The day-long event will feature several dozen teams and hundreds of competitors from across Ontario and Quebec.

This will mark the third straight year that the event is held in Cornwall following a successful first edition in 2018.

The arena floor inside the Civic Complex will be split in half with the action taking place on a spring competition floor before a panel of judges.

“It’s another example of just how versatile the Civic Complex is for special events. It also builds on Cornwall’s growing status as a premier location for hosting sporting events and conferences,” said Janice Robinson, Facility Rental Coordinator.
