Ski Clubs

The power behind all Finnish cross-country skiing activities are the people working in about 600 ski clubs across the country. As members of the Finnish Ski Association, the clubs pay the association an annual membership fee. The association, in turn, supports the ski clubs in every way possible, for example by offering education for coaches and  training camps for the skiers. Furthermore, the Finnish Ski Association plays a central role in helping the clubs' top skiers to reach their best on the international level in the Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cup.
