ACAC searching for ways to offer some winter sport competition

October 22, 2020

The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) is optimistic about providing student athletes with some competition in the winter term. Following a special general meeting, Terry Ballard, manager of sport and wellness for the Medicine Hat College Rattlers said that “we’re going to exhaust every avenue we can and hopefully we can give the student-athletes an experience that will at least be somewhat similar to normal in winter. But again, there’s still a lot that has to work right and work in our favour.” The province released new guidelines for junior collegiate and university leagues, which limit league cohorts to up to 150 people, recommend COVID testing for all participants, and present options for shuffling cohorts to allow for full conference play. The ACAC has also made the decision to withdraw from Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association national championships in 2021. Medicine Hat News (AB)
