Virtual Passe-Sports challenges are issued. Why virtual challenges?

You need to keep moving even though most sports facilities are off limits, so why not take part in these exciting challenges that will have you try—at home or outside—over 20 different sports presented by Jeux de Montréal ambassadors. Select your delegation based on where you live on the island of Montréal to earn points and see where your delegation ranks at the end of the program. There will also be a contest for everyone who participates in the virtual Passe-Sports challenge.

Awesome, right? In the meantime, here are a few details to help you prepare for April 7.

How to participate

Children must be 6-12 years old on October 1st and live on the island of Montréal to participate.

First, you’ll need to create an account. On April 7, a sign-up button will appear at the top of our website’s homepage.

You’ll be able to enter all the required information there to create an account. You’ll get access to your Passe-Sports once you’ve completed the form.

Your assignment: finish all the virtual Passe-Sports challenges.

Passe-Sports

The Passe-Sports will let you see which challenges you still need to do and which ones you’ve already done. Three new challenges will be posted online every week. You’ll get an email to keep you in the loop.

Challenges – Rules

A video hosted by a Jeux de Montréal ambassador will introduce the challenge you need to complete.

Make sure to do the challenge outside or in a room that’s big enough so you don’t hurt yourself.

You need to send a video of you completing the challenge to get your virtual medal. Note that the video you’re sending should only show your successful attempt. We strongly suggest you practice before attempting the challenge.

The Jeux de Montréal team will watch your video to confirm you successfully completed the challenge before awarding you the virtual medal. You should then get your medal the day after you’ve sent your video. Video verification will be done randomly much like the random drug tests at the Olympics. If the Jeux de Montréal officials notice a failed challenge attempt, the medal won’t be awarded to you and you’ll be able to try again later.

Contest

The more challenges you do, the more chances you’ll have to win a two-night stay for your whole family at Fairmont Château Montebello. Please read the contest rules. For each medal you’re awarded, you’ll get one extra chance to win the prize in the final draw. If you do 30 challenges, you’ll have 30 times more chances to win than someone who only did one challenge.

We also have plenty of surprises in store for you.

Banners

To represent the delegations—a goal that’s at the heart of the Jeux de Montréal—you’ll compete individually to collect virtual medals under your delegation’s banner.

Until the end of the virtual Passe-Sports challenges, each completed challenge will be tallied in the per delegation results.

On June 30, banners for each discipline will be awarded to the borough or city with the most participation. We will also take into consideration each delegation’s participation rate to make sure every delegation has a chance to win one.
