Urban Rec - Victoria's Sport and Social Club

About Urban Rec

West Coast Rec is excited to announce that it is joining forces with Urban Rec to create a league and event experience that is second to none in the Greater Victoria area.  Urban Rec Leagues are all about being active, being social, and having fun. As you know, West Coast Rec has been the premier adult coed league sports provider on Vancouver Island- now we are joining the premier adult league sports provider in Western Canada.  The new Urban Rec Victoria will still have the same great things that you’ve always loved about West Coast Rec- we will also have better facilities, a new website and, of course, a new name. At Urban Rec we stress the FUN and social aspect of playing sports with your friends. It really is all about getting out, meeting people, and generally having a good time.

One Goal

Urban Rec has one goal: to provide the best possible experience to our members. Whether it's league nights, theme parties, team trips, social gatherings, or other Urban Rec events, we want to provide an unparalleled experience that you'll remember forever.

Top 5 Reasons

To Join A Team

Play to have fun and make new friends. Being social and getting exercise improves overall quality of life and makes you a better person (Please disregard if you're already perfect).

Play to stay active and physically fit all the while enjoying it. Urban Rec leagues are not like running on a treadmill. You aren't a hamster but wouldn't it be fun to drink out of an upside-down watering system.

Play because your professional career didn't take off and you still have competitive streak that needs to be satisfied.

(Please note: skill Levels are taken into consideration so all the hyperactive jocks / jockettes are in their own league.)

Play because science says it will make you happy. Exercise makes your body release endorphins. Endorphins reduce pain and trigger positive feelings!

Play because you love the game. Speaking of love, maybe you'll meet your next significant other?

(Disclaimer: Urban Rec takes no responsibility for any romantic connections made as a result of joining a team. We aren't love gurus)

Barista / Professional Soccer Mom

I've spent so much time at my son's soccer games that I actually started to like the sport and then one of the other mom's suggested Urban Rec. Now I get to take some time for myself and play indoor soccer once a week and I couldn't be happier. Now I know why my son likes it so much! And the people are great!

Urban Rec is a top notch organization in bringing people together with socializing, networking and well run sports and events! Urban Rec really care about building a better community through sport.

Home Business Owners

Two years ago, we started a home business together as a couple. After a lot of hard work, the business is doing great and we're finally able to take some time for ourselves. We joined Urban Rec to get back into shape and maybe meet some new friends. We were blown away by the amount of amazing people we've met and how quickly rec sports (particularly softball) has become part of our weekly lifestyle.

Art Director

Sports were never my thing, I’m that nerdy girl who got picked last in high school. But a friend and I made an agreement to be more social and get more exercise so we joined Urban Rec and I chose the one sport that I figured I’d have a chance at being good at where I didn’t have to learn a whole bunch of rules. Dodgeball! I LOVE Dodgeball. It’s great exercise and just a blast to play and I’ve met some really interesting awesome people. If you’re looking to get in shape and meet people, Urban Rec is a great place to start!

Get Social

Eat! Drink! Win!

Our Social League is just like any one of our sports leagues. It encourages interaction, fun, and social activity! But instead of scoring goals/points/downs you get to go to a local establishment, receive discounts on food and drink, and enjoy a night out with your team. Studies show that the more you know your team, the better the chances of you working together effectively and winning!
