The dates of the eagerly awaited IAKS Study Trip to Vancouver (Canada) are confirmed: Participants, sports facility operators and partners can look forward to highly informative site visits with eight high-calibre sports and leisure facilities in the Greater Vancouver area.
Like the trips in 2018 (Copenhagen, Denmark) and 2019 (Hamburg, Germany), the 2022 IAKS Study Trip promises to be a magnificent experience offering a wealth of background information, exclusive insights and international networking.
Meet the architects and operators of these facilities:

Clayton Community Centre (futuristic community centre, combining recreation, a library, arts and parks)

University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre (serving athletic training, competition, and neighbourhood leisure needs)
Minoru Centre for Active Living (pool, multi-purpose seniors centre and athletics facility)
Richmond Olympic Oval (signature venue of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games turned into a multi-purpose international centre for sports competitions, recreation, health, wellness, and entertainment)
The participation fee is EUR 275 for IAKS members (EUR 345 for non-members) and includes the two-day tour with a coach and tour guide, lunch on both days of the event and a joint dinner on 14 June at selected restaurants. Cancellation free of charge is possible by 30 April 2022. Participants make their own travel arrangements to and from Vancouver; there is the option to extend one’s stay.
