Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation Alumni Association

The Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation Alumni Association (KSRAA) came into fruition in 2005 as a volunteer driven association. They are committed to promoting, connecting and engaging the KSR/PER community as well as informing them of new developments in the Faculty of KSR faculty.

KSRAA represents all graduates from the Bachelor of Kinesiology (formerly Bachelor of Physical Education), Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, Bachelor of Arts in Recreation, Sport, and Tourism (formerly Recreation and Leisure Studies or Recreation Administration), Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Coaching and PhD programs.


The KSR community is a highly engaged, connected and supportive community, and is valued and understood in the broader community.


Promote, connect and engage with, and support the KSR community to enable its members (faculty, students, alumni and partners) to flourish in their academic, professional and personal pursuits in the KSR and broader community.
