Sports and recreation


Welcome to our Intercollegiate Programs.  Our program at DC is built around the simple philosophy of successfully combining Athletics and Academics in a first class environment. This philosophy begins with our major league calibre Athletic Department Staff, our always supportive Faculty and of course our top rated Varsity Coaching Staff.

As you tour through our website, be sure to check out the many great areas of interest. Especially our state of the art new athletic and recreation facilities on campus, that include five gymnasiums, amazing 10,000 sq. ft.  fitness centre, indoor 200m track, twin pad ice hockey facility. Plus our outdoor soccer facility, fastball facility and campus tennis centre.

For over forty (40) years the Durham College Varsity Athletic programs have consistently recorded Provincial and National Team and Individual success. Translated into awards this totals 202 Provincial Championship medals over the years; (73 OCAA Gold Medals, 57 OCAA Silver Medals, and 72 OCAA Bronze Medals) – nineteen (19) National Championship medals, fifty-one (51) National Championship appearances and forty (40) CCAA All-Canadians. The winning tradition at DC continues with annual provincial and national success.  Lords student-athletes continue to set the bar academically as well with a record annual OCAA All-Academic Award winners.

Simply outstanding!
