Following the Okanagan Charter, we have a commitment to our students’ physical, mental and social well-being and embedding health and wellness in all aspects of campus culture.

"Being a student and an athlete worked in tandem to better my school experience. Being a part of a team is so special, and there is nothing more important than the relationships I have built over the years with my teammates."

"Playing a varsity sport is not only a great way to make close friends and compete, but it also strengthens your resume. Competing at the varsity level while managing a course load—whatever the size—is proof of strong organizational and time management skills!"


Whether it’s team sports you’re after or doing stuff on your own, you can find your fit for active recreation. The Athletic Centre is where you’ll head for fitness classes, intramural and extramural leagues and other recreational activities. You’ll meet students from both UofGH and Humber.

Extramural Sports

Looking to play sports, but don’t have the time commitment for varsity athletics? Extramural sports are a level below varsity, allowing you to compete on a team against other schools without the rigorous time commitment that varsity athletes face. You must tryout to play on an extramural team.

Sports you can play:

  • Co-ed Ultimate Frisbee
  • Co-ed Dodgeball
  • Co-ed Indoor Soccer
  • Co-ed Volleyball
  • Men’s Basketball
  • Men’s Hockey
  • Men’s Indoor Cricket
  • Women's Basketball
  • Women’s Hockey

Intramural Leagues

Looking to burn some energy, meet new people and play a favourite sport? Join an intramural league.

Intramural leagues keep the action on campus. All players come from Humber and/or UofGH. Meet new people, learn new skills and earn recreational rewards regardless of skill level and experience.

Sports you can play:

  • Volleyball
  • Indoor Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Floor Hockey

I counted on weekly intramural volleyball games to help break up my classes and appreciated weekly Residence Nights in the gym where sports like cricket and ball hockey allowed me to connect with other students in res.
