TORONTO – As a response to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the U SPORTS Board of Director has extended the moratorium on all in-person recruiting for its 12 sanctioned sports until April 30, 2020.   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 visit; 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.   U SPORTS will revisit this decision in the coming weeks to determine whether to extend this moratorium.
