DSSV Effe Lekker Schaatsen

ELS stands for "Effe Lekker Schaatsen" and is the student skating association of the Technical University in Delft. ELS is a young association. In 1999 Brechje Vermaat took the initiative to found ELS. Together with a number of other students she has ensured that ELS has managed to grow into a very active club with almost 200 members. These are all active in one or more skating-related sports. There is room for everyone at ELS! Whether you are a beginner or skated on Friesche doorlopers on the the Dutch canals and lakes since the age of five. Our own trainers adapt the lessons to your level. From October to April we skate at De Uithof in The Hague. On Wednesdays and Fridays we train here in four groups, each with its own level, such that everyone can participate. On Mondays there is a training at a special KNSB hour, for anyone who wants to skate extra. During the season there are many competitions where you can compete with the rest of the Dutch students. For example, there are IUTs (Inter University Tournament), NSK’s (Dutch Student Championships) and occasionally marathons in The Hague.
