John H. Price Sports and Recreation Centre

Opened in 2015, The John H. Price Sports and Recreation Centre offers a wide array of programs and activities for the campus community and families in the Sherbrooke area. Discover what this state-of-the-art facility has to offer.

John H. Price Sports and Recreation Centre

Regardless of the roles they play in BU games, Bishop’s students, friends and alumni are all Gaiters.

Athletics

“The Gaiters” moniker was chosen as the nickname for the Bishop’s University football team in 1947. This nickname was adopted to help fire up the enthusiasm of fans – and clearly, it worked.

Today, decades later, Gaiter Pride continues to run deep and strong, not only on the BU campus in Lennoxville but also throughout the world. The Bishop’s University Gaiters have become more than just a football team – what was once just a name for a sports team is now an identity that transcends sports disciplines and athletic inclination.

What we are doing to keep the facility safe:

Custodial Staff are performing the following activities to help reduce possible exposure to flu, COVID-19, and other viruses on campus:

  • Wearing disposable gloves while engaged in cleaning services.
  • Disinfecting high-touch surfaces (e.g., tables, doorknobs, light switches, handrails, desks).
  • Transitioning from routine cleaning to disinfecting activities multiple times daily.
  • The cleaning of any visibly dirty surfaces will remain emphasized as part of the continued response to this emerging public health concern, followed by disinfection as a best practice measure for the prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensing units are located throughout the Rec Center.

Everyone can help take precautionary measures by following the everyday preventive actions for limiting the transmission of viral diseases recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid physical greetings.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
