!! NOTE the location of the event has changed to the Niirala gravel football field.

Now it's happening! What? Well the squat is coming back to student life in Kuopio! What's a squat?

Squat is a fun low-threshold game that requires no previous experience. In its simplicity, the game involves using squat sticks (cones) to throw wooden blocks (squats) away from the opposing team's territory.

The Kuopio Academic Squat Tournament is played with teams of four (4) players. The duration of the games is approx. 30 min.

There are 16 team places in the tournament, so be on the lookout for tickets when they go on sale on kide.app on 7.11. at 14.00. There will be music, good company, and sausages on site.

So make sure you secure your place at the tournament and the after-party at Nousu, bring your friends to cheer your team on to victory and come and have fun in an interdisciplinary environment! If you don't get a team pass, this is still a great opportunity to get to know the sport. Kannattaa alkaa siis pikkuhiljaa grindomaan oloja kyykkätaitoja ja kerääamään csapat, sekä kannustustusjoukkoa kasaan, jotta you are ready when this tournament comes around again!

The winning team will be rewarded with a team ticket to the World Squat Championships, which will be held in Tampere on 10.2.2024! At this iconic event, which attracts 5,000 visitors every year, only the fittest cone throwers get to compete against each other. For more information, visit kyykka.fi
