We acknowledge that the North and East Regional Championships are very close to Nationals this year.  If a rider knows that they will attend their respective WWA Regional Championship, they may go ahead and make plans to attend the WWA National Championships, they do not need to wait for Regionals to be complete to start planning.

The WWA Wakeboard U.S. Regional Championships along with the WWA Wakeboard National Championships are domestic U.S. events, with the exception of divisions containing the word ‘Pro’. Per the existing Nationals rule:

Rule 2.02 In all of the amateur divisions NO non-US citizen athletes will be allowed to compete in the USA Nationals. Except for Junior Pro Men this Rule does not apply. Regardless of citizenship, you can compete in Junior Pro Men.

U.S. Citizen Jr. Pro Men riders may qualify for the WWA Wakeboard National Championships through any of the WWA U.S. Regional Wakeboard Championships events-even outside of their region.

Pro Men invitations will be awarded off of the:
Top 40 2022 WWA Wakeboard World Series Ranking as of date to be determined
Top 15 2022 WWA World Ranking list
Defending 2021 WWA Wakeboard National Champion

Pro Women invitations will be awarded off of the:
Top 10 on 2022 Women’s World Ranking as of date to be determined
Top 15 2022 WWA Women’s Wakeboard World Series Ranking as of date to be determined
Defending 2021 WWA Wakeboard National Champion

Seeding- For all amateur divisions, the 2021 WWA Wakeboard National Champion will be the top seed in their respective division. Seating will then be based off the Regional Championships results.
