Keys to History
Among Francophones, team sports were less popular. It was rare for colleges and universities to encourage physical activities in general and hockey in particular. Collège Sainte-Marie was an exception to the rule. With the support of the Jesuits who ran the college, an organized hockey team was established in 1884.
