Top student athletes compete Oct. 17-31

The advent of a new university year also marks the beginning of an exciting athletics season at UBC. UBC's varsity teams are made up of some of the nation's top young athletes, many of whom go on to international levels of competition. Others may end up playing for the National Hockey League (NHL), Canadian or National Football Leagues (CFL and NFL) or playing for professional teams in Europe or elsewhere.

Varsity games are fast-paced, exciting and offer excellent entertainment value says Don Wells, external affairs co-ordinator for UBC Athletics and Sport Services.

"A family of four can take in a basketball, hockey or football game for under $20, and that includes hot dogs," he says.

Admission is $7 for adults, $4 for youths and seniors, $3 for UBC students and free for children under 12.
