canadianCUBING is pleased to announce the Toronto Limited, Spring 2016 speedcubing competition. The competition will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016, at YMCA Toronto, which is located at 20 Grosvenor St Toronto, ON M4Y.

The competition will be held on the second floor auditorium.

A Limited competition is one where the number of participant is capped. This competition will allow a total of 150 competitors. Anyone registering after the limit has been reached will be added to the waiting list.

In order to secure your spot and complete your registration, you must pay for your fee online. Once you fill in the registration form, you will receive an email with instructions on what to do to complete your registration.

This is an official WCA event, and as such all official regulations will be followed. Please take some time to read them over before the day of the competition, especially if you have never competed before.

Since this is a Limited competition, we will be opening registration to all on Saturday April 2, 2016 at 10 AM EST in order to give everyone an opportunity to register with plenty of notice.

The cost to competitors will be our standard pricing model. You will pay $15.00 to compete in one event. Each additional event will cost $2.00 to a maximum of $25.00.

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.
