Athletics and Recreation at StFX

Athletics & Recreation

StFX students lead active lives. Whether you are seeking organized intramural sports and activities or individual plans for fitness and recreation, StFX has something for you! We believe a healthy, active lifestyle prepares you for the rigours of academic study and sets you up for success.

 You can skate, swim, walk the track, and take advantage of nearby mountain biking trails, hike the highlands or stroll one of the many area beaches. Stroll the beautiful campus or explore Antigonish. If you love the outdoors, you will be only limited by your imagination. 

Prefer an indoor workout? our modern fitness facilities will complement your healthy lifestyle. Our programs are second-to-none. We offer:

  • The state-of-the-art Keating Centre, with two ice surfaces, a gym, yoga studio, aerobics and dance classes
  • The Oland Centre, featuring a pool and two gyms
  • Our brand-new track and field complex
  • A full schedule of recreation and intramural activities
