Educational institutions

Many young top athletes study at sports-oriented educational institutions. FINCIS co-operates with educational institutions, thereby reaching athletes regardless of the sport. Primarily, FINCIS educates athletes at sport academies, sports-oriented upper secondary schools and vocational education institutions.

Lectures anti-doping and competition manipulation

Anti-doping lectures and lectures against competition manipulation are part of athlete training at several educational institutions. FINCIS's trainings and materials distributed at educational institutions are free of charge to second-degree educational institutions and sports academies. Also other sports ethics issues will be discussed in the trainings when necessary.

Education and training session as part of vocational education

FINCIS's trainers also give guest lectures to future influential people in sports and those working in the field of sports. Anti-doping education and training sessions are part of the education of those taking vocational degrees in sports. The anti-doping theme is brought forth in sports institutes' training programmes aiming for a degree and the education provided at the University of Jyväskylä's Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences. The training sessions discuss other sport ethics issues, such as the prevention of manipulation of sports competitions.

Secondary school camps

In secondary school camps organised by sports institutes, anti-doping issues are discussed in both training materials as well as at the camp itself. Each institute has an expert trained by FINCIS.
