Administrative history

It was in 1966 that Mount Saint Vincent College was granted university status and became Mount Saint Vincent University. Although students frequently participated in sports and recreational activities prior to the institution becoming an official college, it was after this official designation that the Mount became part of larger governing athletic bodies (regional and national), which allowed the Mount sports teams to compete in larger intercollegiate sports competitions. One of the first teams introduced at the Mount was the women’s basketball team (1950’s). Although initially only having women’s sports teams, the Mount quickly added co-ed and all male teams after men were permitted to attend the university, un 1967.

Throughout much of the 1970’s, MSVU held a women’s field hockey team, a tennis team, women's netball team, and a co-ed badminton team. There was also men’s and women’s basketball teams, and a women’s volleyball team. Recreational activities offered at the mount included modern dance, yoga, swimming, curling, bowling, skating, and pond hockey.

Through much of the 1980’s, MSVU held a curling team, women's volleyball team, women's basketball team, a co-ed badminton team, women's field hockey team and women's soccer team. It was during this decade that Mount introduced its first men's hockey team (1980-1986). The Mount’s first cross-country team was introduced in 1985 and retired in 1992. It was also during this decade that the Rosaria Student Centre was opened (1981). Recreational activities offered throughout the 1980’s included alpine skiing, bowling, dance classes, fitness classes, jogging club, kenpo, floor hockey, golf, gymnastics, netball, ping-pong, racquetball, squash, swimming, volleyball, yoga, scuba diving, and riding.

During the 1990’s, the Mount held both a men’s and women’s basketball team, a women’s volleyball team, a women’s soccer team, a co-ed badminton team, and a cross-country running team. It was also during this decade that the Pepsi Weight/Conditioning Centre was opened in the Rosaria Centre (1994). Recreational activities offered throughout this decade included aerobics, t’ai chi, swimming, and intramural sports like volleyball and badminton.

It was during the 2000’s that the Mount introduced its first men’s soccer team (2005). Additionally, the Mount held both a men’s and women’s basketball team, and women’s volleyball team. The last year that the Mount held a co-ed badminton team was in 2003. Recreational activities offered throughout this decade included karate, jazz dance, social dance, fitness classes, and several intramural leagues.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of textual records and photographs relating to athletics and recreation at MSVU. The contents of this collection were largely created by the administration and students at MSVU and by larger governing athletic bodies such as the Atlantic Women's intercollegiate Athletic Association, the Canadian Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Union, and the Atlantic Universities Athletic Association. Athletic topics documented include the athletic publications created by the Mount, public affairs such as news releases and athletic/recreation schedules, and documents relating to the larger governing athletic bodies such as reports, minutes, correspondence, by-laws, championship lists, tournament lists, and participation lists. There are also many documents related to MSVU sporting events and photos and documents relating to athletic teams at the university.
