Spectators will be allowed in the venue with a regular spectator wristband for the event. Athletes competing at the National Championships may enter with an event wristband. The Canadian Finals are not separately ticketed. Seating will be limited, there may be a separate line up for admission.
Athletes competing in the event who wish to enter the venue prior to when they are meeting their coach must ensure their coach has checked in at registration and receive their wrist band from the coach. Otherwise a ticket must be purchased.
Please note that children 5 and under are free!
In lieu of paper tickets all spectators will be given wrist bands upon purchasing access to the event. Wrist bands must be worn for the duration of the weekend. Unfortunately we will not be able to replace misplace wrist bands. All wristbands are waterproof.
Spectators will be permitted access to the building’s lobby without having purchased a ticket. Please note that all athletes will be required to pick up their wrist band from a team coach before being granted access beyond the lobby. Individual athletes will not be permitted to pick up wrist bands, with the exception of parent athletes.
