Learn to Move

Want to try something new but you don’t know where to start? We’ll teach you! Join us for the “Learn to Move” series, where our MoveU Crew and physical activity facilitators will take you on a tour of one of our facilities and lead you through an hour of activity - on the court, in the pool, or in the gym! Take a beginner level swimming class, learn a new sport, or get oriented with our weight lifting spaces. These sessions are geared towards the beginner level student looking to learn something new. This program is for U of T students only.
