The overriding change would be moving the class programme
into the more spacious sports hall. By doing this we would be able maintain the
number of classes being delivered on a weekly basis (28), increase capacity by
50%, and provide a more suitable venue. This would allow the number participating in classes to grow
from an average of 327 per week to around 770 per week.
Reconfiguring the sports hall would also allow the College
to address capacity and equipment availability issues within the gym during
peak times. Implementing these recommendations would increase availability of
equipment from current level of 42% to 54%.
The “be.active” programme, designed to engage casual users
of the College’s sport and fitness facilities, has this year has engaged 1,600
people, which is an increase of 500 on 2011/12 levels. The programme 9 has
provided 9,000 opportunities in terms 1 and 2 for students to participate in
physical activity. Adjusting the “be.active” programme of activities.
