Physical Activity

The Physical section is a chance for you to focus on your health and fitness and have fun along the way. As long as you pick something that requires a sustained level of energy and physical activity, the possibilities are endless.

Improve your football, rock climbing or dance skills or try a completely new sport or activity. Join a team or do it on your own. You don’t have to be super fit or world class – with the DofE, it’s about setting your own challenges, giving 100% and being the very best you can be.

This is normally one of the easiest sections to sort out at the college.  You can either continue with an existing physical activity outside of college or access one of the College’s 6Xtra activities.  If nothing appeals you can talk to the college’s Sports Development Officer who will help you source a sport or physical activity.   

The Physical must be undertaken by taking part in the activity regularly for a minimum of 6 months depending on the length of your other sections. (see How long does it take)
