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 Student Wellness organized the activity and sees the significance in getting out and interacting with students to help spread awareness of Campus Activities, GPRC’s Campus Recreation Intramural Sports Leagues, and remind students of the many free opportunities they receive simply by being students at GPRC.
