Athletics & Recreation
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!!
