There will be no sports at the university level this winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That decision was announced by Ontario University Athletics (OUA) on Thursday.

"In line with the previous decision regarding Fall term sport, this decision was based on provincial public health guidelines and with the health and well-being of all OUA participants at the forefront." stated a news release.

“After significant consultation with our members and advisors, we have determined that OUA sport cannot be delivered prior to March 31st.” added Dr. Deborah MacLatchy, chair of the OUA Board of Directors and Wilfrid Laurier University's president and vice-chancellor.

A decision to cancel fall sports was made back in June.
