Active Students Extra is a bit different to the normal Active Students programme. We’re offering you the opportunity sign up and commit to learn a new sport or skill over 6 weeks. The sports on offer are not your average , every-day activities, hence why we’re asking you to contribute towards the costs - these prices are still really good value for money and heavily subsidised.
Do you want to learn how to climb?
Active Students Extra is offering a 6-week Learn to Climb course at Herts Sports Village beginning in January 2016 for a fraction of the normal cost. Spaces are limited so make sure you book early to guarantee your space on the course.
Please note: this course is for beginners and people who haven’t climbed before. Please look at joining the AU Climbing Club if you have climbed before.
What will I learn?
Friendly instructors will teach you the fundamentals of climbing including; how to fit a harness; belaying with Gri-gri; how to tie in to a harness with a figure 8 knot; abseiling; prussikin and belaying with ATC.
The climbing wallat the HSV is an impressive 12 metres high and has lots of different routes, giving you a lot of variety each week.
