Try out Active US sessions for free during Refreshers Week

To kickstart the new term, make sure you try all the activities you may have missed the first time around!

For Refreshers Week, we'll be hosting a very special Trial It Week of free activity on and off campus.

Most of our Active US sessions will be completely free between Monday 27 January - Sunday 2 February. There’s no need to book and you don't need to have a sports membership to attend - just turn up with your student card and jump right in! 

The sessions will be led by our student activators, and will either be held at the Sport Centre or the Falmer Sports Complex on campus. Check out the Active US timetable on Facebook and Instagram for more information.

Choose from a range of activities, including:

  • Wheelchair Basketball
  • Cheerleading
  • US Girls Can Football, Basketball and Cricket
  • Badminton
  • Squash
  • Men’s Football
  • Futsal
  • Running (beginners & experienced)
  • 02 Touch Rugby
  • Dog walking
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Dodgeball
  • Netball
  • Basketball 

We'll also be running some exciting one-off events like UV Badminton, UV Spin and an Inner Warrior Women’s Rugby session. Find out more by checking the events on the Active US Facebook page.

In addition to our free Active US sessions, the University's martial arts clubs are offering their first session free for newcomers, so why not try Shaolin Kung Fu, IMA or Kickboxing at the Sport Centre?

And swimming at select pools in Brighton & Hove is also free during Refreshers Week, as part of our Trial It tasters. Find out more about our free swim week and year-round discounted swim offer for students on our webpages.

If you can’t make it to Trial It Week, fear not! Our Active US timetable runs all week during term time and we'll also be running an all new Dance Week next month! From Monday 3 February - Friday 7 February you'll have the opportunity to dust off your dancing shoes and tap your toe to Zumba, Musical Theatre, Cheer and many more!
