A decision on second-term Canada West sports will wait a bit longer.

Canada West announced Friday it will delay the decision on whether second term conference competition proceeds in the New Year until no later than Nov. 2 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The original deadline for a decision was Oct. 8.

Following feedback from student-athletes, the conference’s Board of Directors voted earlier this week to delay a decision on second term competition, allowing as much time as possible to assess the feasibility of conference play returning given the evolving COVID-19 environment.

Friday’s announcement pertains to men’s and women’s basketball, hockey, volleyball and rugby 7s (women’s) along with Canada West championships in men’s and women’s basketball, curling, swimming, track and field and wrestling.

Canada West cancelled all fall term team competition in June and subsequently opted for cancellations of Canada West championships in cross country, and later golf.
