Get Active

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.

GetActive sessions run on a weekly basis and the scheme works in collaboration with the Students’ Union. Specially designed sessions are available both separately and together. 

The sessions are run by coaches and volunteers, although some staff sessions are organised to be a pitch up and play session. As our aim for this scheme is to help increase participation in sport for our staff and students there is not a charge for any of these sessions. Some one-off sessions might be charged to cover costs of specialised coaching or equipment.
