Have you ever wondered about Conestoga’s varsity sports program? Or, are you a fan of a player or a team?

Or maybe you just want to try and win some great prizes.

To promote varsity sports, a competition is being held until Wednesday were varsity players will be in their sports attire walking around the Doon and Cambridge campuses, hoping students will notice them and engage them in conversation. Students can ask them what varsity team they play for and how their season has been going. Students should then take a selfie with the varsity player and tweet the picture with the following hashtags: #GetToKnowYourCondors #ConestogaCollege #AthleticsandRecreation.

Students must engage at least one varsity player in order to meet competition requirements.

The winner will be revealed at a Get to Know Your Condors day on Friday, Dec. 4 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the rec centre.

Billed as a fantastic opportunity to get to know the college’s varsity athletes, the Get to Know Your Condors day will have participants going head-to-head with varsity players in some exciting sports and recreational games.

Matt Maguire, manager of the Student Athletic and Recreation Centre, said, “We want to raise awareness of our varsity teams and to create student engagement with varsity players and the Student Athletic and Recreation department.

“Studies show student engagement leads to student success. We are here to support the success of our students inside and outside of the classroom.”

Students can sign up as a team or individual to take on varsity players in various sports. One match already arranged is the rugby team taking on firefighters in volleyball. Games will be played in a round-robin style and each game will run for 10 minutes. All games will be played indoors in gyms 4 and 5.

Full-time Doon and Cambridge campus students and faculty will gain free entry into the gym but must register first by emailing Teddy at or Ilana at

Registration must be completed by the end of Wednesday and is capped at 100 participants.
