Sports afternoon schedule

The Sports Afternoon is a biannual event organised by ISYY, POKA and SYKETTÄ sports services. You can participate if you are student or staff person of UEF or Karelia UAS. The purpose of the Sports Afternoon is to give our students and staff 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 12:15 pm 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.

Archery (organized by Kontiolahti Outdoor)

Are you Wilhelm Tell of your group? Archery is an old sport that you can now get acquainted with under the guidance of an instructor. The group is first guided to the secrets of the bow gun, after which you can choose a bow gun with the right stiffness for your own use. First it is the turn of the practice round, after which the competitions themselves begin! Archery uses a bow and arrows, and optionally accessories such as a trigger. When the shooter tensions the bow, the person uses a string to store the energy of persons arms and back muscles in the flexible arch structures of the bow gun. They, in turn, transfer kinetic energy through a string to an arrow that, when triggered, can leave at speeds of up to 90 meters per second. Will the hit be luck or skill?

NB! There will be now common lift to the place. Safety instructions will be informed to the group before the activity.
