HLC Intramurals

Each semester, students have access to the Healthy Living Center built into their  tuition fees. As a result, the use of the gym and other activities are included. Among these activities are intramurals. 

During the winter term, there are two in which students can take part in if they wish. The first one listed is the Co-Ed Adult basketball. This takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30PM until 10:30PM. The second on the list is the Co-Ed Adult Volleyball, which takes place on Mondays at 7:00PM. More may be put on the list as they become available, for now these two are the only ones listed. Registration can be done online at gobobcats.ca or in person at the Healthy Living Center.

Intramurals are an excellent opportunity to highlight friendships, sportsmanship, and talent. The university is a place where students are nurtured toward becoming responsible and productive members of society. Post-secondary education provides a means of molding students into capable employees or professionals in their chosen fields, and Intramurals give the students a chance to have fun between classes and exams.
