Champs 2017 (#Champs2017) will be Mar 28 through April 01, 2017
Boys & Girls Champs 2017 #Champs2017

The ISSA/Grace Kennedy Boys & Girls Athletic Championships (“Champs”) will begin on Mar 28, 2017 at 9AM and end April 01, 2017 just after 8PM. One thing we can be sure of is that the winning schools on the boys and girls side will be no April’s fools.

You may remember that the Gibson-McCook relays was just over a week ago.

Live Stream Champs 2017

1SpotMedia reprises their coverage of Champs on Pay-Per-View.

You may purchase the event from 1SpotMedia (use the https when ordering or click link) and live stream #Champs any day from March 28 through April 1, 2017.

WARNING: It is expensive in our opinion and 1SpotMedia does well to entice us to purchase the entire event, though many do not watch the first 3 days online.

Represent Your School

Whether you are going to the National Stadium, watching on TV, listening on the radio, or live-streaming, don’t forget to represent your school here on Yowlink. If your school already has a Yow group, join and represent. Otherwise, create one.

As always, stay tuned to Yowlink for more information.
