Voima Athletic Association

 Voima Athletic Club is a Sudbury based athletic association that sponsors a local soccer team, a jack rabbit program that teaches children to cross-country ski, and a pesapallo team (Finnish baseball). They also have a theatre group — the Voima Theatre Group — and a folk dance group.

It seems to be run mostly by volunteers which maintain the 1, 2, and 5 kilometre cross-country ski trails at Bar W Ranch. I also found out that the annual membership fee is $10.00. There honestly isn't much to see here, and it is kinda boring, but it was nice learning about F.C.A.A. Voima and what it does in our community. Well enjoy the pictures!


From Wikipedia: "Voima is also a cross-country skiing group in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada."

From Northern Life; Feb 19, 2010: "The Voima Athletic Association is celebrating its 70th anniversary [...] The club is active, with more than 80 members, and maintains ski trails at the Walker Ranch on Eden Twp Road."

Voima makes the Finnish difference in Sudbury

Sudbury based  Finnish athletics  club  Voima  celebrared its  70th anniversary  on  February 20th.  While the  festive  audience  was dancing (to the tunes of the Black Tie)  Chairman Esko Punkkinen and former Chairman  Harold Huhtanen dropped in to the kitchen to warm up more  sausages.  Voima  sold  its  Suomi-Ranta  sports and  entertainment area on Long Lake  in 1997. The investment has been taken care of, and today Voima  is able to offer scholarships  and to maintain  a ski school for  children and to arrange  an annual  "Loppet". And the Voima Threatre Group is seen during  Finnish festivals, such as the 2010  GrandFinnFest in Sault Ste Marie.
