Through Sport and Active Lifestyles at Kingston, accomplished athletes can hit the court and hit the books, volunteers can reach out and gain new skills, students and the wider community can improve their health and fitness.
Do you compete in sports or athletics at a regional, national or international level? You may be interested in applying to the Sports Performance Programme – helping talented sports-persons balance their sporting and study life. The programme can offer some inclusive benefits such as: free fitness centre membership, sports bursaries, sports psychology and therapy opportunities and a personal liaison officer.
Inspired by the London 2012 Olympics, Volunteers Inspiring People in Sports (VIPS) encourages students to get active in sports volunteering, in turn increasing participation in sports within the local community. Students can simply participate or start coaching, gaining a sports coaching or dance instructor award. It's a good opportunity to gain new skills as well as demonstrate social responsibility and leadership to future employers.
