The Siberian Huskies are renowned for their strength, speed and energy. They are not only used for pulling sleds in the arctic but can also be a household pet. George Brown College (GBC) athletics, also known as the Huskies, have been focusing on getting some inspiration from the versatility of a Husky as they aim to break some athletics records in the new season.

With students coming in for their new collegiate season starting this fall, the management is expecting a larger participation in sports and fitness activities.

The athletics office located on the sixth floor of St. James campus boasts a fully functional new studio space where all the fitness classes will be held. This is in addition to the gym, which opened earlier this year.

Deanna Oliver, women sports and fitness co-ordinator said as a message to all the students, “Make sure you find us up here, come and participate in everything.”

Elysha Ali, a GBC athletics staff who also works out regularly at the gym said, “It’s a great environment to be in. It’s very friendly and we are very helpful up here.”

Women’s outdoor soccer from GBC debuts in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) this year. OCAA also announced its first Baseball schedule starting from September. Floorball will be introduced as an intramural sport.
