Building Closures

Further to the ongoing planning around COVID-19 and in response to the March 17, 2020 message from the Provost, all buildings operated by U of T Sport and Rec are closed to students, members of the public, staff and faculty until further notice. All athletic, physical activity and recreation programs and services within these spaces are cancelled.

But now more than ever, it's important to stay active! Physical activity has huge benefits for mental and physical health and academic performance. So while our buildings are closed, we're delivering physical activity programs virtually.

Virtual Programs

During the closure, our Fitness & Performance team is sharing daily workouts and exercises that you can do at home without special equipment and household items on Instagram. 

Plus, we'll be launching a full slate of online fitness classes in April. Stay tuned!

Meditation is an effective way to manage symptoms of stress and anxiety. After all, mental health is just as important as physical health. Every week, our Diversity & Equity team is sharing short videos highlighting mindfulness and meditation techniques you can incorporate into your life—and a whole lot more.

Youth Programs

Through Camp U of T and Junior Blues, we offer a variety of classes on land, in water and on ice designed to teach children and youth the physical literacy skills they need to be active and healthy for life.

Research shows that kids who have fun while participating in physical activity are more likely to stay active. Our programs focus on the fundamental movement and sport skills that provide an essential foundation for youth to become more confident in participating in physical activity.
