Over 3,250 sign up for free physical activities with Yo! Active

More than 3,250 children and young people across Wolverhampton have now signed up to the exciting new physical activity programme, Yo! Active – giving them the chance to enjoy a wide range of free activities across the city.


The City of Wolverhampton Council has teamed up with Wolves Foundation to deliver Yo! Active, available to all Wolverhampton residents up to the age of 18, or 25 for care leavers or young adults with special educational needs or disabilities.


The Foundation is providing up to 40 hours of free activities every week at the council's WV Active leisure centres, community centres and other locations around the city between now and 2026, while the Yo! Active programme also offers free swimming, gym sessions and court bookings for children and people at WV Active.


More than 3,250 children and young people have now signed up to take part, and others are urged to join them so they don’t miss out on the activities on offer. To see the weekly timetable, please visit To join Yo! Active, children and young people simply need a free WV Active account which can be created online through the WV Active website,, by calling 01902 551010 or by visiting WV Active Aldersley, WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams or WV Active Central.


Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Adults and Wellbeing, said: “Yo! Active is inspiring more and more of our children and young people to take part in regular physical activities. Becoming more physically active can help improve heart health, build strong bones and muscles, control weight and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and it's also a great way to make new friends.


"It’s wonderful news that over 3,250 children and young people have already signed up to take part in the wide range of activities offered by Yo! Active, and I'd encourage other youngsters, parents and guardians to check out what is on offer and sign up so that their children can enjoy free access to high quality physical activities all year round."


Tom Warren, Foundation Senior Manager, added: "We’re delighted with the uptake on sign-ups to the project so far. There are many fantastic opportunities to take part in free sport that really aren’t to be missed so would encourage people to get signed up to sessions and have a great time."


Meanwhile, the Yo! Wolves holiday programme will return for this May half-term, offering hundreds of free and low-cost activities throughout the school holiday, including the Yo! Active programme. Find out more about what's on where at, with details of specific Yo! Active sessions at
