Varsity Sport at RRC

To our Coaches, Student-Athletes, Alumni, Supporters and Fans

I know many of you have been waiting for news about the possibility of the College resuming our varsity sports programs this fall. As the College continues its work to resume on-campus activities, with the focus dedicated to essential hands-on learning and training activities to allow students to complete their studies, we’ve made the hard decision to put our varsity sports program on-hold for 2020-2021 season.

While I know this certainly isn’t the news you had hoped for, this decision was made in the interest of the health and safety of our students and as a result of ongoing funding pressures and reductions as a result of COVID-19. At this time, it’s uncertain if varsity sports will resume in Manitoba this year, which is why made the hard decision to put our program on-hold.

We’re going to continue to monitor the public health situation closely as Manitoba works continues to reduce the transmission of the virus, and a decision regarding our 2021-2022 season will be made at a later date. I will be in touch as soon as I know more. 

I wish you all the best and will keep you informed regarding the future of the program as information becomes available to me. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
