First Ever Alumni Sports Fest 2024

First Ever Alumni Sports Fest 2024


Our First Ever Alumni Sports Fest March 14-16 on Campus! 


Organized by the Alumni Sports Affinity Group, the Alumni Sports Fest invites you to return to campus for friendly games with students and staff and to attend sessions by some of our alumni sports industry professionals. This first-of-its-kind event not only provides a great opportunity for our students to learn from the expertise of our alumni but for also our alumni to engage in fun sports games with the WS community (more details below)! Whether you were actively involved in sports during your time at Woodstock (or had an interest), or continue to work in the sports industry, this event is a wonderful opportunity to engage in fun games and discussions with our current student and staff community – while they also learn from the expertise of our alumni. Please let us know if you plan to come for the Alumni Sports Fest.

The Core Committee of the Alumni Sports Affinity Group has been diligently working behind the scenes in collaboration with the Centre for Imagination, Sports Department, Community Engagement, and Advancement and Alumni Relations Office to organize the fest. The Core Committee members will also be on campus, actively conducting sessions and participating in sports events.
