Toronto Varsity Blues

"Varsity Blues" is the name of the sports teams of the University of Toronto, located in Toronto, Ontario. Their home rink is Varsity Arena. They are members of Ontario University Athletics (OUA) and U Sports (formerly known as CIS).

HistoryEdit

The Toronto Varsity Blues hockey team competed in the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (CIAU Central) from its inception in 1902-03 and its successor conference, the Quebec-Ontario Athletic Association (QOAA), from 1955-56 until the conference ended in 1970-71. In 1971-72 they joined the Ontario Universities Athletic Association (OUAA) once the Ontario and Quebec conferences were re-organized along provincial lines. The OUAA changed names to OUA in 1997-98.
