2020 Virtual Cruisers Cup



Are you the fastest skater in the world? Are you the most accurate shot? Would you like to find out where you rank in the world? Cruisers Sports is offering you such a chance!
With all the travel restrictions around the world and the cancelling of events, (including the 2020 Cruisers Cup), we thought why not offer a virtual Cup -- actually, a Cruisers Cup All Star competition.

How It Works



Below are listed a series of skill challenges a player can enter. Entry is free to everyone, WORLDWIDE! Players will be ranked by age group (listed below). Players can enter as many events as they like. All entries must be videotaped and submitted so we can verify the results. Teams can enter as many players as they want.

Now here’s the fun part. All the winning performances will be compiled and put on YouTube for everyone to see. We will post a list of all the performances so players could see where they ranked in the world. To top it all off, each team that enters performances will receive 10% off their 2021 Cruisers Cup entry. Next year’s event is planned for Nov. 5-7, 2021 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.

Entry opens November 1, 2020 and closes at 23:59 (EST) on December 20, 2020. Each entry must be submitted in its own video (one result per video file) using the free WeTransfer file transfer service, and have a Digital Submission sheet filled out for the video. The Digital Submission sheet will list the athlete name, contest number, gender, and entry group they are being entered into, along with the file name (so we can associate the file with the athlete). Rankings will be posted on the 2020 Cruisers Cup results page and updated as results are submitted. Winners will receive an electronic certificate that they can print off and display.

Please send all submissions (both the Digital Submission form and video via WeTransfer) to 2020cruiserscup@cruisers-sports.com.
