Athletics & Recreation
The athletic department staff are looking forward to welcoming back students for the 2014-2015 year. We have lots of activity planned for every level of participation – fitness, recreation, club and varsity . Watch the screens around campus and visit us in the Langille Athletic Centre (LAC) to keep up-to-date and active. A brief synopsis of what we have for you follows:
We have a fleet of 12 bikes that are available for your use. As a means to get to the bank, shopping, downtown stores or for a leisurely ride to see the area and keep fit, there will be a bike to fit your needs. Check at the equipment room for the loan process – remember , if you are under 19 you will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver. That is required only once .
Cardio/Weight Rooms and Courts
As a student at DAL AC , you have access to the LAC for fitness and weight rooms, squash and racquetball, badminton, basketball and volleyball courts. Come early morning , between classes or after your academic day is done; show your DAL AC ID and take advantage of our great facility and equipment. Activity will help keep your mind alert and body fit!
We plan events during the year – sometimes for individual participation, sometimes in groups. In the fall join your house team for a day of co-ed fun softball; in the winter semester, we facilitate downhill skiing at Ski Wentworth; through the year you will see DASA co-sponsored House Challenge events that includes many sports and fun activities. Keep watching email and Campus screens for the next event!!
Free fitness classes for DAL AC students are held three times a week; Yoga on Monday, Zumba on Tuesday and Body Max on Wednesday. Join in and enjoy the fitness and social benefits!! Yoga classes start at 5:00 pm and Tuesday and Wednesday classes start at 5:15 pm – all at the LAC.
