The U Sports women's soccer championship is a tournament which involves the champions from each of the four regional sports conferences within Canada's university sports governing body of U Sports. The championship features eight teams in single elimination matches to determine a national champion. The championship hosts 11 games over four days at a predetermined host venue. The host team is automatically qualified for the tournament, as is each of the conference champions, with additional berths awarded for the remaining spots. The Gladys Bean Memorial Trophy is awarded to the winners.
