Friskis&Svettis is an organisation which is comprised of 156 non-profit sports associations.
One condition to be a Friskis&Svettis association is a membership in Friskis&Svettis Riks, the umbrella
association, and connection to the Swedish Sports Confederation via a special sports federation.
Each member association has a number of rights and as number of obligations. This is regulated in our
joint steering document which is:
- Terms and conditions for member associations in Friskis&Svettis
- Friskis&Svettis Riks Regulations
- Individual association Standard Regulation
- Rules and recommendations
- Friskis&Svettis values
Each association is responsible for its finances. The operation is financed by member and training fees.
Possible earnings always go back to the operation. Just like all sports associations, each association has
the possibility to i.e. obtain local activity support for their youth activities.
Each association is responsible for its members and stewards. The non-profit commitment is the
Friskis&Svettis business? primary success factor.
The training offer varies in the associations according to the association's different stipulations.
However it is collective that all leaders and instructors are educated and certified/licenced via Friskis&Svettis Riks.
The education is the base keeping evaluations and culture alive.
A condition for ensuring that member democracy works is that all members have the possibility to
influence the operation and the development in their association. Each year all members in Friskis&Svettis
are invited to an annual meeting by their association. At each annual meeting a board is appointed,
which the members assign to lead the association's business during the operational year.
