Information for Athletes and Regional Organizations
Qualifying Standards - Canadian National Championship
A first place finish in a designated Golden Ticket event will gaurantee you a spot at the Canadian National Championships in 2024!
You can obtain a Golden Ticket in multiple classes, but not multiple Golden Tickets in the same class. For example, if an individual places first in 1-dog scooter at two separate Golden Ticket events, the Golden Ticket at the second event will be awarded to the second place finisher and so forth.
Golden Tickets do not count toward a Regional Organizations regular athlete count. Golden Tickets are awarded in addition to the regular 3 per class/category numbers.
