The Goldring Centre is the fourth and final phase of a $98 million Varsity Centre complex renewal. The multi-storey complex, which received a $22.5 million investment by the Province of Ontario, fills a critical gap in Ontario’s high performance sport infrastructure. It is a facility like no other in the province, fostering synergies between sport science research and teaching, sport medicine, athlete training, coaching and world-class competition.
The building has been designed to welcome anyone from the university and local community who is interested in physical activity and sport - from students, faculty and staff looking for a great place to work out, to intercollegiate, intramural and international-level student-athletes coming to train, practice and compete.
The Goldring Centre features:
- leading edge sport science laboratories for teaching and research,
- a state-of-the-art sport medicine clinic,
- a strength and conditioning centre overlooking the Varsity Centre stadium, and
- a 2,000-seat, international standard field house for basketball and volleyball
With the endorsement of several national and provincial sport governing bodies, including the Canadian Olympic Committee, Athletics Canada, Swim Canada, Volleyball Ontario and Ontario’s bid committee for the 2015 Pan Am Games, the Goldring Centre holds tremendous promise for renewing Ontario’s ability to support high performance athletes – a capacity that has been urgently needed for many years.
