About the World Spearfishing Championships

The Worlds are a 2-day championship where divers harvest fish for about 7 hours per day.  Each day, the diving is done at a different location.  Typically, 40 countries attempt to qualify to compete at the World Championships and often are required to participate in a regional qualifier.  When a high level of participation is demanded, regional qualifiers for the World Championships are hosted per Continent.  The America’s Qualifier is the Pan-American Spearfishing Championship, hosted last year in September, 2013 in Miami, Florida. 

The World Championships are boat-based meets and each team is allowed to have three divers hunting on three separate boats.  The Championships are run somewhat like a mini-Olympics where there are opening ceremonies and a big closing banquet.  It is expected that over a thousand people will attend the opening ceremony in Peru, where each team has their own national uniform.  At the opening event there is a parade of Nations and each country carries their nations’ flag.

Help support Team USA and stay connected with the team as they prepare and compete against the best the world has to offer.

Team USA consists of 3 Competitors, 1 Alternate & 1 Coach
