Our Facilities

Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Excellence Athletic Complex 

Let the games begin!!! Our new Athletic Complex and Community Centre is now open, marking the completion of the College’s 134,000 sq.ft. Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Excellence. Students, athletes and the HSC community can now access facilities that are the best of their kind amongst independent schools in Canada. 

The Athletic Complex and Community Centre has something to offer every one of our students, including three large gymnasia, a multi-purpose athletics studio, conditioning room, change rooms and significant bleacher seating. Additional gym space also provides more time for skill development, increased practice-to-game ratios, dedicated space for early education and helps reduce the College’s carbon footprint through the curtailing of transportation to outside facilities for team practice.

Prior to the official opening ceremony on May 9, students dressed in their purple and green spirit wear filled the new triple gym for a College-wide pep rally. The HSC drum line and dance team entertained the crowd and Hektor the Trojan stopped by for photographs with students, alumni and donors. Jennifer Bhalla ’93 and Keegan Johnson ’93— 2013 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees—shared their enthusiastic support of HSC Athletics, reminding students about the empowering role sport can play throughout their lives.
