CANADIAN (U Sports)
U SPORTS expects that all participants including Member Institutions, Regional Associations, Directors of Athletics (or equivalents), coaches, officials, student-athletes, administrators, Institution Representatives, volunteers, and others connected to our athletic programs and events uphold our core values of honesty, integrity, fair play, sincerity and honourability. All participants shall accept and actively encourage compliance with both the spirit and the letter of the rules governing U SPORTS, and shall ask for clarity on or interpretation of any rule regarding which there is uncertainty.
New members must declare at least two male and two female U SPORTS sports one of which must be a team sport. In the third year and beyond, new U SPORTS Members must declare at least two male and two female U SPORTS sports including one male and one female team sport. The following minimum participant numbers apply for sport declaration in cross country, swimming, track and field and wrestling:
These minimums are required before an institution can use that particular sport as part of their membership declaration. This does not prevent institutions from sending fewer athletes to a Regional Association or U SPORTS championship, but, in that case, the member will not have met the declaration requirement for that sport
