Get ACTIVE Takes Off
It’s been a great few weeks for the University’s Get ACTIVE programme, with 387 new registrations in 2023 already!
Students around the university are coming together to enjoy a range of activities, which vary from football and basketball to indoor cricket and handball. Come and join us to find out!
With lots of new and exciting activities on the horizon, the Get ACTIVE team is thrilled to be supporting so many students on their journey to becoming more active.
The Get ACTIVE programme is delivered by a team of committed student ‘Activators’ who have been working really hard since the scheme launch in September to deliver a packed programme of events and activities that is inclusive, engaging and, above all really great fun! We’ll be recruiting more Student Activators in the coming months, so if you’re interested fill in this form.
Student wellbeing is a key commitment of the Get ACTIVE programme, and the team aim to ensure Swansea University students have lots of opportunities to get involved in campus activities and find their ideal balance between academic study and staying happy and healthy.
The Saturday badminton and volleyball sessions at Singleton Campus are proving to be extremely popular with most weeks booking up quickly! It has been fantastic to see so many students coming together on the weekend to get involved in the activities and get to know their fellow students from other areas of the university. After just two sessions, word is getting out about Get ACTIVE indoor cricket, with more and more students joining our Activators at Singleton Campus to score some runs!
The Get ACTIVE team has also been busy supporting this year’s BRIT challenge and encouraging students and staff across the university to log their miles in aid of student mental health! Whether you’re out running, swimming, walking, or cycling… it ALL counts towards the 2023 goal, which aims to achieve a total of 2,023 collective miles! Students and staff have been joining other HE institutions and logging their miles here – please join us in logging yours!
There are many more exciting opportunities for students and staff to get involved in this year! You can check out the Get ACTIVE Core Timetable here but be quick, as some sessions book up really quickly.
As well as a core timetable of regular activity on campus, the team are also planning some amazing organised events and activities for you to get involved in, including mountain biking in Margam Park, social running groups, and Ramadan Football.
We are planning a summer of fun and exciting outdoor activities, including walking, hiking, climbing, and surfing, so watch the Get ACTIVE space! Check out all current Get ACTIVE activities by heading over to the event page, and don’t forget to follow @SportSwansea for news, advice, and updates.
