Registration – Athletes

The official deadline for registration is Friday, November 2, 2018, before midnight. After that date, registration will be closed. Additional registrations may be accepted the day of the competition, at the discretion of the clerk of course, but only to complete the first heat of an event; any such registrations will carry “exhibition” status. The meet will be limited to 400 athletes, and priority will be given to registrations in the order of their arrival, no matter what medium is used to register. Those from outside Canada registering by mail should allow sufficient time for delivery. (Teams from Canada must register online as indicated below.) Each swimmer may register for up to five (5) events, not counting relays. Any swimmer who has not paid the registration fee will not be allowed to participate.

Registration fees

Registration fees for the competition are set at $8.00 per individual event and $9.50 per relay. This amount covers participation in the competition. In accordance with FNQ regulations, payment must be made at the time of registration in order to facilitate and accelerate the welcome process on the day of competition.

The exchange rate for US currency is CA$1.00 = US$0.80. A surcharge of CA$2.50 will be applied to all payments in US currency made by check in order to cover bank fees.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Anyone who has registered and cannot attend the competition must inform the registrar by Monday, November 5, 2018 6h00 PM EST, in order to receive a complete refund. This policy also applies to billing of registration fees to anyone who registers without sending payment, whether or not he or she attends the meet. Substitutions will not be accepted for events.
