Covid-19 Safety Protocols

  • Competitors and staff will enter through and travel in one direction through the Hyack ballroom. Temperature readings will apply and you will be required to fill out a mandatory Covid Questionnaire for contact tracing purposes
  • Proper floor markings will be placed to ensure every competitor adheres to social distancing between each station.
  • As the athlete’s enter, they will proceed to Station 1 followed by Station 2, Station 3, Station 4, Station 5, Station 6 etc. and leave the building in an assembly line process.
  • Face Coverings: Due to COVID 19 restrictions, Face Coverings must be worn at all times by Competitors & Staff.  All athletes attending registration must wear a face mask when entering the building. Face Coverings must also be worn in settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. 
  • Vaccination Requirements: To be confirmed

Dress Code

Suits: The CPA does inspect suits. Please wear your suit to Athlete Registration. This includes ALL disciplines. Any suit that is not of good taste and decency or is simply too skimpy should not be worn. Please reference CPA Rules for the appropriate class attire.

Shoes: Although there are no restrictions on shoes, we try to guide the athletes to stay away from the higher platform type shoe simply because they are very difficult to walk in and are somewhat distracting.

Backstage Attire: At both the hotel & host venue wear only long pants and long sleeves while outside of the backstage area to protect seating, walls and other furnishings. Event Staff will ask you to leave if you are not in proper attire.

show day reminders

  • There will be socially distanced chairs for you to leave your things.
  • Pump up area will be in Studio B Only athletes & coaches with backstage passes will be allowed in Studio B
  • One complimentary ticket will be provided to the athlete to watch the show on the SAME DAY they have competed. Pick-up your ticket with your ID at Studio B.
  • At both the hotel & host venue wear only long pants and long sleeves while outside of the backstage area to protect seating, walls and other furnishings. Event Staff will ask you to leave if you are not in proper attire.
  • Cover the toilet seats. You may have great glutes but we don’t need to see where they have been.
  • Your hotel will charge you for stained towels, toilet seats, showers, sheets, etc. Wear long sleeves and pants to sleep or bring your own sheets. You should also bring your own towels. 

Things to bring to the competition

  • Mask/Face Coverings – It is mandatory that all athletes wear their face coverings when inside the building.
  • Gym bag for your clothes and food
  • Resistance bands – although some shows have weights in the pump up room, it will be very busy. Resistance bands are a great way to get pumped up backstage.
  • Towel – prepare to sweat
  • Layers – you may be hot or cold. There are variations in the venue plus your body does weird things when prepping for a show! Also when you get cold, your muscles flatten out and you’ll lose vascularity.
  • Clothing – prepare to be covered in spray tan so wear black. Loose clothes like sweat pants or a robe are best to keep your tan looking good. Flip-flops are recommended for footwear.
  • Extra Razor – in case you missed a spot
  • Handheld Mirror – As you may sweat, you may need touch-ups.
  • Extra Linens – Extra sheets and towels so you don’t lose your hotel room deposit from stained linens.
  • Toilet seat covers

Things NOT to bring to the competition

  • Professional camera equipment
  • Professional video equipment
  • Spray tanning equipment
  • Unsanctioned professional tanners
  • Unsanctioned professional make-up artists
