Vanier Athletics

This is proving to be an exciting year for Vanier Athletics! My name is Eleni Giovanopoulos and I will be serving as President of Vanier Athletics for this 2012/2013 school year. Our role as Vanier’s Athletics Council is to organize Vanier sports teams to be entered into York’s intramural program, and promote participation from our Vanier athletes to ensure that you all have a chance to play all your favourite sports and then some! York University offers an excellent intramural program, which is a perfect opportunity for us as students to maintain an active lifestyle during our studies, meet new people to create lasting friendships, and gain invaluable memories! There are both competitive and recreational divisions available, making intramurals open to everyone!

Every year, each of the colleges at York competes for the highly coveted Torch. The Torch is awarded at the Intramural Banquet at the end of the year to the college with the most points. These points are accumulated throughout the year through participation and championships. This year, Vanier aims to win the Torch for the first time in York intramural history! In order to achieve this goal, we must all work together to bring out the biggest crowds of athletes from Vanier College!

I encourage all of you to make Vanier Athletics an important part of your York University experience!
