New Moves with the Move U Crew Series!

What’s up UBC?

February is Move UBC month and your Move U Crew wants to help you learn some new moves! New Moves with the Move U Crew is a series of classes that highlights sports that don’t have a beginner program at UBC. So if you want to pick up some pickleball prowess, learn to shred like Tony Hawk, or try out adaptive sports like goalball, wheelchair basketball or sitting volleyball- come check out these classes! These classes are free and for each class you attend, you are entered for a chance to win a Fitbit, Lululemon Yoga mat or a Move UBC Umbrella!

Pickleball – February 4th, 12:00 – 1:30 pm

Pickleball is a great sport that combines aspects of ping-pong, tennis and badminton. This lesson will go over basic fundamentals and have you playing in no time!

If you end up enjoying the lesson, check out the SRC Drop-In Sports Schedule for drop-in pickleball times!

Skateboarding – February 11th, 2 timeslots, 3:00 – 3:50pm or 4:00-4:50pm

UBC has a great campus to skateboard, but it can be tough to learn on your own. Come learn the basics with the Move U Crew and hopefully you’ll be inspired to start skating around campus!

 

 

Adaptive Sports Day – February 18th, 3:00-5:00 pm

Adaptive sports day allows you to try games from a new perspective! Whether it’s your first time wheeling while trying wheelchair basketball, or first time playing a sport without vision – you’re sure to have a fun time trying something different. Inclusivity and accessibility are huge pillars of UBC, so our Adaptive Sports Day is offering you the unique opportunity to experience the resilience every parasport athlete practices to master their sport.
