The 2020 Qualifier has been cancelled

Canada Artistic Swimming established and communicated a response plan to address our competition landscape in the evolving situation related to the attempt to contain the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.  This plan was assembled in collaboration with our Members and had at its core, the primary objective to keep our participants healthy and safe, and a secondary objective to continue normal sport operations as much as the situation would allow.

CAS has watched closely as the government health advisors at various levels make recommendations on the basis of their expert opinions, and government and other sport agencies move forward to implement those recommendations.

As these decisions have unfolded very quickly, the definition of normal sport operations has changed significantly within the last two days. 

Consistent with the health and safety guidelines being implemented across Canada, and with new directives from the Ontario government, the decision has been taken to cancel the 2020 Qualifier competition scheduled to be held in Markham, Ontario, March 24-28, 2020.  

This is one of many difficult decisions that are being made across the country and around the world related to sporting events of all types. With such a rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, CAS is committed to following all of the recommended guidelines and measures to slow its spread and maintain the health and well-being of our athletes and all other participants in our sport.

At this moment, a contingency plan is being constructed to address the Canadian Championships scheduled for Quebec City in early May.  For now, this competition will continue to remain on our calendar.

Accompanying this announcement is a Q and A which will address many of the questions our clubs and parents have as a result of this decision.

We wish all of our Members and participants continued good health and safety through this challenging period in our history. 

CAS is presently determining the financial impact on the organization for cancelling the event.  As soon as that is complete, we will be in a position to answer this question but all routine fees will be reimbursed
At the moment, we are hopeful that the Canadian Championships will proceed on schedule.  Given the amount of information that is not known or is evolving quickly, CAS commits to making a decision about whether Canadians will continue to be held, on or by April 15, 2020
CAS has determined that by adjusting the schedule of the Canadian Championships slightly, all the solos and duets that would have competed at Qualifier can be accommodated. Therefore, all entries qualified through the provincial championships to compete at Qualifier will be eligible to compete in the same events at Canadians
Depending on where you booked, many hotels are waiving cancellation penalties.  You should check with the property you have booked with as to their terms
Depending which airline you booked with, some, like Air Canada, are waiving change fees.  Check their website or your travel planner for more information
