Joensuu Sports Afternoon 13.2.2018

Kirjoitettu: 23.1.2018 12:38

The Sports Afternoon is a biannual event organised by SYKETTÄ sports services. You can participate if you are student or staff person of UEF or KUAS. The purpose of the Sports Afternoon is to give our students an opportunity to try new sports for a very affordable price (or for free) and to get everyone moving at least for one afternoon per semester. There will be no teaching after 12.15pm so everyone is able to take part – and we recommend you do! There is a great choice of activities, the list of which is below. Once you have chosen what you would like to do, please remember to book yourself a place (instructions on how to book next to each activity description). We recommend you book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment – these activities tend to fill up fast.

After you have done your exercise you can reward yourself at the AFTERPARTY at Ilona (see the info below). There are a limited number of tickets available to this party, so be quick to get yours.

NB! You can participate in all Sports Afternoon activities also without Sykettä sticker!

Members of ISYY and POKA are insuranced by OLL (the Finnish Student Sports Federation). More information about from OLL website (only in finnish).
