Supporting UBC Recreation

UBC Recreation remains strong due to the ongoing support of our alumni, friends and the sport and recreation community.

With the generous support of alumni and donors, over the years, we have been able to build a solid foundation to recognize our student leaders.

The UBC Intramural Program currently has three endowed student awards: The Nestor Korchinsky Recreation Award, The Sue Demaine Recreation Award and the Joan Pilcher Recreation Award. These are awarded to our year end award winners for each of the respective trophies.

In addition, two years ago, we launched the UBC Intramurals Fund.  We have been grateful for access to these fund to help supplement student awards and provide professional development opportunities to leaders in the Intramural Program.   This past year, several of our students represented UBC and attended the Western Canadian Campus Recreation Conference.

If you are interested in making a donation, please click here.  Under the team, choose Recreation.

Mentorship Opportunities

If you are interested in mentoring the next generation of students or other alumni currently working in the sport and recreation profession, there are several mentoring opportunities available including Lunch with Alumni and the Rec Summit.  Please email for more information.
