Welcome to WMB.

This waiver is required to participate in any event sanctioned by WMB (not exclusively WMB events). This includes WMB, D∓R, College, High School and Open events. We encourage you to create an account with us to speed up this process for you in the future and because the only way to pay for a membership online is by creating an account. You can create an account at any time and this waiver will transfer with it.

It is advised to use this method only if another party is purchasing your membership for you or you are planning to purchase your membership from a director at an event.
