Welcome to Finland


Dear EPC Member Nations

On behalf of EPC and LOC of EPYG22 I would like to invite you to the European Paralympic Youth Games, EPYG, which will take place in Lahti, Finland on June 27th to July 4th, 2022.

The EPC hopes to see many of you taking part in this competition that offers a great experience about international competition for young athletes. For many athletes EPYG is the first international competition but to all athletes it is a big step towards becoming an elite athlete. Besides tough but fair competition EPYG is also the place to make many new friends and get to know athletes from different sports across Europe.

Attached you will find the invitation package including all necessary information as well as the first entry form. The LOC of EPYG22 is happy to help you with any matters related to the event.

Yours Sincerely,


Acting President EPC


Pajulahti Olympic and Paralympic Training Center welcomes the best youth para-athletes across Europe to compete and to achieve new personal bests during European Para Youth Games 27.6.–4.7.2022.

Eight out of nine sports venues are located in Pajulahti or in close neighborhood, only swimming is organized in Mäkelänrinne Swimming Center in Helsinki.  We want to offer the best possible venues to all the athletes who will be competing during EPYG 2022. Pajulahti has been home of Paralympic sports in Finland more than 10 years and during that time several competitions have been organized. We will use all our expertise in order to make these games unique and memorable. 

Every athlete knows that you don’t win alone. Organizing games is also team sport. Partners, officials, everybody who is involved in organizing the event – we will do our best during EPYG!
