Welcome to the CCS

'Your Canadian Pool League Connection'

June 1 2019 to May 31 2020


SPECIAL MESSAGE from the CCS Board  

updated April 24

_______________________________

CCS 2020 Westerns - Calgary AB

Update: These Championships have been cancelled as of today - April 24. 

By Provincial Health Order, the City of Calgary has confirmed that all gatherings of more than 15 people are banned until at least August 31st.

Staging it later in the Fall at the ARC is not possible because the ice will be going back into the curllng rink in September.

All prepaid entries will be immediately refunded in full.

**********

Bad news and good news. 

The bad news is that it's pretty obvious that these Championships cannot take place as scheduled from April 22 to 26.

The good news is that, virus permitting, they have been rescheduled for July 22 to 26 at the Acadia Rec Centre in Calgary AB.

Hopefully by then we'll be able to look forward to getting out and having a great tournament.

CCS 2020 Canadians  – Niagara Falls ON 

These Championships have been cancelled as of today - March 15th .

Given the rapidly increasing seriousness of the Covid 19 pandemic and the urgent need to address it in all possible ways, continuing would have been both lunacy and irresponsible.

Postponing is just not a realistic option.  We tried but the SOTF has no available dates for the remainder of the year.

Everyone who has already paid will be refunded in FULL in short order.

We apologize to all our members who were looking forward to a great tourney and now face disrupted plans and even loss of travel and lodging expense.

We truly tried and a real shame because our entries had already risen to record levels. 

Refunds were processed as fast as possible considering that there was a $2000 a day max on sending out email fund transfers. To speed things up, lump sums were immediately sent out by cheque to the major League Operators.

Take care everyone.

What do we do? Every year, we stage Regional and National 8 Ball / 9 Ball Championships for our Member Pool Leagues across Canada. 


Go Canada! It's amazing what can happen when leagues band together! 100% Canadian from our start in 2004, we've grown considerably and are now exclusively recognized by the CBSA - Canadian Billiards and Snooker Association for all Amateur Pool League Play and related Amateur Pool Championships.

Who's CBSA? They are the governing body for all Billiards competition in Canada as recognized by the World Pool-Billiard Ass'nThey are the ones who decide who represents Canada in official International competition.

We also have friends across the border. The CCS is also directly affiliated with the ACS - American Cue Sports Alliance; an association just like us. That means that their members can come to our tournaments and our members can go to theirs.
