Assiniboine Community College in Brandon has added soccer to its varsity athletics program.
Beginning in September 2013, men’s and women’s teams will be competing, making for student-athletes and coaches to be recruited prior to next season.
“Varsity athletics is an important aspect of a student’s college experience,” said Mark Frison, ACC president. “Providing our students with another athletic opportunity enhances the athletes’ experience; it also engages the entire student body as they rally to support the Cougars, their hometown team.”
ACC’s soccer teams will play in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC).
