Intramurals and Varsity Sports
It’s no accident that St. Mike’s has a storied history of athletics. One of our guiding principles has always been that supporting athletics reflects a commitment to the formation of the whole person, with the physical rigours of the playing field complementing the intellectual rigours of the classroom.
Athletics also serves as a significant source of community and school spirit, whether you’re involved primarily with an intramural team or with a nationally ranked Varsity Blues squad.
UofT offers a wide range of intramural and varsity level sports and St. Mike’s has its very own intramural teams that compete! For more information on how to join or create a St. Mike’s team please follow @smcsuathletics on Instagram, or contact SMCSU’s VP of Athletics, at email@example.com
The Intramural program at the University of Toronto offers a diverse range of sports to meet every student’s interest! The intramural program offers leagues in all skill levels, on all campuses, weekend tournaments, and more. Some of the many leagues offered are Glow in the Dark Dodgeball, Softball, Badminton, and FIFA soccer on Xbox!
UofT offers many sports at the varsity level which means competitive competition teams, including a wide variety of varsity-level teams, check the UofT Varsity Blues website to find the full list of teams and tryout information.
