Champlain Saint-Lambert to host 2015 CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship

June 11, 2014 – Canada’s top collegiate men’s soccer teams will battle for a national title at Champlain College Saint-Lambert in 2015.

The Cavaliers have been awarded the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s Men’s Soccer National Championship, which will be held Nov. 11-14, 2015.

The college has hosted a number of events in recent years, including the 2012 Cross-Country Running National Championships and the 2014 CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship.

“We look forward to this opportunity, once again, to promote the CCAA and the sport of men’s soccer,” said Vince Amato, Saint-Lambert’s Athletic Director.

Saint-Lambert is the largest of the three campuses that make up Champlain Regional College. The school is located on the South Shore of Montreal.

The Intercollegiate Athletic Program at Saint-Lambert has a long tradition of excellence. In recent years, men’s soccer, men’s basketball and cross-country running teams have been ranked nationally. Champlain Saint-Lambert is also the only team from La Belle Province to win a CCAA gold medal in soccer (2007).

Amato is confident the college will embrace this event. “We have a proud tradition in education and athletics,” he said. “By tying in the experiential learning from hosting events like this to classroom curriculum, we believe that we can offer a truly satisfying educational experience to our students and provide a lasting memory for the student-athletes who participate.”

Sheridan College of the OCAA will host the 2014 CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship Nov. 5-8..

The CCAA is a national sport organization that enriches the lives of student-athletes through intercollegiate competition.
