Kick off the school year with Grizzly Day
August 29, 2014

Back for another year, we celebrate the start of the school year with all things athletic on Grizzly Day, Wednesday, Sept. 3 in the Georgian College Athletic and Fitness Centre, Barrie Campus.

Activities kick off with the Campus Recreation “Funskillz Challenge” in the gym (noon to 4 p.m.). Stop by and test your skills in some fun athletic challenges. The top competitors will receive some great prizes.

In the evening, join us for two fun fitness classes:

  • One-hour Zumba class, 7 p.m. This fun dance and aerobics class will be sure to get you moving to some great music.
  • Return of the extremely popular Glow in the Dark Yoga, 8 p.m. Be sure to wear lightly coloured clothing for this one.

There is limited space available for the two fitness classes, so be sure to sign up early at the Athletic Centre to reserve your spot. There is no charge to participate in these classes.

Grizzly Day caps off the “Rez Challenge” with the two student residences competing against each other for the championship title (…yes, there is an actual belt!). Students will participate in dodge ball and other fun activities and serves as a great way to meet your fellow Grizzlies. The action begins at 6 p.m. in the Athletic Centre.

Anyone who participates in any of these four activities on Grizzly Day receives a brand new “Beware the Bear” t-shirt, while supplies last.
