Student athletes who are adept on the soccer pitch are sure to be in demand at Red River College this fall, as RRC will be fielding collegiate soccer teams for the first time in recent memory. Participating in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC), the RRC Rebels will compete against teams from Providence College, Canadian Mennonite University, Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface, and University of Winnipeg.
Twenty spots will be available on each of the men’s and women’s teams, with tryouts to be held in early September. The upcoming season — which will consist of eight games for the men and six for the women — is scheduled to extend through the end of October, culminating in a championship showdown.
“We’re really excited about the new RRC soccer teams and are confident they will carry on the Rebels sports tradition of success and sportsmanship,” says Ryan Ratushniak, Manager of Athletics and Recreation Services at Red River College. “This new addition will give the RRC community of Rebels supporters and sports fans one more reason to cheer this fall.”
