Two timing: How the MAC pleases the public and students

Since opening in 2012, the Mattamy Athletic Centre has had to balance two roles. Owned by Ryerson and paid for in part with $20 million in student money, the building has a private obligation to the university and its members. But, also splitting the bill is the federal government, whose $20 million contribution means the MAC has a second duty […]

CIS rebrands itself as U Sports

By Connor Hewson and James Tozer U Sports is the new name and brand of university sport in Canada, the organization’s CEO, Graham Brown, announced at a downtown Toronto press conference today. U Sports replaces Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) as the governing body of university sport in Canada. The CIS name and brand had been in place since 2001. The […]

Athletes need to study: that’s the cold, hard truth

Devisha Binns isn’t the biggest fan of Ryerson Rams’ study hall. The first-year undeclared arts student would much prefer going home instead of logging more hours at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC), where she already spends her time practicing and playing as a member of Ryerson’s women’s basketball team. Binns admits, though, that the acquired additional time at the MAC […]

CIS office relocation could give Rams a boost

Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s summer move could mean good things for the Ryerson Rams. The CIS, the national governing body for university sport in Canada, relocated its head office from Ottawa to Richmond Hill in June. Ivan Joseph, Ryerson’s director of athletics, is hoping the move will bring more national exposure to the Rams. “I think, hopefully, the CIS will be […]

Ryerson’s Ivan Joseph reacts to OHL suspensions

The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) announced last week it has suspended Peterborough Petes forward Greg Betzold, and Belleville Bulls forward Jake Marchment 15 games each for making offensive comments on Tinder. Both players engaged in a “social networking activity” that goes against league policies, including “Respect in Sport Harassment and Abuse.” Betzold and Marchment made unacceptable comments to women on […]

Ivan Joseph receives sports achievement award

What does Ivan Joseph, Ryerson’s athletic director, have in common with former track star and Olympian Donovan Bailey and the Toronto Argonauts’ Michael “Pinball” Clemons? They’re all recipients of the African Canadian Achievement Award (ACAA) for Excellence in Sports. “I don’t think that I am quite at the same level of achievement that those two gentleman (are at), but it’s […]

Balancing grades while playing for Ryerson Rams

In his first year, Rams hockey player Jason McDunough was put on academic probation. McDunough joined the Academic Success course not because he wanted to, but because he had to: in order to continue playing on the hockey team, he needed to get off probation. He was paired with a mentor and spent extra time in the study hall each […]

Search for home field continues for Rams’ soccer team

Two years after the Ryerson Ram’s hockey teams scored an arena at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, Ryerson’s soccer teams are still in need of a home field. “We’ve been able to bring all of our other teams together in the Mattamy Athletic Centre and that next piece is to secure a place that our soccer teams can call home,” said Stephanie White, […]

Rams prepare for big test at soccer nationals

The Ryerson Rams men’s soccer team lost its first game of the year in the most untimely fashion, falling short against the York Lions 1-0 in the OUA final at Birchmount Stadium on Sunday. The game marked an end to Ryerson’s hopes of securing the first OUA championship in school history, though the team will have a shot at glory […]

Soccer triumverate graces Ryerson athletics

Graceland University is not a place where students go to learn about Elvis. About 1,000 kilometres north of Memphis, you’ll find it in the heart of the small Christian town of Lamoni, Iowa – population: 2,300. Amish buggies own the road and businesses remain closed on Sundays. It hardly seems like an appealing place for young students looking to complete […]
