Jacqueline | Faces of Recreation

Jacqueline is an undergraduate student at UBC.

“When I first started playing drop-in volleyball I was received as a part of the team, felt respect, solidarity, and acceptance in that space. The program has received me very well and I feel that I am better connected with UBC, through UBC Recreation.”

Jacqueline has been participating in drop-in programs, specifically drop-in volleyball, since 2018. When she initially came to Vancouver she was unsure of how to stay involved with her sport, but found through the drop-in program a way to continue playing Volleyball. She is now a frequent user of the drop-in program, and comes back to play every week.

Jacqueline’s  Top Pick

Drop-In Volleyball

“Besides practicing my favourite sport, the best part has been making friends. I’ve met interesting people during drop-ins, good friends, and different people that came from other cultures but have the same love for volleyball as me. I love how this sport and the drop-ins can bring people together. UBC Rec is a great place to get healthy and make friends at the same time!”
