Home to international, intercollegiate and intramural competitions throughout the year, Varsity Centre also hosts recreational and instructional classes, children’s programs and high performance athlete training. During the winter months, the field continues to be a hive of activity under the dome, here students and members can make use of the driving range and a range of drop-in recreational activities.
The pavilion is an open, light-filled space with an inspiring view of the state-of-the-art track, the FIFA two-star rated field and bustling Bloor Street. This is the main entryway to Varsity Centre (including the stadium and the arena) and houses the Blues football team room, a therapy room, the Zimmerman meeting room and offices for coaches and staff.
