Attention All Users
Again this year we will be hosting Community/Student Volleyball Leagues and Tournaments. This will require the closing of the Tennis & Basketball/Badminton Courts at various times throughout the year.
The Tennis Courts will be closed Monday evenings from 6-10pm and the Tennis & Hardwood Courts will be closed Wednesday evenings from 5-11pm starting September 2, 2015 through April 30th, 2016 for regular scheduled League play. We are also proud to again support the Lakehead District School Board Elementary Volleyball Tournaments. These dates typically occur throughout November and December and are now confirmed for Nov. 10,12,18,19,24 ; Dec. 1,2,3,9,15 and as a result, the Bubble Infield will be closed from 6am - 5pm those days.
Sometimes throughout the year it is necessary to close the Bubble Infield for bookings and special events that occur. We will post these dates on the monthly wall calendar in the hall and the website in order to provide as much advance notice as possible. As stated in the fitness Centre Policy, ” The Fitness Centre retains the right to schedule any, or all of the facilities for special events, programs or activities.” We understand that this may present some inconvenience to Court Users, but remind patrons that as a Fitness Centre Membership holder, you are entitled to access all areas of the facility.
Thank you for your understanding.

Wifi (Sept 30/2015)
New College wireless access points are now up and running at the Fitness Centre entrance, and cardio area on the 2nd floor.
Parking Lot Update (Sept 29/2015)
Regular users of the Fitness Centre will undoubtedly have noticed that our residence partner’s construction subcontratctors are still working on site. They are completing site service utilities work, in addition to a number of landscaping and clean up activities. The College continues to be committed to the complete repaving of this parking area but these delays, and the general work queue in repaving work in the city is becoming an issue. Facilities services is working with Campus Development Corp to get this work done, but not at all costs nor at sacrificing quality. When definitive plans/dates are known they will be posted.
Sept 8/2015 News
Following is a brief update on a number of items of interest specific to our community members.
The Spruce and Cedar residences adjacent to the Bubble are ready for student occupancy, but our construction partners have had difficulty securing a paving contractor to complete the work on the parking lot. We anticipate the parking lot to be completed towards the end of September.
The most current information will be posted at the check in desk, on our website (www.confederationc.on.ca/fitnesscentre) and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ConfederationCollegeFitnessCentre)
Thanks for your thoughtful responses to our community members’ survey. Some of you took great efforts in explaining your thoughts and suggestions. It is very much appreciated. It appears that there is much in common between yourselves and our students:
- a sauna is preferred over a steam room,
- traditional electrically powered, programmable cardio machines are preferred,
- a view of the outdoors is preferred by a 2 to 1 margin over TV viewing while exercising.
These factors will be considered by our architects in the design of our new Wellness Centre, in addition to the many other suggestions made.
I also would like to introduce myself - Paul Inkila - as the College administrator now responsible for the Fitness Centre. For those of you who do not know me, I am an avid sportsman, having coached, trained and participated in many sports. Most likely you’ll find me on the local XC ski trails, but I do various other activities through the non-snow months.
I am very much looking forward to accommodating as many of the priorities of both yourselves, and our student population as we transition over the next two years to a new Wellness facility. It is definitely exciting times ahead. See you at the BBQ!

Fitness Centre - New Hours of Operation
Dear Fitness Centre Members,
Please be advised that after careful consideration, and in response to limited use of the facility at early morning and late night hours, Confederation College will be changing its hours of operation this fall to the following:
- Monday, Tuesday & Thursday - 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
- Wednesday - 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
- Friday - 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
- Saturday & Sunday - 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The decision to reduce hours was difficult, but necessary. As with many organizations, we continue to face fiscal restraints that impact our operations. With the exception of towel and locker service fees, membership rates have not changed since 2007. With these facts in mind, rather than increase member fees to cover rising costs, it was decided to alter the operating hours. We are confident that all of our options have been properly considered and that our decision will provide the best level of service for our membership.
We always welcome feedback from our members. If you have any comments or questions regarding this decision, please feel free to contact us.
We also want to remind you that we are currently in the design-build stage of developing a new Student Wellness Centre. This process will include a comprehensive review of operations to ensure we maintain quality service for our members. Updates regarding the new facility, and opportunities for you to ask questions and provide feedback, can be found at http://www.confederationc.on.ca/fitness-centre.
Thank you for your continued support.

Residence Construction Ramps Up
Although there is still much work to be completed before the opening in September, Brian Freeman (VP Campus Living Centres) advises that the construction of these units is always a “sprint to the finish”. He has confidence that Residence will be ready for occupancy as expected.
On a related note, use of the A lot for parking has been finalized. This parking location will be repaved and integrated with the roadway to the new residence. Parking will require use of a red parking pass in September. The lot will be monitored with regular patrols by our parking enforcement officers. Red passes will be provided to Fitness Centre community members with 50 spots available and 32 Red passes will be available for sale only to residents of Spruce and Tamarack houses.
Until further notice, Fitness Centre members must continue to park in the GREEN lots
