Hobby Swim Group (13-17 years old)

This group is an opportunity for a child or youth to enjoy swimming as a hobby without competitive goals. Hobby group swimmers can earn various swim achievement badges (distance swimming, candidate/master of swimming) offered by the Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Federation.

The group is suitable for example for teenagers who wish to have swimming as a hobby,​ but are not interested in competitive swimming.

Hobby groups train 1-2 times per week but you can join more than one group.

Starting level requirements

To participate, a child must have successfully have completed Children's Stroke Technique or Vesiralli 4 (Dolphin pin) or, alternatively, demonstrate the ability to swim a distance of 200 meters and mastery of the basics of the four strokes.


In the Hobby Swim Group we will practice different swimming techniques,​ long distance swimming and ”swimming programs”, without forgetting also having fun.
