Open Recreation

The College of Kinesiology has committed to providing activity-specific open recreation gym times. Open recreation allows for drop-in use without students and members having to compete for space with organized programs, rentals, or events. With this in mind, Recreation Services and the Campus Recreation program identified a need to formalize open recreation at both the PAC and Education gymnasiums and make it a priority within our facilities and programming. This formalization recognizes the importance of supporting the wellbeing of the campus community through physical activity.

There are a number of unstructured opportunities for open recreation and physical activity that currently exist in other facilities on campus. Activities such as fitness classes, open swim times, squash court bookings, open tennis, and other opportunities are currently being offered. By formalizing open recreation in the gymnasiums it will also allow Recreation Services and Campus Recreation a better method to meet the recreation needs of students and members as well as promote current offerings in a more appropriate fashion.

Please note that the schedule below is suspended during final exams. For current information in April and December, check with the PAC Equipment Room (306-966-1059).
