Artistic Gymnastics in Helsinki

Suomen Taitovoimisteluklubi STVK is a Helsinki-based sports club that specializes in artistic gymnastics. STVK was founded in 1978 and has been one of the most successful, if not the most successful club in Finland ever since. Our current squad members compete in all the levels of women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics from regional kids’ meets to the World Championships.

STVK consists of 800 gymnasts, most of whom participate in recreational (non-competitive) gymnastics for various age groups and skill levels. Only a tenth of our gymnasts are committed to competitive gymnastics. There's absolutely no need to compete.

Our program includes:
•    Kids’ club, ages 2–3 (in the company of an adult)
•    Preschoolers’ club, ages 4-6
•    Several recreational groups, ages 7-16
•    Adults’ recreational artistic gymnastics
•    Semi-competitive artistic gymnastics for boys and girls
•    Competitive women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics for all ages and skill levels.

Both recreational and competitive gymnastics programs promote fitness and fun. While recreational programs are fitting for anyone, competitive programs require an invitation to join after being evaluated by our professional coaches.

STVK's gymnasts practice mostly in Töölön Kisahalli, but in Liikuntamylly as well.

Why gymnastics?

Artistic gymnastics is a traditional Olympic sport and a great foundation for any type of sport or exercise. Requiring balance, coordination, flexibility, speed, strength, endurance, courage and determination, gymnastics will help you succeed throughout life.
