Recreation Services

Dale Baumgartner, Director

Personal wellness is positively affected by recreational activity because the human body was created to move. With this in mind, Recreation Services includes a comprehensive program of healthy sports activity including: intramurals, club teams, group fitness, and special events.

Participation is encouraged, regardless of athletic ability. All club teams depend upon student initiative to form the club; Recreation Services partners with students to provide coaching and a funding model. Intramurals include flag football, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.

Club sport teams compete in local leagues and include hockey, soccer and volleyball. Trinity Western’s Outdoor Club is also very active, providing opportunities such as whitewater rafting, skiing, hiking, climbing, camping, kayaking, and other similar activities. Group fitness is offered twice a week. Special campus-wide events include: beach volleyball, CanAm soccer, CanAm football, and a co-ed slo-pitch softball tournament. In addition, students have access to a year-round fitness trail that encircles the campus and is suitable for running as well as walking. Sporting equipment is available from the TWUSA Services Centre week days from 9am to 5pm.

Recreation Services Assistants (RSAs) are student leaders who manage the recreational offerings for the University community. Come play with us and become well! RS: “Where Friends Meet!”
