We want you to be happy and healthy in order to lead an active lifestyle. Being active helps the brain function more efficiently, makes you feel good inside and improves your concentration.
The BTC Active team offers a wide range of FREE regular active sessions throughout the week, meeting the student demand. The sessions are planned to fit in with your timetable so there really is no excuse not to join in with friends and have some fun, be active and become a better you!
If you’d rather spend your free time enjoying other activities then don’t worry, BTC Active also offers curriculum specific sessions through our Active, Healthy, Employable or Active Hour programmes.
To help run the programme, the College has launched BTC Activators, enabling students to take on key roles in planning, co-ordinating and delivering sport across the College
Bridgwater & Taunton College Tackling Inactivity Project Lead Nathan Dyte says:
The BTC Active programme has been put together in order to encourage all students to be physically active. I believe the programme offers a wide range of opportunities that meet the interests of the students. The sessions are set up to be fun, social and accessible to all students, regardless of ability or experience, students shouldn’t be afraid to come along and have a go.
