Courses and topics


The swimming course is an opportunity to become a better swimmer in the best swimming facilities in the Faroe Islands - regardless if you are a beginner or a elite swimmer.


The football course is about determination, perseverance and fun. With Jón Pauli (women’s national team) as the coach the aim is to create conditions where every student gets the opportunity to develop and progress as a football player - beginner or elite level. The facilities for football are very good. With the brand new indoor football field Marghøllin it is possible to play no matter what the Faroese weather throws at you. Furthermore it is possible to play outdoor on sunny days at the football field at Vágseiðið
