OUA | Fall varsity sports officially cancelled for 2020

Written by OUA

OTTAWA, Ontario — The OUA has officially cancelled the Fall semester of the 2020-2021 season. The association made the announcement this afternoon, stating:

“Ontario University Athletics (OUA), under the direction of its Board of Directors, announces the cancellation of all OUA-sanctioned sport programming and championships up to December 31st, 2020. This conclusion was based on provincial public health guidelines and with the health and well-being of all OUA participants at the forefront.”

The announcement comes after fulsome deliberations with public health authorities and other governing bodies, with all parties ultimately agreeing that “a safe return to play for the 1st Term was not realistic”.

This announcement impacts all Ravens varsity sports except for the following teams that compete in the RSEQ:

  • Hockey – women’s
  • Rugby – women’s

A similar announcement from the RSEQ has not been released.
