QuoteThe UQAC Inuk last played in U SPORTS when they competed in men's hockey in the 1985-86 season but will join as a probationary member for two years in men's and women's cross country, women's volleyball and men's track and field, with the potential for more sports in the future. As of 2022, the Inuk also brought back a men's hockey program but will not join U SPORTS until at least 2025-26. They have joined the RSEQ division 2 for 2023-24.The decision to welcome UQAC as a full member to U SPORTS will be voted on at the 2025 U SPORTS annual general meeting.
QuoteThree university teams will be added to the division 2 and 13 collegiate-level division 1 programs. All teams will play 12 games in the regular season. The three university squads will hail from Concordia University, the UniversitE du QuEbec a Chicoutimi and the Ecole de technologie supErieure. ..."[The division 1] league is so good right now that we recruit all the [Quebec Major Junior Hockey League] and [Canadian Hockey League] players," said Element. "But there are so many other leagues that funnel players. So, the more teams you add at that level, the more opportunities that players will get to play the sport that they love."
QuoteStarting next season, teams in the division 2 men's university hockey league in the RSEQ will get an extra 13 games added to their season, played against division 1 CEGEP teams.The league currently consists of three teams: Concordia University, Ecole de technologie supErieure (ETS), and UniversitE du Quebec a Chicoutimi (UQAC).Instead of playing 12 games per season, which sometimes can go a couple of weeks without a game, each team will now get to play 25 games per season.
