2020-21 sports season
- Atlantic University Sport (AUS) and the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) have announced they will not proceed with regular season competition or conference championships for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
- Schools will be permitted to engage in competition if they wish, in accordance with public health directives. This would permit schools to organize matches with other teams in close geographic proximity, for example, if public health guidelines allow.
- At Mount Allison this will impact badminton, basketball, cross-country, football, hockey, rugby, soccer, swimming, and volleyball.
- Mount Allison will continue to offer programming for student-athletes. Coaches will be in place and teams will continue to train, while adhering to public health requirements and guidelines.
- A similar approach will be taken for club sports, allowing student-athletes to continue within public health regulations. Plans for individual club sport teams are being finalized and will be updated as they are completed.
- The University will honour athletic financial awards, provided student-athletes continue to take part in athletics programs.
- The national governing body for the AUS, U SPORTS, has announced that if there is no national championship in a given sport, student-athletes in that sport will not consume a year of eligibility.
