RDC marketing and events coordinator P.J. Swales will be extra busy next March.

Swales, along with his staff, will host both the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s volleyball and basketball championships.

“They’ll be on back-to-back weekends, so it will be busy, but an exciting time,” said Swales.

“It’s two of the top championships in the conference.”

RDC goes into next season as defending champions in both sports, one of the main reasons they bid for the finals.

“We promised the teams if they won the league we’d bid for the championships and fortunately we got both,” added Swales.

RDC, which hosted women’s volleyball and men’s soccer last season, also looked at bidding for the ACAC women’s soccer finals, but felt Medicine Hat would be deserving.

“They’re looking at bidding for the national championships and this would be a good opportunity for them to hone their hosting skills.”

RDC was awarded the finals at the conference’s spring meeting.

The possibility of a Westerner Canadian men’s hockey playoff was also discussed, but will be down the road, especially with the financial cutbacks this year.
