Athletics and Recreation

Laurier's Athletics and Recreation Department offers students dozens of ways to have fun, stay fit, compete game2.jpgintramurally, learn new skills or go for gold in national competition.

Varsity Sports: Laurier has approximately 500 varsity athletes on 23 varsity teams, including Baseball, Basketball, Curling, Football, Soccer, Hockey, Lacrosse, Rugby, Swimming, Figure Skating and more. For information on varsity sports, click here.

Intramurals: Every year over 8,000 students partake in 18 intramural sports that include dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, basketball and ice hockey (to name a few).

Facilities: Students take full advantage of our Olympic-length indoor pool (Ontario's only national swimming centre), air-conditioned squash courts, a fully equipped fitness centre and services, a 30-foot indoor climbing wall and more.

Not looking to become a varsity athlete? You can still join the fiercely spirited Golden Hawk fans who come out to support our varsity teams in football, curling, soccer, basketball and more!
