MCFT Woodsmen Team

The MCFT intercollegiate woodsmen teams compete in Canadian Intercollegiate Lumberjacking Association (CILA) events across the Maritimes. Students undergo formal tryouts for the Men’s and Women’s A and B teams, and specialize in one of a number of specific events. Depending on their finishes it’s also possible that the team travels into Maine. There are a number of different events students can compete in, including crosscut saw, pole climb, kettle boil, pulp throw, standing block chop, single buck, axe throw, log decking, and more.

Swamp Donkeys Hockey

The MCFT Swamp Donkeys hockey team was started in 2004 and has been a big addition to recreation at the college. There are no formal tryouts, and anyone who wants to join can join. The team competes in the University of New Brunswick (UNB) Intramural Hockey League, and play games at various arenas across Fredericton. When it isn’t game time, the team and other students can be found playing pond hockey on the two frozen ponds on campus. Each year the MCFT team faces off against the UNB Forestry team in a best of 7 series, dubbed “The Forestry Cup.” It is not uncommon for students to bring their parents and siblings to this event.


All students attending MCFT have access to the fitness facilities located in Torunski Hall Residence. The convenient access provides students with the ability to pursue their fitness goals in a welcoming, supportive environment.
