Athletics and Recreation

Laurier Athletics offers state-of-the-art facilities where students can take fitness classes or participate in intramural sports. Don't just sit there. Climb a rock wall. Take a dance class. Give yoga a shot. Whether you're working out at our newly renovated, 20,000-square-foot Athletic Complex in Waterloo, or taking a fitness class at the Laurier Brantford YMCA, if you've got the energy, we've got a program for you.

The Athletic Complex (AC) in Waterloo includes an Olympic-size pool, a triple gymnasium, dance studios, and a large fitness centre that received a $5-million expansion in 2013. Outside, Alumni Field offers a full-sized, FIFA-certified, artificial surface for both intramurals and club teams. University Stadium is home to Golden Hawk football, soccer, rugby and lacrosse. If you’re not on the field, find a spot in the bleachers and show your Golden Hawk spirit.

In Brantford, you can enjoy state-of-the-art equipment and machines at the Laurier Brantford YMCA.
