Fraser Valley – As a response to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the U SPORTS Board of Directors has issued a three-week moratorium on all in-person recruiting in the 12 U SPORTS-sanctioned sports, effective immediately.
This moratorium includes all in-person recruiting visits (on- or off-campus official or unofficial visits) as well as the scheduling and rescheduling of any future in-person recruiting; no travel arrangements can be made with prospective student-athletes during the moratorium.
Recruitment by phone call, text message, social media, email, or other non-in-person mediums are permitted to continue during this blackout.
“This decision was made after taking into consideration information from member universities, and our Chief Medical Officer,” said Lisette Johnson-Stapley, U SPORTS Chief Sport Officer. “U SPORTS believes that this is the most prudent action to take to protect the health and well-being of prospective student-athletes, their families, coaches and university staff.”
U SPORTS will revisit this decision in the coming weeks to determine whether to extend this moratorium.
