Inside Athletics


The Athletics Department runs intramural competitions in a variety of sports and activities throughout the year. They're a fun way to get involved and meet people, and you get to be active at the same time!

Athletic Facilities

Providing great athletics facilities is one way we help to promote our students' wellbeing. All Ambrose students are invited to use the fitness centre, the gym, and the squash courts. Using our athletics facilities you can stay fit, relieve stress, and have fun with your friends.

Ambrose students have full access to the gym, the fitness centre, and the squash courts.


The Ambrose gym—or the Lions’ Den, as we call it—has a seating capacity of 600 for athletic events. It’s the home of the Ambrose Lions Basketball, Futsal and Volleyball teams, as well as intramural activities.

Fitness Centre

The fitness centre is a place for athletes and non-athletes to lift weights, do some cardio, and improve their overall fitness level. This facility has state-of-the-art equipment and a fantastic northwest view of the Rocky Mountains.

Hours of operation:

Monday – Friday 7 AM – 10 PM

Saturday 10 AM – 5 PM

Athletic Therapy Room

This excellent facility is where the Ambrose Lions go to tend to their wounds after games and practices. It has a hydrobath for full body submersion, training tables for taping and therapeutic massage, and an ice machine for tending to joint and muscle pain.

Squash Courts

We have two provincial-level squash courts in our Residence and Education Centre. Ambrose students, staff, faculty, and alumni are welcome to use these facilities. A squash pro is also available to help you if you want to get to know the game better.
