Welcome to the CCS
Your Canadian Pool League Connection
June 1 2020 to May 31 2021
SPECIAL MESSAGE from the CCS Board
January 7, 2021 - Championship Update
CCS 2021 Western CCS Championships
e think the chances are pretty good for the
CCS 2021 Westerns
in Calgary AB . The reason is that not only are the dates the farthest away in late April, the tournament site - Acadia Rec Centre - will allow us to stage it even later in the Spring or even early Summer if needed.
Should the health authorities be able to relax their restrictions as expected early in the new year, the CCS will reduce the eligibility requirements for the CCS Westerns to 2 weeks to accommodate the shorter session leagues would be operating.
Thank goodness that the vaccine is on it's way which does give us hope that for next year we have a good chance of things returning to more normal.
CCS 2021 Canadian Championships
no pool leagues operating in Ontario
during this second wave of the pandemic, once again
we have no alternative but to officially cancel the CCS Canadians for this league year.
CCS 2021 British Columbia Championships
While a few leagues got up and running this Fall, by provincial health services mandate,
currently there are no pool leagues operating in BC or Alberta.
Once again, we have no alternative but to officially cancel the CCS BC's for this league year.
CCS 2020 Vancouver Island Championships
With no leagues operating on Vancouver Island this Fall, we are left with
no alternative other than for CCS to cancel the VIC's
for this League Year.
CCS 2020 Maritimes Championships
With no leagues operating in the Maritimes this Fall, we are left with
no alternative other than for CCS to cancel this Championship
for this League Year. The second pandemic wave has negated staging it later in Spring 2021.
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'n. They 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.
