Courses and sports overview

The goal of this page is to give an overview of all sports, courses and training programs you can do with the NijSAC. These courses cover many different sports and diciplines. The NijSAC offers some courses in-house, but others will be handled by our umbrella association: the NSAC.

Note that a lot of NijSAC'ers are also active in sports which do not have any courses, like Via ferrata and Hiking.
