Notice to our athletics community:

As the current public health crisis continues to evolve, we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely. The safety and wellbeing of all of our constituents is our highest priority.

On Friday, March 27, 2020, Carleton University, after broad consultation, has determined to postpone or cancel all Carleton in person events until June 30, 2020. As a result of this decision, Carleton Athletics is cancelling all rentals and programs until June 30, 2020. Our facilities will also remain closed until June 30, 2020.

At this time, we remain hopeful that we may be able to deliver our summer camp program in July and August. In making this decision we will have to take into account guidelines and regulations from the health authorities and the provincial and federal governments.

Cancelled programs for May and June include:

  • Ravens Leagues
  • Ravens Sport Days
  • Senior Ravens Programs
  • Carleton Adult Hockey Leagues
  • Intramural Programs
  • Open Recreation
  • Varsity or Club practices or games
  • Junior Ravens Programs
  • PD Day Camps
  • Group Fitness Classes
  • Aquatic Fitness & Leadership – Masters Swimming, Swimnastics, Lifesaving and Water Safety Instructor
  • Learn to Swim Programs – Children, Adult, and Women’s only
  • National Lifeguard Camp (starting June 23)

Carleton Athletics will automatically provide a credit on your account to be used at a later date. In the event you wish to receive a refund and not a credit on your account, the refund will be determined by method of the original purchase. If the original transaction was completed through our online registration system, we will process the refund online to the original card. If the original transaction was completed in person at the counter (offline), you will need to contact us via telephone to be able to process your refund. Should you wish to have a refund, please email

Carleton University and the Department of Recreation and Athletics are continuing to closely follow the advice provided by Ottawa Public Health and other health agencies such as the Public Health Agency of Canada and Ontario Public Health. We will continue to advise our community when/if there is a change to this closure.

In the meantime, our amazing team is working on a series of fitness activities that you can do from home. We will send out a notification once these activities are launched. Please follow our social media (Facebook & Instagram) for all new announcements and updates on these exciting developments!

Should you have any outstanding questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 preparations on campus, please visit by Carleton’s COVID-19 information website.

We regret the considerable disappointment and inconvenience that these measures are causing to our entire community. These decisions are guided by public health guidelines and government regulations and are necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
