Being a successful student comes first...

Our players are succeeding in classroom as well as on the pitch. 40% of our student-athletes typically achieve U SPORTS Academic All-Canadian status each year. 

Maintaining the balance between academics and athletics is a key component to success as a varsity student-athlete. The Black & Gold Academic Support Program provides Dalhousie student-athletes with resources to assist them in achieving their academic goals. This is a mandatory program for first year student-athletes and optional for all others. The program includes study skill seminars, study halls, sponsored tutoring, and academic support.
