How do I get involved in intramural or extramural sports?
Campus Recreation is proud to offer a variety of sport and recreation-based programming including intramurals, extramurals, sport clubs, tournaments and special events.
Specific intramural leagues offered throughout the academic year include: badminton, basketball, cricket, flag football, floorball hockey, ice hockey, indoor soccer, squash, table tennis and volleyball. Students are able to register as individual participants and have the option to submit a team list if they wish to play with a group of friends or peers.
For students looking to participate in a higher level of sport, extramurals provide the opportunity to be a part of a competitive team, travel throughout Ontario to compete against other post-secondary institutions and to further develop sport-specific skills (please note: tryouts are involved). Extramural sports include: co-ed volleyball, men’s and women’s hockey and women’s flag football.
