What is the advantage to pre-registering? Cost to you as a competitor... You will see that pre-register pricing for the National Championships is $160 for amateur classes, $105 for junior classes and $220 for Pro-Am classes. Friday onsite registration will add $10 per class and Saturday morning registration will add $25 per class to the above prices.
Why the cost difference? To motivate you to pre-register... but beyond that, in order for Pro Watercross to be able to maintain these beautiful race sites for the tour, we need to be able to provide accurate reporting to our host cities, which includes how many hotels nights are used during the event weekend. We are working extremely hard to ensure that our competitors are receiving the best room rates available.
