Each year, more than 7,800 students and 1,000 staff and community members use the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management’s sport and recreation facilities at the University of Manitoba. The Faculty promotes sport and active living through various university and community programs for people of all ages. It has a long history of success in Intercollegiate Sport and prepares future kinesiologists, physical educators and recreation specialists, while producing knowledgeable consumers of physical activity.
