The Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ; literal translation: Quebec Student Sports Network) is the current name for the organisation formerly known as the Quebec Student Sports Federation (QSSF) in English. RSEQ is the governing body of primary and secondary school, collegiate and university sport in Quebec. It also serves as a regional membership association for Canadian universities which assists in co-ordinating competition between their university level athletic programs and providing contact information, schedules, results, and releases about those programs and events to the public and the media. This is similar to what would be called a "college athletic conference" in the United States.

The RSEQ, which covers Quebec, is one of four such bodies that are members of the country's governing body for university athletics, Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). The other three regional associations coordinating university-level sports in Canada are Ontario University Athletics (OUA), Atlantic University Sport (AUS), and the Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA).

The RSEQ is also one regional conference within the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association, the second tier of university/college sport in Canada. The others are the Pacific Western Athletic Association (formerly the British Columbia Colleges Athletic Association), the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference, the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association, and the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association.


The RSEQ's predecessor was initially known as the Quebec Universities Athletic Association (QUAA) when it was founded in 1971 with the reformulations of three university athletic associations spanning the universities of Ontario and Quebec. In 1989 Quebec merged the university, collegiate, and high school governing bodies. The amalgamated association was named the Quebec Student Sports Federation (QSSF). and then renamed RSEQ in November 2010.

The conference has not operated a university hockey league since 1986-87. The conference's three remaining teams (McGill Redmen, UQTR Patriotes, and Concordia Stingers) now play in the OUA. However, the RSEQ continues to operate a College hockey league.

College LeagueEdit

The RSEQ colleges are affiliated with the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). The CCAA has not held a national hockey playoff since 2001. The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) is currently the only other college league in Canada. However, the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) is open to college teams.

Canadian athletic facilities are often listed by their "maximum capacity", which is often an estimate of their largest recorded crowd in the facility. These maximum capacities can and often do include standing room patrons and attendees seated on grass surrounding a playing field. Seated Capacity is the actual number of permanent seats, be they grandstands or permanently in use bleachers. This is why you will sometimes see larger capacities listed for these sites when searching for them on line. When capacity numbers have mismatched on source sites, unless the larger capacity could be confirmed as a seated capacity, the smaller capacity number has been listed here.

Please update with verified "seated capacities" only when the institutions release more accurate official seated capacities.
