the new semester is almost here and our new sports program for the spring and summer semester 2017 is ready in time! We have done our best to provide you with plenty of different sports courses and recreational activities to keep your university stress in check and so that you can do your very best sport-wise.
Our new sports program starts on Monday, February 13, 2017 and lasts until Sunday, June 4, 2017. Registration for courses with mandatory registration starts on Monday, February 13, 2017 as well - at 6.00pm. As the rowing courses, which all require prior registration, start on Monday afternoon, we have moved registration for these courses to Friday, February 10, 6.00pm.
The current courses, registration deadlines and time tables are now available for download in the download section of our homepage or can be seen online via the "Program" link. To spontaneously check courses you can not only have a quick look at our homepage but can also use the Uni Mannheim app.
This semester we have added some absolute classics among others to the program for you: besides athletics we are now for the first time offering both Völkerball (prison ball) as well as dodgeball for all the nostalgics among you. In regards to body fitness we have expanded our array of high intensity interval training courses with the addition of gettoworkout, a HIIT course which is completely based on calisthenics. For all the lovers of ballet and functional fitness we are now offering floor-barre, a functional fitness training which combines traditional barre technique with moves from Yoga and Pilates. Furthermore, we have expanded our climbing courses by the addition of bouldering courses and workshops.
We have also got especially good news for the fans of spinning and yoga: We were able to reduce the price of the Spinning and YogaCard to €5 this semester. All the early birds can rejoice as well. Our gym in D2 opens at 7.00am during weekdays since last semester. So there should be no sweat getting your early morning exercise! All further additions and changes to our courses can be found in our current sport program.
Moreover, we would like to inform you about a change of our terms and conditions. The construction of the Friedrichspark sports facilities has accrued additional costs. The day-to-day operations of the sports ground demands the employment of a supervisor. We therefore have to distribute the costs among all participants of the university sports from this summer semester on. Depending on the agreement between us and the universities the costs will be either accounted for by the institutions, their members or pro-rata.

We wish you a great start to the new semester and lots of fun with the university sports courses!
