The UPEI Panthers have ten teams playing in the Atlantic University Sport and the Canadian Interuniversity Sport. The university recognizes the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of their great new facilities and programs.
UPEI is a hosting site for the 2009 Canada Games. The athletics facility will be the location for some of the highest profile competition for the Games as well as the closing ceremonies. In addition, UPEI will play other significant roles, notably as the Athletes’ Village for the second week, in partnership with the whole PEI community to ensure that PEI hosts a successful Games in August of 2009.
This is a positive development for UPEI, as a significant addition to the sports and athletics platform on campus. Moreover, it will enhance the University’s role as a leading site for provincial and regional sports events, and bring added benefits for student recruitment and in their role as an effective partner with the Island community.
