Community/Corporate/Alumni Storm Heats are held Sunday, March 25th 2018.


Registering a UBC Staff & Faculty Team

Registration is available online (by following the steps below) or in-person at the Student Recreation Centre. Registration is open until Sunday March 18th, 2018.

Step 1: Find 4-5 teammates

A team comprises as 5 individuals and you have the option of adding one alternate to your roster. You will need your teammates staff numbers, emails, and availability for clinics and event heats.

For this event, there are limited spots for “Free Agents” where you register as an individual and we place you on a team.

Clinics include a safety demonstration, explanation of the race and its route, as well as a chance for teams to practice getting over the wall. For your team to be eligible to race, at least one person from your team MUST attend a clinic. It is recommended that you have at least four individuals from your team attend clinics so that you can practice on the walls.

Ironpersons and Super Ironpersons can attend any clinic of their choice. They must attend a clinic to be eligible to race. Ironpersons and Super Ironpersons will be allowed to practice on the wall at clinics after the other teams have cleared. They will receive an allotted practice time and once that time has passed, they will be cut off and will receive no further time on the wall.

For clinics you just need to bring your student ID card. If you're practicing on the walls, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in, and that you don't mind getting dirty.

Step 2: Register for a clinic

Once you are in our registration portal, you need to complete two separate registrations. First, register for your clinic time. You will need your login & password for UBC Intramural events and leagues – or create an account if you have not registered for an Intramural program before.

Step 5: (Optional) Make a donation

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.

In addition, two years ago, we launched the UBC Recreation Fund (GO758).  We have been grateful for access to these funds to help supplement student awards, provide professional development opportunities to leaders in the Intramural Program and provide support for program initiatives.   This past year, several of our students represented UBC and attended the Western Canadian Campus Recreation Conference.

This year we are excited to announce that starting in 2016-2017, the university has confirmed a maximum match of $15,000 per year for the next five years.

If you are interested in making a donation, please click here.  Under the team, choose Recreation. We look forward to seeing you Storm the Wall!
