UTSC opens fields in the north end
During the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, the Morningside Athletic Fields were the site of the horseback riding portion of the modern pentathlon. Now, the fields have been repurposed with two playing fields for UTSC and community groups.
Since May, groups such as the Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation, catering to at-risk youth and former national player Dwayne De Rosario’s DeRo United Futbol Inc., have been renting the grounds. UTSC interns have been gaining valuable experiential learning by helping out through coaching and other activities, and with the arrival of fall, the fields will be open for students to play ultimate Frisbee, soccer and flag football.
