The Department of Recreation and Athletics believes physical fitness, interuniversity athletics and recreation opportunities are an integral part of a Concordia University education. Its goals are to provide services and programming that enrich the educational experience of students and to offer opportunities for staff, faculty and the local community to be physically active in a safe and healthy environment.
Le Gym fitness centre on the Sir George Williams Campus, in the EV pavilion, is a modern and comprehensive fitness and workout facility that serves as a downtown focal point for instructional programs. It’s easy to get to, located at the metro level of the EV pavilion and linked underground to the John Molson School of Business and the Hall and Library buildings.
Loyola Campus has two full‑length artificial playing surfaces with lighting, including a 3,000 seat stadium; the Ed Meagher Arena and a gymnasium. The Stinger Dome, an indoor playing field, is open November through April for intramural programming such as flag football, soccer, rugby, Ultimate and many other recreational activities.
Campus Recreation offers more than 50 activities to choose from, namely through the intramural programming, including basketball, hockey and ball hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, aerobics, dance, and martial arts, among others.
The Loyola Campus facility is the hub of Stingers varsity sports. The varsity programs, split into two levels (Varsity 1 and 2), give more than 450 elite student athletes the opportunity to represent Concordia University at provincial, national and international level competitions. The Stingers (Varsity 1) compete in football, basketball, hockey, women’s rugby, and soccer. Concordia supports Varsity 2 Stingers teams competing on various regional and national stages inside and outside of the varsity framework, including baseball, wrestling, men’s rugby, and cross-country.
Student athletes benefit from excellent support services, including academic advising and a dedicated study space in the Recreation and Athletics complex on the Loyola Campus. Concordia also offers financial awards to support its student athletes.
