Questions and answers
How can I buy ticket?
If you are an athlete’s parents and/or guardians, you can buy a
synchronized swimming pass. These passes are currently being sold
exclusively through Provincial and Territorial teams so that parents of
the competing athletes are guaranteed access to watch their daughter
compete. If you would like to buy this pass, please contact your
provincial/territorial office. You can also buy a weekly pass.
The pass allows pass holders to access various Canada Games sporting
events and venues, including synchronized swimming. Parents of athletes
were at that point given the opportunity to buy the weekly pass which
would give access to the synchronized swimming events based on first
come, first serve basis.
Which judging system will be used at the 2011 Canada Games?
The 3-mark system will be used as required in the rule book.
