The Envision Financial Athletic Centre is the hub of operations for the University of the Fraser Valley athletic department. The 21,500-square-foot gymnasium on the UFV Abbotsford campus (Building E) opened in 2007 and features retractable seating for up to 1,500 spectators. The main South Gym serves as the home court for the Cascades basketball, volleyball and wrestling programs.
Building E also features a secondary gym known as the Student Activity Centre with seating for about 350 spectators, along with a new high performance centre known at “The Cave”, a fitness centre and locker rooms with showers.
The size of the venue gives UFV the capacity to host major events, tournaments and multi-sport games. When not being used for U SPORT and PacWest competition, the facility provides space for recreational sports for UFV students, staff and faculty. It is also available for rent to the public. Visit the UFV Campus Recreation page for booking information.
