canadianCUBING will have a merchandise booth set up for you to purchase equipment and supplies for your cubing needs. We accept cash only. It is on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot guarentee any items. Check the merchandise section often, as new items come in and we will update the site as they do.

We are always looking for dedicated people to donate their time and efforts to these competitions. We need scramblers and judges for every round of every event. It is a great opportunity for parents, siblings, friends, or anyone that wants to come and be involved but does not want to compete yet. We will provide training the morning of the competition for those wishing to help out. It is not difficult, so don't be afraid!

For anyone that volunteers and helps out for an entire competition, we will act as a reference if you wish to put this on your resume or college application. We will also sign any high school volunteer hour sheets provided you work the entire competition. But you must arrange this with us before the competition. Contact us here if you plan to help out.
