Report indicates YukonU varsity sports program is viable, will likely face criticism


A recently-released feasibility report examining Yukon University’s proposed multi-sport varsity program indicates that such a program is viable with a minimum financial commitment and perpetual annual investments. The report recommends that either a three- or five-sport varsity program be introduced, with the most plausible identified sports including cross-country skiing, basketball, volleyball, Arctic sports, and archery. The report also recognized potential barriers to success, including a potential negative public response, a perception of competition with the local sports community, and funding realities.
