The Sport!Mix, what's that?
From mid-September until the end of June - with a short break in the winter and spring holidays - you can rely on Sport!Mix for your daily or weekly dose of sports and fun.
During the academic lecture weeks we offer more than 30 sports sessions for over 20 sports* a week. During the 2019-2020 academic year, for example, students could practice the following sports: aikido, athletics, badminton, basketball, bodymix (aerobics), boxing, fitness gymnastics, European sword fighting, karate, kendo, kickboxing, kinbal, floorball (indoor hockey), underwater hockey, pilates, rugby, strong HIIT, table tennis, urban dance, football, waterpolo, swimming and zumba.
We also offer a number of sports activities during study and exam weeks so that you can keep up your good habits. Research has shown that on average students who are active and stay active perform better in their studies than fellow students who are or do not.
Where and when?
Activities usually take place at lunchtime between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. or immediately after the lectures have ended, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sometimes we also plan activities later in the evening. This way, students who live in dorms and those who commute can find something to their liking.
In Jette, we organise a number of omnisports every week in the Basic Fit sports halls on campus, where the participants, in consultation with the local VUB Sport Ambassador, can opt for a game of badminton, basketball, table tennis, volleyball or 5-a-side football. There is also one indoor football session per week and we offer kickboxing, yoga and pilates in the combat sports hall as part of Sport!Mix.
In the centre of Brussels
In the centre of Brussels, in cooperation with our colleagues from EHB, we provide a number of yoga classes and other relaxing sports.
How join the Sport!Mix?
With a sports card that includes a punch card you can switch between the sports in the Mix as much as you like in the academic year. If one sport is not your cup of tea, simply try another. Keen on more than one activity? No problem, there’s no limit to how many activities you can choose. It’s entirely up to you! However, keep in mind that for some sports the number of participants is limited. Reserving in advance and registering at the start of an activity via the VUB Sport app is mandatory (but thankfully also easy).
