It was an ambitious schedule that Presidium Member Michael Eichert had outlined for the introduction of the WDSF Athlete's ID Card in his presentation to the 2012 General Meeting. Thousands of athletes dancing in the WDSF competition system were to apply for their cards between June and the end of 2012.

As of today, 18 September, some 2,000 applications have been received through the National Member Bodies (list below). The WDSF Office is currently processing them, and the first cards should get distributed in the very near future.    

All those who have not yet applied for their cards are kindly requested to do so without further delay. The use of the WDSF Athlete's ID Card will become mandatory from January 2013.
