WALAPAIS' OPEN SUMMER PRACTICES 2021
Ringette Walapais' organizes traditional and open summer practices again this year at Tikkurila Sports Park in May, in June and in August. At summer practices we enable positive feelings, joy of sports for children, for youth and for youthful adults and develop athletic skills via diverse exercises, different tracks and games.
Alongside our own skating school attendees, junior players - also siblings, parents, friends and children outside our Ringette Club are warmly welcome to attend to our summer practices. There is no participation fee. Simultaneously you have an opportunity to get information about our annual skating schools and ringette teams.
WHAT DO WE DO IN
Summer practices are held once or twice a week. Also this year, the focus will be in overall fitness, body coordination skills, quick sprints and in exercises, which develop body mobility.
In summer training we have a motto: "what we do, we do with concentration and with a real effort, yet not forgetting fun at any point midst of doing and enjoying diverse sports".
It is okay if you get warm and a bit sweaty at summer practice, but instead of extreme physical strain and too serious training - we want to emphasize on social elements and diverse physical exercising - and on the good feeling you get from those.
WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE WITH ME?
You only need to take (weather) suitable clothing for outdoor sports, your own marked water bottle and an open mind.
So that we can plan in advance and allocate sufficient amount of coaches to the summer practice and that we can inform of all and any potential changes in the sechedule - please remember to mark yourself either IN or OUT at Nimenhuuto-events.
We kindly ask all the children and youth outside of our ringette club to register in advance via the form below.
