NEW GOFAN DIGITAL TICKET OPTION
Digital tickets may be purchased via GOFAN and Huddle Tickets. Be sure to download the GOFAN app to purchase digital tickets or go to the KSHSAA Swim & Dive Website and click on the "State Site Information & Location" tab and then click on the "Buy Digital Tickets" tab at the bottom of the screen. Digital tickets do cost a bit more than at the door due to a convenience fee. Tickets can be purchased on site at the event each day.

Ticket Prices:
- Student = $6 in person / $7.30 digital
- Adult = $8 in person / $9.40 digital

A "Friday Ticket" is good for all three sessions (6A Swim Prelims, 5-1A Swim Prelims, & Diving Semifinals) on Friday, so a person only needs to purchase one ticket for Friday. The same is true for Saturday, and there is only one session (Diving Prelims) on Thursday. Thus, if a person is planning to attend all three days, he/she would buy one ticket for each day. Digital tickets need to be visible on phone screens and shown to the ticket takers. Digital tickets cannot be printed.
