Sporticipate FAQ

Are the weekly sessions free?

Yes. It is only the learn-to programmes and one-off events that may incur a small charge.

Are the sessions for beginners or advanced athletes?

The sessions are for complete beginners.

Do I need to bring equipment or specialised clothing?

No, all equipment is provided. However make sure you wear something comfortable that you can exercise in, and bring some water to keep hydrated!

Where do I sign up?

Sign up to the programme using the link on the main Sporticipate webpage or the link below. After this you do not need to specifically register for any of the drop in sessions. We may ask you to register for some of our learn-to programmes and one-off events, links to which can be found on the website and are advertised through our emails and Facebook page.

Do I need to bring my student/staff card to each session?

No, however you will need to provide your student/staff ID at the session so you will need to bring your card if you don't know this off by heart. You will need to show your registration ticket to reception when you arrive at the Aquatics Centre if you want to go swimming.

Can postgraduates go to staff only sessions?

Yes, staff-only sessions are open to all postgraduates as well as staff.
