2020 B.C. Recruits List: It’s our last call to student-athletes to be part of Varsity Letters’ 15th annual edition!

Hello once again to all B.C high school student-athletes, as well as your parents, and the entire community of coaches, athletic directors and administrators around our great province.

This is our last call for names for the 14th annual Varsity Letters’ B.C. Recruits List, a project which had its genesis back in the spring of 2006 when I worked at The Province newspaper.

Each year since, we have attempted to publish the names of the many graduating B.C. high school Grade 12 student-athletes who are set to continue their athletics careers at the post-secondary level. Last season, we set a new record with over 1,000 names!

We have received hundreds of names from you already and we are so very grateful. If you have sent a name, have no fear… we have it, so there is no need to check.

But if you have not, please read on!

If you are, or you know of someone who is headed towards a post-secondary sports career, we’d like to hear from you.

Here is the information we MUST have: Name, height, B.C. high school you attend, post-secondary institution you will be attending, sport you play, position you play. We need all of them.

The post-secondary destination you have chosen for yourself can be in U Sports, the NCAA, the NAIA, the CCAA, CEGEP, or the U.S. junior college system.

The local universities do an excellent job of keeping us up to date on all of their incoming athletes, but we so often are unable to get everyone headed to their freshmen seasons at U.S. NCAA institutions in sports like softball, field hockey, volleyball, gymnastics, lacrosse, hockey, rowing, etc. 

Please send your information to

We are hoping to publish the entire list sometime later this week or into the weekend. Please keep checking back at or your twitter feed for updates from @htsumura

Cheers and stay safe!
