Practice will take place outdoors if the weather allows it and otherwise indoors in a gymnasium, especially during the colder part of the year. A gymnasium is rented for every single session, so that rain, heat or cold do not interfere with the practice schedule.

The times of the practice are coordinated with De Nederlandse School, so that students have enough time to eat lunch before practice. Please pack a water bottle and a lunch bag.

What students should bring to each practice:

  • water bottle
  • lunch box
  • snack
  • non-marking sports shoes
  • cleats for league games and if we can practice outdoors

The field and the gymnasium are close to De Nederlandse School and may vary sometimes from session to session, depending on availability.

Practice takes place after the end of De Nederlandse School. The practice times may be revised on days with Culturele Middag depending on availability of fields or gyms.

Practice schedule on regular days:
