The Sports Afternoon is organised twice a year in both Joensuu and Kuopio. The purpose of the Sports Afternoon is to give the students and staff the opportunity to try different sports for an affordable price (or for free), and to get everyone moving for at least one afternoon per semester.
On the Sports Afternoon there is no teaching after 12:15, so everyone is able to take part. Each campus has their own Sports Afternoon programme, which is published well in advance. The activities are organised by SYKETTÄ Sports Services, but participants are not required to purchase a SYKETTÄ sticker.
