The sports club Grótta was founded on April 24, 1967 by Garðar Guðmundsson who called some boys in Seltjarnarnes for organized football training in the summer of 1966.

Grótta's purpose is to offer organized sports and social activities for its members.

Today, there are three divisions within Grótta:
- Gymnastics, handball and football.

All professional registrations take place in Sportabler. More information about the registration process here

Grótta uses the communication program Sportabler, where all training sessions for the relevant category are displayed and in addition most communication with coaches goes through it. 

If you have any questions about the club's work, it is best to contact the relevant coach or head coach via Sportabler or by email.

The sports club Grótta is based on Suðurströnd in Seltjarnarnes. The location on the map can be found here.

Grótta's office is on the 2nd floor of the sports hall and is open every weekday from 13:00 - 16:00.

  • It is very important to register practitioners as soon as possible after training begins.
  • Practitioners who are not registered with the club do not have the right to participate in tournaments / games organized by the club.
  • If a practitioner is not registered with the club, the practitioner is uninsured, both during training and in competitions.


Volunteers do various jobs within the Grótta sports movement. For example, sitting on board divisions, participating in tournaments, organizing events, and much more.
