All Langwith students can take part in the College sporting events, whether you are a complete beginner or top sportsperson. The emphasis in College sport is participatory rather than competitive, although we are proud of our many sporting achievements (four Langwith sports teams represented York College sport at the recent Varsity competition with Durham in 2018).
If playing a particular sport is your passion, our LCSA Committee sports reps are keen to hear from you as early as possible in the academic year. We have plenty of teams for you to get involved in: Football, Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Cricket, Rounders, Pool, Darts and many more. Check out the LCSA sports page for more information. You may contribute to Langwith winning the Inter-College Sports Cup.
Langwith also has a running club called 'Langwith Goes Running'. In addition to weekly runs with fellow Langwith students you can also take part in the 5 km Heslington Park Run which takes place every Saturday at 9 am on the grounds of York Sports Village which is only a short walk from Langwith. It's not competitive - it's you against the clock! If you register for the Park Run we encourage you to sign up to join the 'Langwith Goes Running' park run group on their website.
If you want to join a University-level sports club or play a sport which is not available at College level (rowing, for example), look at York Sport. They can give you more information on the wide range of sports the University has to offer.
If you're not interested in team sports but still want to keep fit, you can take part in activities such as dance, fitness training and aerobics classes at the York Sports Village. This is a five-minute walk from Langwith College. We also offer free weekly Yoga classes in the College for you to relax and de-stress.
