SKITS is the one and only ice skating, cycling and speed skating association for students in Amsterdam. It is established in 2003, after a merger between the ice skating associations of both the VU and UvA. SKITS combines sportsmanship and social activities and our 300 members enjoy cycling, speed skating and inline skating at all levels, ranging from novice to national level. Everyone is welcome!
During winter, SKITS meets at the ice rink and in summer we go cycling and inline skating in the beautiful surroundings of Amsterdam. Year round SKITS organises many activities such as tournaments, ice-skating and cycling weekends, a 10 day summer and winter trip, a hitch-hiking weekend, drinks and parties. Moreover, each week a 'Social Cycle' or ‘Social Skate’ takes place where we meet each other to eat, train and have a drink together.
Membership of SKITS includes the possibility to participate in all activities organised by SKITS and to take part in all trainings and courses of the university sport centres (USC and sport centre VU) without additional costs. Beside these sports and social activities it is possible to develop yourself by joining one of our committees or become active as trainer/coach/mentor for one of our competition teams.
Feeling excited about SKITS and would you like to meet SKITS? Join, non-committal, one of our training moments, our introduction period or catch up at the monthly drinks somewhere in Amsterdam! For more information, mail to secretaris@SKITS.nl
