Each nation can register a single national team.

A team consists of 3 to 5 high school students. A team has to be accompanied by a coach and a team manager (a team manager can at the same time be registered as a coach or an adjudicator). A team can be accompanied by an unlimited number of adjudicators. We highly encourage all participating nations to register adjudicators for WSDC 2018. Teams can also register observers who are free to participate as audience on all WSDC 2018 events.

Please make sure you consult WSDC Rules, Part Four before registering to make sure all your delegates are eligible to participate at WSDC 2018.
