Prince George, B.C. – Trampoline is set to make its debut at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George this week and Team Alberta’s coach Jamie Atkin is raring to go.

“Absolutely. It’s a different experience for us. We’re used to a much larger group of athletes. Here there’s exactly two guys and two girls per province. Eight provinces in total, so 16 guys and girls competing against one another. So a very elite competition.”

The Airdrie native says part of the fun is seeing which athletes were selected from which provinces.

“Provinces like New Brunswick we’ve honestly never seen them. They’ve never been to nationals so we’re excited to see them and to know that the sport has grown into New Brunswick partly as a result of the Canada Winter Games.”

The trampoline competition will take place at the College of New Caledonia.


Okay Google “canada winter games” click on “tickets onsale now” good luck finding tickets to this event. For all the taxes u collected for this event u don’t make it easy I’d say fire your sorry butts but doubt we can afford the severance pay Ironically I had no intention of going to anything This piqued my interest and I can’t find out how much or how to get a ticket

You don’t purchase tickets online. Show up 30-45 minutes before the event a purchase a $5 event ticket.



Shame on you for blaming other people for your ignorance and lack of effort.

Tuesday 10:30 – 6:30. Anything else you need to know!

Ski51. Ticketmaster..

I hate they announce everything in French first.. Why?

thanks coug79 found it now that I know where to look It’s not linked to the large banner that says tickets on sale now which most ignorant people might click on but buried in a narrative that followed 3 choices to get tickets none of which said at the venue An ignorant suggestion might be to say 4 choices one being at the venue rather than hoping people read further to find the 4th choice Point is the pg taxpayer is on the hook for this so finding out how to get a ticket should require minimal effort so there is maximum revenue and minimum hit to the taxpayer The people responsible for marketing aren’t volunteers They were paid

Trampoline as a winter sport. Who would have thunk it?

I agree with ski51, they certainly haven’t made it easy trying to figure out how to see these events.

Novel idea for getting tickets, go to the Ticket kiosk at CN center..

Must be real tough to figure out how to get tickets. The thousands of people that have already watched the events last week must have found them on the ground :)

P Val, likely your thousands of people bought the day passes and packages online, which ticketmaster is doing. What ticketmaster isn’t doing, is selling tickets for a single event. You have to go to the event and buy it at the door. Some of us, have a casual disinterest – we’re not all enthusiastic supporters, so making it difficult to buy a ticket, doesn’t help with your revenue stream. Go to ticketmaster right now, and they list single event with the helpful – currently not on sale.

Below is where I finally found the information – thanks to Gfreegirl. And I still think, it would have been nice if they had single event tickets as number 4, not below, and btw, you don’t find this by clicking the main banner, you have to a work around. The main banner takes you to ticket master. And, if I did go to the ticket kiosk as you suggest, they would have sent me to the event – because ticket master isn’t selling single event tickets, so you weren’t much help.
