BE THE FIRST TO KNOW
If you want an exclusive on the release of our early bird membership for the 18/19 academic year and all things BeActive, sign up here.
WHAT IS IT?
BeActive is the social sport and physical activity programme available to all students at King's. Brought to you by King's Sport the programme allows all students to enjoy weekly social sport and fitness during term-time, regardless of experience or how sporty you think you are.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The BeActive programme is open to all students here at King’s, with the aim of the programme to help stay healthy and enjoy some time away from studying with others. Each session is run by a fellow King's student as your Activator, and some have the support of professional coaches, instructors and various national sporting bodies, and importantly - because we know how busy it can be balancing studying and life in central London - all sessions take place on or near a King's campus or halls of residence.
To get involved all you need to do is make sure you're signed up below and then show up to any session with your King’s College London student card.
Please note: If you feel unwell or have an injury either before, during or after a session, please notify the activator present.
WHAT IF I WANT TO TRY A SESSION BUT HAVE NO EXPERIENCE?
Absolutely no problem. BeActive sessions are geared towards trying sports non-competitively, regardless of your level of experience or fitness. There are a couple of sessions, however, that require you to have some previous experience, such as swimming (there is no coach present, you must be able to swim competently and this is just a drop in swim session) and GoodGym (it is recommended that you can run for 15 minutes without stopping – your speed doesn’t matter though!) – please get in touch if you have any questions about specific sessions. To see for yourself, just come along to the next session and jump right in.
It's the summer holidays, so BeActive is taking a break, but you'll be able to sign up for next academic year later in the summer.
Please note: If you are a student living in a King's halls of residence you are not required to sign up as you can access the full BeActive timetable through your BeActive Halls membership.
SUMMER SCHOOLS PROGRAMME
If you're part of the summer schools programme, you can book your sport activities here. It's free! Running 2 July – 10 August.
We're happy to tell you more about the programme and what's on. If you have just been to a BeActive session and have any suggestions, we'd like to hear these also. To get in touch with us or for any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
