Sports Appro 2021

We will have Appro this year after all, in the spirit of exercise!

Sports Appro is a sports event organized by Student Union JAMKO and Student Union JYY on 5 and 6 October 2021. In Sports Appro students of higher education from Jyväskylä collect stamps to an appro-diploma by participating in various sports experiments in Jyväskylä.

This year’s event will be held outdoors and remotely, so that the event can be held as safely as possible due to the prevailing corona situation. The sports repertoire includes a wide range of sports, from experiential exercise to yoga and skateboarding to zorb ball.

Come move around and gain new sport experiences.

The best way to stay informed about the event is to follow the Sports Appro´s Finnish websites.

Ticket sale will begin on Wednesday September 22 at 4 pm on KideApp.
