Exercise and sports
In the Jakobstad region there are a lot of possibilities to do exercise. There are a lot of associations and clubs where you can get to know new people who share the same interest as you. If you are in a group or a team you usually have a common practice schedule.
Remember to show up on time for your practice. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the rules set by the association or club regarding, for example, what to wear or how to behave during practice. If you are unsure about something, do not hesitate to ask the others. Most of them will gladly answer your questions.
Most of the associations or clubs have a membership fee for every year or semester. The membership fee helps the association to conduct the activities in a good way. They use the money for paying rent, educating their coaches, buying necessary equipment etc.
Apart from the membership fee, the association also needs volunteers. This may include helping out at practice hours, handling the serving of refreshments at events or maintenance of the association's spaces or equipment. Ask what kind of help your association needs help with. Your help is valuable.
