What is GetActive?
GetActive is an award winning scheme to help tackle inactivity.
GetActive lets you take part in the sports that you know and love, as well as trying something new for the very first time. We offer a range of sporting sessions in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.
Sessions will run on a weekly basis and the scheme will work in collaboration with the Students’ Union.
Will all sessions be for staff and students?
Specially designed sessions will be available both separately and together. Information will be listed on GetActive timetables to which sessions are aimed at.
Do I have to be a member of a SU sports club/Uni Gym to attend?
You do not need to be a member of any club or the University Gym, you do not even need to be sporty to attend these sessions, just a willing to have fun!
We ask that every session you take your UoW Staff/Student card to show to the coach.
Who will be running the sessions?
The sessions will be run by coaches and volunteers, although some staff sessions are organised to be a pitch up a play session.
Do you offer anything else?
From time-to-time we will offer one-off specialised sessions such as bubble football, glow in the dark badminton to name a few. Keep your eyes peeled for further information.
I don’t feel confident to attend the GetActive sessions?
All sessions are designed and catered for all, our session leaders are welcoming to all. You can attend these sessions with a friend or alone.
Is there a cost?
As our aim for this scheme is to help increase participation in sport for our staff and students there is not a charge on any of these sessions. Some one-off sessions might be charged to cover costs of specialised coaching or equipment.
