In English

The sports card is a free-of-charge advantage card for 7-12-year-old children living in Kuopio. The sports card gives children the opportunity to learn about different sports and inspires them to find a suitable and pleasant sport and way to exercise. The sports card is distributed to primary school children via a Wilma newsletter. The Sports Card, which will be distributed this autumn, is valid for the academic year 2021–22.

With the Sports Card, the child can visit the training sessions of the clubs involved in the Sports Card activities free of charge. The training sessions of each participating club can be visited three times. You can get acquainted with the training sessions of the participating clubs by showing the picture of the Sports Card from here below or showing this Sports Card newsletter when coming to the training, for example, from your own phone.

For some of the clubs involved, you must register in advance with the instructor. You can find the participating clubs and their contact information from here below.  There you can find the links to the participating clubs' own websites and their training calenders

The clubs involved in the Sports Card activities are committed to one of the well-being goals of the City of Kuopio, the prevention of bullying and the Thanks For The Friendship activities. For more information on the Thanks For The Friendship activities in Kuopio, visit
