The NCAA & Canada Too

from the Indy Star,
After licensing a new football bowl game in Toronto last month, the NCAA will study the possibility of allowing schools from outside the United States to become members. Canada's University of British Columbia and St. Clair College have expressed interest in joining the association. The NCAA's highest policy-making group, the executive committee, asked for recommendations on the issue to be delivered in October. St. Clair College, of Windsor, Ontario, has 5,500 students and competes in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association. It is looking to NCAA Division III in hopes of finding a league for its men's ice hockey team after the OCAA dropped the sport. "College and university athletics in Canada is much different than in the U.S.," St. Clair athletic coordinator Jay Shewfelt said. "It's a much lower priority in terms of government funding and institutional funding."
