GPRC PEAK Kin Games 2018

Have you heard the buzz or seen the posters around campus promoting the upcoming GPRC KIN Games?

Wondering what it’s all about? Let the PE1050 class answer all your questions.

The #GPRCKinGames18  is an opportunity for all GPRC students to get together and have a friendly, fun competition that will promote a positive experience being active and learning about the supports and services at the College to assist you on your healthy living journey, connecting with peers and their campus, and most importantly, students will build fun memories that will last a lifetime.

The games will take place over a four-day period, November 5 to 8 and students will compete in teams of 8-10 with their peers and friends throughout the week for points.

The first two days will consist of team competitions in dodgeball, spikeball, floor hockey and wolf-pong. The third day will be a fun dance competition followed by a closing ceremony on the fourth and final day. There is something for everyone.

The experience will represent a taste of the culture, and vibrancy that is found in the PEAK and Campus Recreation departments at the College.

We encourage all students from all departments, sport teams and friend groups to get involved and help your team win great prizes for Best Dressed, Best Dance and the Spirit Award.

Let’s not forget the Championship team will win full bragging rights as they show off their champion shirts, amazing prizes and have their name etched on the ‘Golden Shoe’ Trophy at the closing ceremony.

So, what are you waiting for? Get involved and spend the beginning of November being a part of the first ever #GPRCKinGames18!

GPRC Howlers Cup Dodgeball Tournament

GPRC Howlers Cup Dodgeball Tournament

GPRC students celebrated the end of the academic year using the 5 D’s of Dodgeball – Dodge-Dip-Duck-Dive-Dodge.

GPRC’s Howler’s Cup happened on April 12 as part of the college’s meltdown festivities to celebrate the end of the academic year, and summer being around the corner. 

The original Howler’s Cup was organized by a past Students’ Association president and was actually a floor hockey tournament.

Our GPRC Student Wellness department wanted to bring it back, and give the students a way to let lose before finals.

And so a Dodgeball Tournament was born.

13 teams of GPRC students came out with most teams wearing matching themed team uniforms competing for some awesome prizes.

 

The Prizes

  • First Place
  • Best Team Uniform
  • Best Team Name

And the winners were:

1st Place Champions – ‘Swole Patrol’
2nd Place – ‘Blue Balls’
3rd Place – ‘Commerce Crusaders’

Best Team Name – Commerce Crusaders;

Best Dressed Team – Mama Mia

Best Dressed Team – ‘Mama Mia’

GPRC Student Wellness and GPRCSA would like to thank everyone who came out and participated in this fun afternoon.

“There was a tremendously positive energy right from the very beginning of the tournament,” said Joel Thibault, GPRC Student Wellness Coordinator. “There were some great costumes and so much attention to detail. This was clearly a tournament students were thinking about and looking forward to since we began marketing it!”

 

Even GPRC’s Farley got in on the action!

GPRC students didn’t hold back and busted out their ninja-like and acrobatic moves to dodge flying Dodgeballs.  The afternoon included many underdog victories that really got teams and the crowd roaring!

Majority of the afternoon saw students coming to watch the event, grab a bit to eat and drink provided by the SA, and cheer on their friends and fellow students. The place was packed from 1-3 p.m. with many instructors and users of GPRC’s Fitness Centre coming to check out the action as well.

Thank you so everyone who made this event a total success! 

Your GPRC SA members joined in on the fun forming the Guardians of Meltdown team!
