Athletics and Recreation

Varsity Athletes

University College students who demonstrate superior skill and attitude and who maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA are eligible to represent Providence as a member of one of our soccer, volleyball or basketball varsity teams. Providence is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) and the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC).

Tryouts for soccer, volleyball and basketball occur at the beginning of the school year and training camps for soccer and volleyball are held prior to the start of classes in September. Please contact the respective head coach for details on each camp. Please see the Pilots Varsity Handbook for further policy details.

If you are an athlete on one of our varsity teams, please fill out an Athletics Medical Form.

Fitness Centre

Stay fit this semester! Our fitness facility includes cardio and strength equipment, free weights, exercise balls and mats and a semi-private aerobics area. Membership to the Fitness Centre is included in your students fees so all registered students at Providence have access, however, students need to sign a Waiver and Membership Agreement Form prior to using the facilities. This form can be completed in the Business Office. Once those are signed, you will receive your own personal FOB that will grant you access to the Fitness Centre. For further information please contact our Director of Athletics.

Lockers

Lockers are available for rent beside the north stairwell of the Hanna Centre and in the gym change rooms for $15/semester. Contact our Student Services Coordinator to rent a locker in the Hanna Centre and our Director of Athletics to rent a locker in one of the change rooms.

Go Pilots!

We love our fans just as much as we love the sports we play and we encourage all students, staff and faculty to attend our varsity games, to share in the excitement of sport and express enthusiasm of school spirit! 

Recreation Opportunities

Learn a new sport, meet new friends or improve your skills by joining in some of our recreational activities! Intramural and club programs are offered for the purpose of facilitating fun, physical health and fitness, spiritual maturity and social interaction at a non-varsity level. There are opportunities throughout the school year to participate in intramurals such as ultimate frisbee, floor hockey and indoor soccer and Providence offers club sports in golf and hockey (which plays in a recreational league). Providence also has one of two certified disc golf courses in Manitoba that covers a large portion of campus and offers a fun and relaxing way to be outside.

Instructions

How to Play

Disc golf is played by throwing flying discs (Frisbees) towards a chain basket. The objective is to land the disc in the chain basket with as few throws and penalties as possible. The winner is the player with the lowest score after 9 or 18 holes.

  • A golfer's first throw at each hole must be made with both feet on the correct tee pad.
  • After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the chain basket always throws first. Other players in the group should stay behind the player throwing.
  • Fairway throws and putts must be made with either foot on the exact spot (lie) where the disc came to rest with the other foot no closer to the chain basket than the foot on the lie. A player may not step past their lie when putting within 10 meters of the chain basket until the disc has come to rest.

A disc that is suspended by the chains or basket completes that hole. Your score is the number of throws it took to complete the hole. For the next hole the player with the lowest score on the previous hole is the first to tee off. One round of disc golf is typically 9 or 18 holes
