The Holland College Hurricanes are hosting the Atlantic Collegiate Athletics Association (ACAA) annual general meeting today to Thursday in Charlottetown.
The Hurricanes will welcome the other eight ACAA representatives from Crandall University (Moncton), Dalhousie Agricultural College (Truro, N.S.), UNB Saint John, Mount Allison University (Sackville, N.B.), Universite de Sainte-Anne (Church Point, N.S.), University of Kings College (Halifax), St. Thomas University (Fredericton) and Mount Saint Vincent University (Halifax) to the Prince of Wales Campus in Charlottetown to discuss the affairs of the conference as it prepares for the 2014-2015 school year.
“We are very pleased to be coming to Charlottetown for the ACAA AGM this week,” said ACAA president Mike Eagles, who is athletics director at St. Thomas University. “Holland College, led by Albert Roche, has been leaders in the area of hosting and sport tourism. We are very excited to be the recipients of the famous P.E.I. hospitality.”
This is the second time Holland College has hosted the event and Roche said he enjoys the role of playing host.
“We will enjoy bringing the athletic directors of the ACAA to Holland
College this week,” he said. “We welcome any chance to showcase Holland
College and Prince Edward Island to others. We look forward to three fruitful days of discussions on how we can continue to grow intercollegiate sport in Atlantic Canada.”
The ACAA currently oversees competition in seven sports — volleyball, basketball, cross-country running, golf, badminton, soccer and rugby.
