If this sounds like a great experience to you, please send a motivation letter and CV to bestuur@stichtingnsz.nl until 12 April 23:59. Curious about more substantive information about a function?

Dear members,
We have just received a message from the KNZB with the advice not to allow training and other activities to take place until April 6. We follow this advice, which means that there will be NO training, activities and competitions until April 6. Follow the advice of the RIVM and if you have any questions, feel free to email us!

Easter aquathlon

This year, UHTT, Hellas Triathlon, LABC and Het Zinkstuk are organizing the Easter aquathlon again. This year this will take place Monday the 12th of April in and around the Krommerijnbad in Utrecht. There is an extra honor for students this year, as the Easter aquathlon has been designated as NSK by Student Sports Netherlands. This means that the winner of the students can call themselves 'Dutch student aquathlon champion' for a year. You swim 500 meters as a distance and then you continue immediately with 5 km of running. If you don't feel like exercising, we are also looking for volunteers from Het Zinkstuk to help with the event. You can register for this spectacle via https://www.ntbinschreven.nl/. For more information: www.paaszwemloop.nl and for questions / comments, you can email to info@paaszwemloop.nl or contact Marek (0620889446).
