Vancouver, BC – Langara is proud to announce that the College has been awarded hosting responsibilities for the CCAA 2019 Men's Basketball National Championships. From March 13 to 16 next year the Falcons will be hosting the exciting competition at the Langley Events Centre (LEC). More details regarding schedules and how to attend will be available in early 2019.

“Langara is a perennial national contender in Men’s Basketball and head coach Paul Eberhardt is well respected across the country. The Falcons will be ready,” said Jeff Harris, CCAA Men’s Basketball Convenor. “The modern LEC provides a first-class venue to enhance the student-athlete experience.”

The Falcons are three-time CCAA Men’s Basketball National Champions (1998, 1999, and 2014). They most recently captured CCAA gold at the Quest-hosted in Squamish, BC, in 2014 – the last time the National Championship was hosted by a PACWEST institution. The last time the College hosted the Men’s Basketball National Championships was just over 20 years ago, in 1997.

Langara proudly displays 25 CCAA titles, 172 PACWEST/BCCAA championships and has produced eight CCAA Players of the Year, 80 CCAA All-Canadians, 28 CCAA Academic All-Canadians and 14 CCAA Coaches of the Year.

“Since 1971, the Langara College Falcons have proven their success on and off the court and field, year after year,” said Jake McCallum, Director, Athletics & Intramurals. “The LEC has a history of providing world-class experiences for all levels and sizes of competition,” said McCallum. “We look forward to welcoming the country to the west coast for an experience second to none.”
