To be able to offer students sports courses again and at the same time comply with the regulations of the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance NRW, the University Sports Center, or HSZ for short, has developed a transitional sports program, which it launched it last Monday. The transitional sports program is initially still limited to contactless sports without the need for shared sports equipment. So far, the transitional program has met with a positive response. “The sports courses are quickly fully booked, and we see the high demand for sports activities in this extraordinary situation,” says Peter Lynen, Head of HSZ.
Spaced out 3.50 meters from one another, the participants can now finally train again under the tutelage of University Sports Center instructors. The distances are clearly marked on the floor for everyone to see, making it very easy to pay attention to the required minimum distances while also giving everyone enough space for their exercises. Each offer is a 60-minute self-contained unit at the beginner level. Places are allocated by booking single appointments. In this way, as many different athletes as possible can have the opportunity to participate in the courses. The water sports offers at the Wildenhof water sports facility, which can be carried out individually, will also take place again. Canoe polo training on the Blausteinsee has also been resumed, with particular attention to distance requirements. The tennis courts at the Professor-Pirlet-Straße can also be booked again.

Due to the current situation, however, the usual University Sports Center summer events have to be canceled. These include the RWTH FH Sports Day powered by Sparkasse and the Lousberglauf powered by STAWAG.
