Get Active this spring!

Armidale Regional Sports Council is encouraging the community to take advantage of the spring weather and ‘get active’.

The 2017/18 Newcastle Permanent Get Active Armidale Program will be held in two stages – two weeks of activity in October 2017 and another two weeks in March 2018.

The program aims to help you find new ways to stay fit and healthy by offering a wide range of FREE ‘come and try’ sessions.

Getting active helps you to maintain good health, manage your weight and reduce your risk of chronic diseases.
