Local sports clubs

Organised sports are a deeply-rooted tradition in Norway. Many children and young people belong to sports clubs. Approximately 12,500 local sports clubs are members of the umbrella organisation for Norwegian sports, the Norwegian Olympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (Norges idrettsforbund og olympiske og paralympiske komité), which is the country’s largest organisation for children and young people. Norwegian sports clubs are open to everyone. The activities take place on the children’s terms and all children are included regardless of their ambitions and needs. The goal is for the children to enjoy themselves and have fun with their friends. Parents must pay a membership fee for their children to join a sports club.

For further information about local sports clubs in your municipality, please contact the culture department.
