Athletics


Our Athletics and Recreation department provides students with an outlet to express themselves through physical exercise and wellness no matter what level they are. Regular exercise has a profound and positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood, and gives you the opportunity to meet other students. There are many classes for you to choose from including wellness and fitness classes, as well as Intramurals.

The varsity and club athletics program provides students with the opportunity to participate in high-level sports while continuing their education in hands-on, career-oriented fields of study.

Holland College has a fitness centre, cardio room, walking track, and dance studio located in the McMillan Centre for Community Engagement on the Prince of Wales Campus, and offers fitness and recreation programming to full-time students. Our own Hurricanes Physiotherapy clinic is located on the third floor as well, serving students, staff and the general public.

Register for your fitness centre membership

When you arrive on campus, visit the front desk in the McMillan Centre for Community Engagement to sync your Holl Pass and activate your membership.
