Together, we will be Dinos today, leaders in the community tomorrow
Dinos Athletics offers student-athletes a high-performance environment, built on a legacy of leadership and a history of academic and competitive excellence.
Consistently delivering outstanding performances, our Dinos athletes have brought home more than 130 Canada West conference titles, over 40 Canadian Interuniversity Sport titles and more than 10 Olympic medals.
The energetic program has been awarded high-profile academic accolades, including a fourth-place overall national ranking in Academic All Canadians.
We lead Canadian universities in Borden Ladner Gervais Awards. The awards are prestigious post-graduate scholarships given to the country's top-performing male and female athletes. They acknowledge athletic accomplishment, outstanding sportsmanship and demonstrated leadership.
Becoming a leader takes individual drive and passion. It requires commitment from educators, coaches and mentors. Dinos work hard to hone their skills, in the classroom and on the playing field.
Together, we can all help them get where they want to go.
Student experiences to unleash potential
Invest in a different kind of energy
Teaming up to support Dinos
The Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation and the Calgary Stampeders, along with corporate partner ATB Financial, have joined forces to support the Dinos.
Each will contribute $50,000 per year over a 10-year period toward Dinos Athletics. This gift will help to ensure athletes have access to top-notch coaching, state-of-the-art equipment and training.
It will energize student-athletes on and off the field. They will gain the opportunity to compete at the elite level. By encouraging varsity and amateur sports, it enhances the community.
Fuse talent with passion to achieve success
When students are empowered to harness their energy and unleash their potential, they can change the world. When they can see ideas turned into action, it fires their imaginations.
When Uber co-founder and UCalgary alumnus Garrett Camp visited main campus at an event hosted by the Hunter Centre that allowed students to ask questions – along with Conrad Whelan, BSc’02, MSc’05, Uber engineering manager and fellow Schulich alumnus – well, it sparked fireworks.
