U Sports Championships

It’s championship weekend for many Canadian varsity athletes and there are two notable events that you won’t want to miss.

The U Sports Track and Field Championships, which many may know historically as the CIS Championships, are in Edmonton March 9-11. Meanwhile, south of the border, Texas A&M is the site of the NCAA Division One Track and Field Championships. U Sports serves as the Canadian university championships; the NCAA serves as the American university championships though many of Canada’s top runners attend institutions in the United States.

The Canadian university athletics system changed its name to U Sports in October following a lengthy stint as Canadian Interuniversity Sport. The 2017 championships are the first national track and field event which reflects the new name.
