All individuals present at the 2022 NSC will be required to present proof of vaccination and photo identification at check-in. PACE will accept any of the vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration or World Health Organization. Individuals must be fully vaccinated as currently defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on April 1, 2022 (please note that this definition may expand to include a booster shot). The photo identification can be any school- or government-issued ID.

PACE will make a decision regarding mask and testing policy closer to June 2022, as the state of the pandemic can fluctuate greatly in a matter of months. The policy will align with national and local public health requirements. All participants will be required to adhere at all times to any mask or testing policy PACE implements, with no exceptions.

Any NSC participants unwilling or unable to adhere to the requirements of this policy will not be permitted to attend, or will be asked to leave if found to be noncompliant during the tournament. If you have questions regarding any details of this policy, please direct them to
