The BC School Sports board of directors announced Wednesday night that they would postpone the seven volleyball championships for a week, delaying them from December 8-11. The board made the decision “recognizing that the province is still dealing with the effects of severe weather and that it is currently in a state of emergency,” according to a BCSS statement.
The BCSS hopes that the overtime will allow the championships to unfold in “their traditional format.” The board will meet again on Monday to re-evaluate the championships and “consider any final changes.”
Also, the BCSS has delayed the start of the winter season – which includes basketball – from next Monday to next Wednesday.
“This means that the winter recreational sports season cannot participate in inter-school competition / games until this date,” the statement continued.
The BCSS will re-evaluate that starting Monday.
The soccer playoffs, which had already moved from a provincial to a regional format, are scheduled to continue this weekend.
