Coaching and Training


Varala Training Center

Varala has a High Performance Training Centre that coordinates with Tampere Sports Academy services. Other cooperation partners include the Finnish Olympic Committee, the city council of Tampere, different sports federations and local leagues and education centres. We aim to offer support for top athletes as well as promising young talents.

The people in our Training Centre are experts in training top athletes. One of the guiding programmes in the Centre is the Sports and Exercise Safety Program (LiVE) coordinated by the UKK Institute and Tampere Research Centre of Sports Medicine.

The services at the Training centre also include a variety of tests and training follow-ups, guidance for proper nutrition, and services in sport physics, sport psychology and injury rehabilitation.

The Training centre operates in the institute’s facilities and surroundings as well as in sport centres run by the city.
