Event description

Description

The Mel Zajac Jr. International Swim Meet was originally founded in 1963 as Canada Cup by legendary swim coach Howard Firby. His vision was to bring elite talent to Vancouver to race local athletes, both to inspire the community and to develop international talent right here at home. The meet has since grown to become a fixture in Canadian swimming, and the largest of its kind in Western Canada. Since 1998, Mel Zajac Sr. graciously sponsored the meet in memory of his sons Mel and Marty. Mel Jr. was a member of the Canadian national team and competed at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.

This year we are excited to welcome teams from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, Washington, Oregon, California, Florida and Rhode Island, as well as the Canadian Junior National Team and the USA National Junior Team. Stay tuned for more announcements on visiting teams and athletes!

Tickets are general admission and can be purchased per day or for the whole weekend (Friday, Saturday + Sunday). Single day tickets are $5.00 and weekend passes are $10.00, and can be purchased online with credit card or by cash at the door. Tickets include a meet program and the day's heat sheets (also available sustainably on the Meet Mobile app). Seating is on a first-come first-serve basis.

Food and drink are permitted in the mezzanine seating area and can be purchased at one of many nearby options at the AMS Student Nest, UBC Life Building and Central. This event is not licensed for alcohol.

In/out privileges permitted -- please grab a wristband for proof of payment upon entry.
