Benefits to you as a member of the GC Athletic Centre – BARRIE, ORILLIA AND OWEN SOUND

We are a very unique facility, our members are made up of students, staff, faculty, alumni and community. 

The GCSA – Georgian College Student Association and the SAA- Student Athletic Association supported the importance of a healthy balance to student life and implemented a 35.00 fee for all full time students.  The fee provides access to the Barrie, Orillia and Owen Sound Campus fitness centres, group fitness classes, intramural leagues and tournament sports, campus challenges, 30 for 30, March Mania, professional sporting events and more.

Staff, Alumni and Community are able to join anyone of the three fitness centres and join in with the group fitness and the many special events.  

Georgian College is a membership based college facility. Access to the facility is available to members of the community who have purchased a membership and all full-time Georgian College ID card holders. We have made our facilities, activities and programs available to the greater community. All community members are welcome to join, keeping in mind that there will be closures during holidays and restricted or limited hours of operation during maintenance week and exam periods.
