Licenses and insurance

Pursuant to the general competition and disciplinary rules of the Finnish Gymnastics Association, every athlete participating in competitions and events under the Gymnastics Association must have a valid competition permit, ie license. On this page you will find, among other things, product descriptions for licenses and insurance, as well as instructions for obtaining licenses and insurance.

Licenses are purchased through the club's Hoika member service program. You can choose your own member club here . Read the Quick Start Guide before purchasing licenses.

License information is transferred from Hoika to the Race Service automatically. Automatic license updates are run three times a day (including weekends): 6:00, 11:00 and 16:00.

We recommend that you send e-mails and documents containing personal identification numbers by secure e-mail. You can send a secure e-mail to the Gymnastics Association here:

Every licensed athlete must have comprehensive insurance for competitive sports. Sports security insurance can be purchased with the license.

The gymnastics association's partner in insurance is Pohjola Insurance. Pohjola Insurance's Sports Security is reimbursed when the injury occurs as a result of a sudden event. For example, the Achilles tendon ruptures, the knee goes out of place.

Care allowance EUR 15,000, Deductible EUR 100 for each accident. Injury compensation 30,000 e. Death compensation 8,500 e.
Note. The insurance for racing licenses for children under 12 years of age is not deductible and is also valid for other sports.
