Championships Women’s Final 8


The University of Regina will host the 2018 ArcelorMittal Dofasco U SPORTS women's basketball championship, respectively. Regina was the site of the national competition in 1979, 2009 and 2013.

"We are thrilled and honoured to be selected as the host for the 2018 U SPORTS women's basketball championship. It is a privilege to welcome the best women's basketball players in the country to our campus and we take the responsibility of hosting this event seriously," said Curtis Atkinson, acting athletic director at the U of R. "We look forward to delivering an athlete-centered championship that will be memorable for all athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and spectators. As demonstrated in 2009 and 2013, I know the University and community will show great support for this high-profile event and that it will have a tremendous impact on our community."

The Cougars, who captured their lone U SPORTS banner in 2001, have been one of the top teams in Canada West in recent years, claiming back-to-back league titles in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

The Bronze Baby Trophy

The Bronze Baby Trophy was donated in 1922 by the Students' Council of McGill University. Until 1970, the Women's Interuniversity Athletic Union (WIAU) in Quebec and Ontario awarded the trophy to their conference champions. In 1971, the WIAU was dissolved and the trophy was retired and returned to its donor. McGill students offered the trophy to the Canadian Women's Interuniversity Athletic Union in June 1972.

The figure is a replica of a statue that was in the grounds of Dunfermline College of Physical Education in Scotland, and is a copy of a trophy competed for by the High Schools of Dundee. The winners from 1923 until 1971 are recorded on the old base at McGill University.
