Trans Active aims to help the trans community in and around Sheffield socialise and improve their fitness and mental wellbeing through sport in a safe, relaxed environment.
Our activities are open to all trans and non-binary people, including those questioning their gender identity.
Our swimming sessions are open to any trans/non-binary/gender-questioning people of all fitness levels. There's a relaxed atmosphere with no pressure to push yourself more than you want to, our focus is on meeting new people and having fun.
We have private use of the pool area and there are individual changing cubicles as well as communal gendered changing rooms and showers. The lifeguards have been trained to be sensitive to trans people’s needs. You can wear whatever makes you feel comfortable as long as it's safe to swim in.
We will be continually monitoring the Covid-19 situation and the current restrictions in order to assess what other activities besides swimming we can run safely.
Now restrictions have eased up we'll be focussing on running outdoor events in addition to swimming, such as walking and cycling.
