Sault College regrets to announce that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario Colleges Athletics Association (OCAA) has cancelled all fall varsity sports.

Varsity sports affected by the suspension of the 2020 fall semester varsity schedule include: soccer, golf, and cross-country running.

This decision was made due to many factors, including various regions of the province may be in different stages of opening; institutions have different openings planned which include hybrid academic delivery in some instances which may impact the team’s ability to have a sufficient number of players.

OCAA will monitor the situation and make a decision in the fall about the varsity schedule planned for the 2021 winter semester, starting in January. For the 2021 winter semester, basketball, volleyball, badminton, curling and indoor soccer would have a reduced schedule.

Men’s and women’s hockey fall under the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) and OCAA’s decision does not impact those programs. The college is currently monitoring the situation and a decision on these seasons has not been made.

Stay safe and healthy.
