About Junior Blues

U of T Junior Blues offers a variety of classes on land, in water and on ice designed to teach children and youth the physical literacy skills they need to be active and healthy for life.

The Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport and Varsity Centre are rich teaching and learning environments, where research and degree programs are conducted alongside our co-curricular programs. This gives Junior Blues participants access to faculty and staff who have the latest knowledge about the science of physical activity.

The Faculty strives to create and maintain a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere that is aligned with University policies and guidelines on equity, diversity and excellence. This commitment is reflected in a variety of targeted strategies and initiatives. Our first priority is to support the student experience at U of T. Our programs and scheduling reflect this priority.

Junior Blues strives to make our programs an enjoyable experience for all participants. If your child requires support, please review and fill out our Inclusion + Support form and e-mail us at junior.blues@utoronto.ca to receive more information.

The specific risks vary from one activity to another. All participation in programs and services is voluntary and each participant knowingly assumes all risks associated with his or her own participation.
