Academic sports services

Academic sports services can join the Finnish Student Sports Federation as cooperation members. A cooperation membership is an efficient way for university sports services to join us in improving Finnish higher education sports. Are your sports services already a cooperation member of OLL?

A bunch of staff members from university sports services all over Finland, the Finnish Student Sports Federation’s Special Advisors for University Sport Anni Liina Ikonen and Jussi Ansala, and 2019 Vice-Presidents Tiina Anttonen and Harri Nurmi at the network meeting in the spring 2019, held at the Mikkeli campus of South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences XAMK.

Network of academic sports services

The purpose of the supporting membership is to create a joint effort by higher education institutions and the Finnish Student Sports Federation to promote the development of Finnish higher education sports. OLL is in charge of coordinating the development work on a national level.

With the support of our supporting members OLL is able to maintain a network of academic sports services with varied activities. The network offers its members the opportunity to have a dialogue between different sports services, exchange good practices, network, and take part in training. A cooperation member is an important supporter of the network of sports services!

The network of sports services offers its members:

  • access to a national network of colleagues
  • the opportunity to exchange good practices
  • networking and training.

All this is guaranteed through two annual network meetings, the network’s joint Facebook group (the link will take you to Facebook) and the electronic Higher Education on the Move databank where we collect useful information for developing higher education sports. Currently most of the content in the databank is in Finnish.

Find out more about the activities of the network for sports services and the network meetings on the Network of university sports services page.
