2021-2022 Season Update
The Department of Recreation, Athletics & Wellness is actively preparing to welcome students back inside the RAWC in Fall 2021-Winter 2022, and has been evaluating the feasibility of re-introducing the varsity program in the Winter term. After careful consideration, the difficult decision to continue the suspension on the varsity Eagles program through Winter 2022 has been made. This involves team practices, competition and travel for approximately 75 students-athletes who participate in the varsity Eagles program at UTM. We recognize that news of the continued suspension, along with other impacts of the pandemic may difficult. Support is available to students by contacting the Health & Counselling Centre or My SSP (Student Support Program), and academic advising through AskRegistrar.
We know that team sports can be a valuable part of a student’s experiences on campus, and encourage all students to participate in recreation, athletics & wellness programs virtually and in-person where possible. As part of our safe and gradual re-opening this fall, we will be re-launching UTM intramural sports, and are planning for the return of the competitive tri-campus league this academic year. Details, including sport options, will be shared soon. Student-athletes who may be interested in pursuing varsity-level sports with the U of T Varsity Blues or other institutions competing in the OUA or OCAA, continue to be invited to discuss options directly with the Director, Strategy and Sport Wellness, Renu Kanga Fonseca (email@example.com).
As we look to returning indoors this fall with continued virtual and outdoor programs this year, the Department of Recreation, Athletics & Wellness is focused on new and existing accessible opportunities for all students to engage in physical activities that support student well-being, build peer connections, and enrich student experiences. We look forward to seeing you this September, in-person or online.
