A year of
fun events

During the year, the teams will be able to participate in diverse sporting, cultural and surprising disciplines where they can earn points. Do you want to participate in a discipline? Become a member of your district team and let your team know that you want to participate in the Facebook group. The district captain decides (in concert) who will represent the district team.

We’ll start in July 2021 with the opening discipline. After that, a new discipline will be held every 1-2 months. In July 2022, the big culmination will take place with nine disciplines in one week!

Disciplines 2021 - 2022

Until July 2022, we’ll be organizing about 1 discipline per month. Because of Covid-19, we’ll be planning max 3 months in advance. During the year, more fun disciplines will pop up on this page.

Keep an eye on our Social Media channels to be informed on upcoming disciplines.
