Sports Activities in the Winter Semester – “Snow Events” Can Take Place

September 18th, 2020 | by

The University Sports Centre (HSZ) will offer an extensive sports program in the winter semester despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The HSZ has sought to provide a wide range of sports activities and will communicate the new sports program under the title of “WiSe 20/21 – Restricted Program.” In coordination with the crisis management team, concepts have been developed to make an extensive sports program possible under the strict distancing and hygiene regulations in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I am pleased that we will again be able to offer all sports enthusiasts a comprehensive programme next winter semester. It will certainly also help to make it easier for first-year students to make contacts and to feel at home at RWTH right from the start,” says Peter Lynen, head of the HSZ.

Although the HSZ had to cancel major sports events in the winter semester, the snow events in the neighboring Netherlands can take place at Landgraaf Skiing Hall. However, the number of maximum participants will be significanty reduced, so as to make bus travel safe and guarantee that the participating groups are small.

Unfortunately, however, the “Extra Tours” originally scheduled for the 20/21 winter semester must be cancelled.
