Loss of Accreditation:
Any lost or damaged accreditation card should be reported to LOC or to the Accreditation Centre. Duplicate cards can be obtained where proof of identity can be established.
Every WMRA Member may enter one (1) team for each event. A team can be composed of 4 (four) athletes, the best three of them scoring. A Federation could enter up to 5 boys and 5 girls (including one reserve). 
Only the host nation is permitted to enter a second team.
The competition is limited to athletes born in 2005 and 2006. No athletes aged less than 16 or more than 17 years on 31 December 2022 can compete.
