In addition to a good outdoor arena at Ikornnes stadium, you will be able to exercise indoor during wintertime. In the sport centre close to the town centre, you find a jumping pit and athletes can throw the ball, discus, and run with their spiked shoes.

In Sykkylven there are two athletic-clubs: Sykkylven Idrettslag (SIL) or Ikornnes Idrettslag. (IIL) They are competitive but cooperate with each other. “New athletes are welcome”, the headman of SIL, Lars Kåre Aurdal, says.  “It doesn´t matter if your shirt is yellow or red, but to compete you must be a member of a sports-team.”

In winter the athletes work on their agility-skills, as well as speed and strength. During the summer focus is on improving technique at Ikornnes Stadium.

Thomas Sletvold works as a coach in both clubs. Thomas has been an active athlete for many years. Now he shares his knowledge and experience with younger athletes. According to Lars Kåre, Thomas is a great resource for athletes in Sykkylven.

One who got to learn is Herman Aurdal; a talent who has won several national medals. Herman became interested in athletics when he took part in a school championship in 2010.
