Since 2014 Track and Field sports in Canada have been growing at an accelerated rate, We are seeing athletes from Coast to coast competing and representing their favourites universities and colleges.
Even though most of our great athlete is in the states because the states university and college has more funding and resources available to them,
An example would be a Canadian university offer anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000 in scholarships compared to an American university that would offer students up to $20,000 to a Full-ride scholarship; of course, this depends on how good is the athlete and their scores on SAT, ACT, and GPA.
This ranking is based on 2017/18 Teams’ performances and USports Team standing.
