Women's Only Drop-in Sports

Women’s-only drop-in sport hours are one of the initiatives implemented to foster a welcoming environment to female-identifying students, staff and faculty to encourage their participation in sport, no matter the skill level. This supports the mission of the Department of Recreation, Athletics & Wellness to create an inclusive, safe, equitable and welcoming environment for our diverse community.
