How do I get access to the link?

If you register here you will then receive the link by email.

Why do I need to register?

Due to the nature of the activities we need to have an idea of how many people are intending on using the session to ensure we can offer a high quality provision and the coaches can prepare.

We are also taking you and your childs details as we would for any other activity as it is best practice when delivering anything with children.

How much do the classes cost?

Oxford Active is dedicated to providing support for our partners and families wherever we can. We have been hit hard like many other providers and are doing our best to bring these classes to you for as little as possible.

Are classes are not set price – we understand that this is a challenging time for all and so you are welcome to book onto these classes on a ‘donation’ of your choice.

Our Family Yoga class and Paediatric First Aid Course are FREE to attend.
