Ensure your Club/Group is ready to thrive post-lockdown

We are in the process of updating our Get Active Search Engine and the directory of clubs and groups within it.

Our Get Active Search Engine is a free platform to help physical activity, sport and wellbeing providers promote their opportunities to new and existing participants. It was accessed by over 58,000 users from April 2019-2020 and we are driving people to it through our Active Together campaign.

Recent surveys have indicated that 7 in 10 adults are motivated to get healthier in 2021 due to COVID-19* and children have indicated they would like more opportunities to socialise and make connections following the virtual classes/clubs they joined during lockdowns/restrictions**.

Therefore we want to make sure the Get Active Search Engine provides an updated view of all activity opportunities including clubs, community activities/groups, gyms/fitness centres and parks/open spaces available for us all to access.

Please take a few minutes to now update your Club/Group/Organisation's profile:

  1. Visit www.lrsport.org/directory and use the search function down the left-hand side to find your Club.
  2. Click on your Club and then 'Link to this Organisation'. You'll need to log-in to our website (you can reset your password or sign-up for a free account).
  3. In the Club/Organisation Membership area, select what your relationship/role is to the Club and select 'Yes' to 'Would you like to maintain this profile'.
  4. We will receive a notification of this and approve you shortly.
  5. Your Club will then be listed in the 'My Clubs & Organisations' area of your dashboard for you to edit the profile.

Find your Club in the Directory (to be linked to it)

Update your Club's profile (once linked to it)

Whilst you are there, why not add the sport/activity sessions you provide so users can see what you have on offer? When in the 'My Clubs & Organisations' area, click 'Manage' to add your activity sessions.

To ensure the directory is given a thorough cleanse, if no action is taken to a Club's profile by the end of March, the profile will be removed from our website (club profiles can easily be added again if needed).

If you require any further help, or need your Club removing, please Contact Us using the form provided.

Thank you! Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS)
