The gate and the wristband

In the Sports Centre Alfa there is a closed gate and you’ll need a wristband for entry. You can buy the wristband from Impivaara Swimming Centre (Uimahallinpolku 4) after we have sent your personal details to the Centre. If you already have a wristband, you can use it after it has been registered to Alfa. Registration can take few days.

On the wristband you can load ten entries at a time (20€). The first load is done at the Impivaara Swimming Centre. Later you can load your wristband on the internet. Wristband will be loaded on the gate when you use it next time. Load needs to be done few hours beforehand and you have to use the wristband within the next 14 days after the load.

Wristband costs 8 € and one entry is 2 €. For people under 20 years the entry is free with the junior wristband. On the junior course wristbands there is an escorting feature which means that the escort can come in with the same wristband as the practiser. The escort cannot come to training however.
