Student sports associations

FOSST (voorheen pendragon)

In the Netherlands, sports competitions are generally organized by sports associations and federations. This is also the case at the Sports Center. Both training and competition matches in over twenty sports are run by the relevant sports associations. A full list of the associations can be found elsewhere on this website.

The Sports Center exists primarily for students, as do its affiliated sports associations. They are also run entirely by students. If you are interested in joining an association, or wish to play in a match, you should contact the association directly. Don't be shy: they're waiting to hear from you!

FOSST Sports Council

The FOSST Sports Council represents the interests of all sport membership holders, regardless of whether they are also a member of a student sports association. FOSST promotes sport among students and is also the coordinating body for all student sports associations. It advises the Sports Center, and is the main channel of communication between the center's General Manager and the committees of the various associations. There is close and ongoing consultation between FOSST and the Sports Center.

Last but not least, the FOSST Sports Council organizes various events, both large and small such as a Carnivall Volleyball tournament and OSC Futsall.
