Upcoming Events and Competitions

COVID-19 Update - Feb. 10, 2022

The University of Calgary will align with Stage One of the Government of Alberta’s plan to phase out COVID-19 related public health measures, specifically the removal of the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP).

Effective immediately, vaccine checks are no longer required for access to the Olympic Oval. The university continues to embrace the value of vaccination as means to keep faculty, staff, students and visitors protected against COVID-19.

Visitors to the Olympic Oval are required to wear masks, except while eating and drinking or during physical activity. Although the province is removing the general public requirement to wear masks indoors as of March 1, the University of Calgary masking requirement will stay in place until the end of the winter semester in April or until the City of Calgary mask bylaw is lifted, whichever comes later. 

COVID Restrictions

Events are subject to COVID restrictions put in place by the Government of Alberta, City of Calgary and University of Calgary  on scheduled dates. Additional safety measures up to and including cancellation may be applied with little to no notice. Please ensure that you have reviewed required COVID-19 protocols and documentation prior to attending.

The Olympic Oval

The Oval is an important and integral part of the Faculty of Kinesiology. As a direct result of the 1988 Olympics, we have superb, world-class training facilities for coaches and athletes at the community, varsity and Olympic level and we are able to create an excellent environment for research and learning.
