Movement for Life
We boost sporty lifestyle and holistic wellbeing. We know that exercising builds up your health and creates joy and energy for all of us – whatever your age may be.
Throughout the time the asset of City of Jyväskylä has been the expertise and research of sports and wellbeing. Finland’s only Masters of Sport and Health Sciences are graduated from the University of Jyväskylä and Finland’s Research center for physical activity and health LIKES is also located in Jyväskylä.
Finland’s capital of movement Jyväskylä, sports clubs and Kesli, Sport Academies and Sport Institutes of Finland and the Research Institute for Olympic Sports, KiHU work all together among the same mission.
Modern center for the sport clubs
Larger and more flexible sport facilities of the new modern Hippos enable arrival of the new sport clubs to the area and improve significantly the practicing and competition conditions of the current sport clubs.
In the future Jyväskylä’s sport clubs will still use City of Jyväskylä’s sports facility reservations. All sport clubs which are part of “Liikunnan lupaus” will also receive 70%-100% support for their of sport facility usage. Sport clubs can also continue keeping their own kiosk in the events organized in the area.
In addition to better sport facilities, Hippos helps sport clubs to develop their own operations and increase their visibility.
