“I joined enerKY because I had noticed that after high school I was not able to play all different games I used to play just for fun and there was no easy-to-go trainings available just for trying some sports. With enerKY community we can take students with us to play floorball, football and volleyball at anytime. We can arrange martial arts tryouts as we did with thai boxing. And I also found myself from pole dance class, which was not likely to happen without enerKY. All exercises we arrange are cost-efficient for students which makes it even more valuable to have this kind of committee at KY!”

“Being enerKY’s sports tutor has enabled me to try all those sports I’ve always wanted (like paintball, wallclimbing etc), but also it has given me the opportunity to get to know students outside my own major or even outside business school. I’ve had a lot of fun in organizing sporting events and it’s been really rewarding to see that there is a lot of interest in our events. Being one of the organizers of the weekly runs has also pushed me to exercise even sometimes when I’m not in the mood to do sports, so being part of enerKY has also encouraged me to move more. Finally, I’ve enjoyed planning and organizing events with like-minded fellow sports tutors, we have had a great team and I’m sure it’ll continue to be that also in the future. “
