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 defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on April 1, 2022, which is two weeks after the second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer, Moderna) or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson). The photo identification can be any school- or government-issued ID.

Participants at the 2022 NSC will be required to wear protective masks while in indoor spaces shared with other people. Masks must be well-fitting, snug, and completely cover the mouth and nose. Participants actively engaged in the act of eating or drinking are permitted to take their mask off, provided they do so while at a safe distance from others. PACE recommends the use of N95, KN95, or KF94 masks, but surgical or cloth masks are also acceptable. Bandanas, masks with vents, or masks made from repurposed clothing items are not permitted.

Participants are not required to submit a negative test to attend NSC.

All participants will be required to adhere at all times to this vaccination and masking policy, 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
