Sports and Enrichment
College life is about developing your academic knowledge and understanding plus so much more. Go Active can enhance your college experience, as you have the chance to take part in a range of physical activities. Taking part in enrichment activities is a great way to develop and maintain physical and mental wellbeing. It is also a great way learn new skills and have fun!
Why take part in Go Active?
- The activities offered are influenced by student’s interests and requests
- Two styles of sessions: turn up and play or instructor led
- Sessions are free or have a minimal charge
Activities that we have offered have included Fencing, Table Tennis, Zumba, Football, and Rugby & Boxing.
The activities are open to all students attending the college
New for 2017
We will be offering students the opportunity to take part in sport or physical activity within their college timetable to help them achieve their academic and personal goals.
Volunteering & Leadership
We can provide opportunities for students to gain Leadership & Sports Leadership qualifications whilst at college, through Sports Leaders UK.
We offer students the chance to develop their leadership skills through a partnership with Herefordshire School Games organisers who have established a Leadership Academy. Students have the chance to attend workshops to then gain experience supporting and delivering in the Winter and Summer School Games along with supporting school sport competitions.
HLC has a very successful football team that competes in AOC Sport West Midlands league, where they play against other colleges in this region. Training takes place twice a week, with matches on a Wednesday afternoon.
If there is the demand for other competitive sports such as Netball, Rugby & Hockey, we would look to enter the relevant AOC leagues.
The College is also affiliated to AoC Sport, enabling students to enter regional and national competitions against other colleges. Previously students have competed in Cross-country and Table Tennis.
