As we begin to prepare for the exciting opening of CARSA this spring, we take a look back at some of the greatest moments within the walls of McKinnon Gymnasium for the Vikes, UVic and the entire community.
Two-year-old cyclist Declan is one of thousands of people with disabilities who have benefitted from CanAssist's customized technologies over the past 15 years. The move into CARSA will make its technology development and on-campus collaboration activities more effective than ever before.
Peninsula Co-op has come on board as the first coporate naming partner for CARSA, UVic's Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities. A special announcement was held in front of the climbing tower to reveal the partnership on Nov. 4.
Local media were invited inside CARSA Aug. 6 for a sneak peek at the facility, under construction and approximately 80 per cent complete.
CARSA will open in 2015. What's in it for you? Take a video tour and learn more about what's inside the new centre.
