Once the deadline has passed, changes can only be requested by email, at [email protected], and will be subject to a late fee.
According to CAS Rule, 5.1.5 b), Each routine whose entry package has not been received or is incomplete by the stated deadline is automatically assessed a $25.00 fine. This fine must be paid to the Chief Referee or designate at the coaches meeting prior to the competition, or the routines concerned will be disqualified from the competition.
The FINAL deadline for late entries is 2 weeks prior to the start of the competition, on March 23, 2021, 11:59 pm EST. No entries will be accepted after this date.
The athlete fee is $40 per athlete. An online Event Registration Form will be provided to add this amount to the club’s total.
Two payment methods are available. In both cases, payment must be received before the final payment deadline to avoid penalties.
Preferred Method: By Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) to [email protected] (password should be QUAL2021)
By cheque, payable to Canada Artistic Swimming, sent to:

Note that the payment deadline is one week after registration, on March 23, 2021, but that late penalties will be strictly enforced.
Any duly registered routine whose video could not be submitted because of COVID-related restrictions will be refunded in full upon request.

Video Format & Resolution
Videos resolution must be 1080p (1920×1080), at 30 fps (frames per second). Note that sending higher resolution videos (like 4K) or higher fps will NOT result in better looking videos when streamed, in fact, it will likely result in choppy streams.

Please note that CAS rule 4.8.2.a will be strictly enforced: If the music video is not submitted by the deadline, if it is not in the correct format, if it is not labeled correctly, […] there will be a $100 fine per infraction.
For 2021 only, the National Qualifier Figure event will feature 2 figures instead of 4. These figures will be drawn and announced4 weeks prior to the start of the figure event, on March 5, 2021 and will be posted on the Canada Artistic Swimming website immediately after they have been drawn.
The figures for the 2021 National Qualifier will be Ariana and Jupiter.
