Two team rooms, including large individual lockers, are connected to the main locker rooms with access to a steam room.

An athletic therapist is available throughout the week to mend aches and pains.

An on-campus soccer training field is coupled with the competition field across the street. Cross-country runners can head out the back door to access a tremendous variety of training trails.


Academic Support

We want you, as a student athlete, to excel in your academic program. At Lethbridge College, that’s an attainable goal. Numerous supportive college staff are available to help you develop effective time-management skills and balance priorities. They will help you choose the most suitable academic program and support you all the way, from your initial interest in Lethbridge College to your graduation ceremony.

Kodiaks Athletics provides a regular study-hall program to assist student athletes with those classes that seem a little more challenging than the rest, including specialized tutoring and regular support from the Learning Café staff in the centrally located library. Your academic success is our first priority.


Scholarships

Lethbridge College offers hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial awards every year and increasing the amount of  financial support for students is a high priority for the Kodiaks.

All Kodiaks Athletics programs offer athletic scholarships. These scholarships are awarded at the discretion of each program’s coaching staff and the manager of Athletics.

As a Kodiaks student athlete, you may be eligible for an entry award based on your athletic and academic ability. To retain these types of awards, which are awarded at the end of each academic term once grades are final, you must maintain a 2.0 passing grade point average and adhere to team and department expectations.

Alberta residents are eligible for the Jimmie Condon Scholarship, a province-wide, post-secondary student athlete award. At Lethbridge College, Alberta athletes in all of our sports can apply for this award, which is provided in two installments of $900 at the end of each academic term once grading is final.

Kodiaks student athletes are also eligible for additional scholarships through the college’s Financial Assistance and Awards Office; amounts vary based on athletic and academic performance.
