U SPORTS cancels remaining national championships in 2021

October 20, 2020

U SPORTS has announced the cancellation of the 2021 winter national championships due to the pandemic. The decision was supported by the four university sports conferences, who agreed that student-athlete safety is the top priority. The affected events include the women’s and men’s championships in basketball, hockey, swimming, track and field, volleyball and wrestling. “It was very clear in the conversations with the conferences, that although they may entertain some form of competition during the winter semester, the logistics of attending a national championship were just not feasible at all for the programs across the country,” said Dick White, U SPORTS interim CEO.
