AUBSU asked students what activities they wanted more of and a massive 56% said sports. We've put together a huge, new program dedicated to getting AUB students active. We've got Social Sport, Competitive Sport and our 6 weeks of tuition for you to choose from. And best of all our new Give it a Go programme makes it really easy and cheap for you to get involved!
Give it a go
If you've ever wanted to try a sport, get fit and active or make new friends AUBSU's Give it a Go programme can help. All you have to do is buy your Give it a Go term 2 membership for £15 and you can attend as many of our social sports as you like until Easter (normally £2.50 per session). If you attend just 6 sessions of any sport (or a mix) during the term, you will recieve a free Give it a Go hoody. The sports that are available to you once you have purchased your Give it a Go membership are as followed:
-Yoga -Hockey - Jogging -Football -Tae Kwon Do -Netball -Fencing -Tennis - Badminton
(For more information about what sports are on offer and when each session will take place, click the 'give it a go' link at the top left of the page)
Do you want a chance to represent AUB in the sport that you love? We want to celebrate your sporting talents and help you to perform at your best.
There is currently one competitive team Netball. The team has a level 2 or above coach for weekly training sessions. Trials will take place during week 1 and 2 of term, anyone not selected will be invited to join the social teams.
Teams will be entered into local leagues with weekly matches every Wednesday. If you want to be part of the team but matches fall during lecture/tutorial time don't be put off, speak to your course leader, they're usually really helpful.
Team entry will cost £40 for the year and will include:
- Weekly training sessions with level 2 coach
- Entry into local league
- Free Give it a Go Social Sport Membership
- Training t-shirt
- Team photo
Nothing screams "team" like a great kit. We've teamed up with Viper 10 to give you some of the best looking, top quality kit that you can be proud to wear. Your new team will be visited by a member of AUBSU during your first training session in week 3 for you to take a look at the kit you can get, try it on and place your orders.
AUBSU are very busy developing sports at AUB, however, there are some sports that we just aren't able to offer yet. If you are interested in competing in a sport that we don't yet offer we can still help you with your BUCS entry. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
