OASIS PROJECT – Off a seat, into sport

Proudly Supported by Xercise Fitness

The Shopping Centre, Haxby


The OASIS project, brought to you by Xercise Fitness in Haxby is designed to make playing sport and active recreation easier and more enticing for the population of York and surrounding areas

The project engages people in sport at least once a week. This is through training programs linked to mass participation events, informal opportunities to play sport, get into groups, clubs and societies across the YO1 Radio area

There are interviews with clubs, groups and associations, plus introductory taster sessions held on a regular basis, along with YO1’s team of presenters taking the OASIS road-show to various schools and colleges across the area and promote the project direct!

If your sports club or society is interested in this, then email

Regular events are taking place promoting the project:

  • Kids Boxercise Classes:

    Easingwold at Easignwold Primary School every Wednesday 4pm (open to school attendees only)

    Haxby at Xercise Fitness every Thursday at 4pm – 45 mins (open to all)

  • Spin Classes:

    Haxby at Xercise Fitness – Tuesday – 5:30pm, 6:15pm and 7:30pm

  • Boxercise:

    Key longer term opportunities will include developing volunteers and activators and linking participants to local community groups, clubs and associations exit routes to ensure sustainability. Working alongside SportsAidUK North Yorkshire to deliver a voice for community-based sports clubs & societies. We aim to unite all local communities, improve sports participation and volunteering and educate through workshops on local issues such as obesity, crime and create a lasting legacy. Along with backing from some of Britain’s best athletes, this project is seen to be one of longevity and therefore has no time limit on the length, as this will be YO1’s Legacy.
