start time.  It CANNOT be done at a Sport Venue Desk and NOT by a 3rd party.

I haven't received or have lost my Games ID or Accreditation Letter?
The Games has a duplicate at the New Cards Desk at an Accreditation Centre. All you need to do is bring a photo (head shot - to go on the Games ID) and photo ID to prove who you are. All entrants MUST have a valid Games ID. You will not be able to complete without this.

May I use a photocopy for my Games ID photo?
Yes, as long as you are recognizable.

Am I covered with Personal Insurance?
