Briefly in English
Figure skating is a versatile and fun hobby!
Here at Porin Taitoluistelu Ry we want the sports activity to be a joyful and rewarding event for everyone. The number of new skaters is constantly growing. The success of Finnish figure skating in the international level has also given an extra boost to the growth in the number of skaters.
One of our strengths is that we offer something for everyone. Boys and girls of all ages, young and old, have the opportunity to engage in a diverse sport that offers not only ice training but also much more; like expression skills, dancing, etc. Our club has decades of experience in working with children and youngsters. We have a skating school and a skill school. We have competitors in solo skating all the way up to the Finnish Championship level.
During the competition season, our skaters have been successful in regional and national competitions. We also organize competitions ourselves. In addition to the competitions, we arrange an ice show that is very popular every year. In addition, summer courses are an integral part of our club's activities.
Currently we have about 100 skaters. For us, all of our skaters are equal and equally important and we want to positively encourage them to develop their own skills.
Porin Taitoluistelu ry is a member of:
STLL (Finnish Figure Skating Association)

To obtain a deduction, always contact the club treasurer, who will determine the amount of the deduction. The reduction is calculated according to the following formula: monthly payment / 30 * number of days of absence.
The sibling discount is EUR 10 and is reduced as follows:
If the siblings skate in the competition groups, the highest monthly fee will be paid in full and the other fees will be deducted from the other group's fee by 10 euros as a sibling discount. If the siblings skate in the competition groups and in the skating school, the sister discount will be deducted from the skating school student fee as well as the lower competition group fee, so that the highest fee will be paid in full.
Distance learning discount
Skaters studying in another economic area who only participate in rehearsals and competitions on weekends will be granted a discount by government decision on a case-by-case basis.
If the skater's monthly or competition fees are overdue and the treasurer has not been contacted, the club has the right to prevent the skater from entering the competitions and club shows and, if necessary, rehearsals.
In case of any payment difficulties, please contact the club treasurer to agree on payment schedules.
