Update on summer programming for Junior Bisons
Message from Athletic Director Gene Muller
Dear Junior Bisons parents and athletes,
I hope you are all safe and well. I know that you have been eagerly awaiting an update from Bison Sports regarding the status of our Junior Bisons programs.
Though the University of Manitoba continues to engage in planning for recovery and re-opening, and despite the pace at which the we have seen restrictions lift in Manitoba, I regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel scheduled Junior Bisons programs for the remainder of this summer.
Cancellations will affect Junior Bisons volleyball, hockey, soccer and girl’s basketball.
While our efforts remain focused on a safe return to sport and training at UM for Junior Bisons, the rate at which the re-opening process is progressing will prevent us from being in a position to deliver programming as scheduled.
Bison Sports will continue to provide updates regarding Junior Bisons programming as they are available, however we do not have information at this time about when programs will resume. In the meantime, for those who have paid for registration, refunds will be processed automatically and will appear on your credit card in 4-6 weeks.
Please continue to direct program-specific questions to the following until further notice:
Junior Bisons Girls Basketball: Michele Sung Michele.Sung@umanitoba.ca
Junior Bisons programming is integral to the future of Bison Sports and we value the relationships we have built with our Junior Bisons athletes, and look forward to welcoming new Junior Bisons athletes once we are able to return to training together at UM.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
Wishing you all the best, good health and safety.
