Drop-in Recreation

Three students enjoy a casual game of basketball.

The Drop-In Recreation Program values all aspects of a student’s life, health, and wellbeing. By participating in the Drop-In Recreation programming, you can enjoy a break from your academics and reap the benefits of incorporating movement into your daily life.

We offer a variety of sports and activities, as well as Women’s Only times. Our focus on building community shines through our engaged supervisors and programming. All programs are:

  • Open to TMU students and RAC / MAC Members
  • No registration is required!
  • Open Recreation are times that a space is open to drop in and play whatever you like on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What to Expect at Drop-In Rec

We have four formats offered to ensure everyone can have the experience they’re looking for:
