Rosters (near) full

We are in the joyful position that we can start the season and academic year with a filled-up roster for the men, and an almost filled-up roster for the ladies’ teams.

It also regrettably means we cannot welcome any new male members for now, and only a few ladies.

If you’ve missed the boat, and do not want to miss it again, fill in the form below. If you leave your personal info there, we will get in contact with you as soon as spots are opening up or open practices resume!

Introduction Day Programme

Programme Introduction day Sunday 12th September

A day for the club to introduce itself to its new members, and for the new members to do the same the other way around. That means: lots of basketball, in the form of practice, pick-up games, and fun skill contests. The practices are divided per sex, the skills challenges are not.

Men practice: 13:00-14:00

Mixed games 14:00-14:30 –> both men & women!

Shootout: 14.30 – 15.00

Women practice : 15:00-16:00

Drinks and food: 16.00 – …

Meanwhile on Sunday, we also organize a course on the rules of the game, with the goal to obtain a ‘rules of the game certificate’ (spelregelbewijs). Women will take the course while the men practice, and vice versa.

After the basketball fun is done, at 16.00, we will get drinks at de Binnentuin. First drink is on us! After the first drink, our own Jerry will serve us dinner. If you want dinner, you need to fill in this Google form you can find in the earlier sent email. If you have not received it, send an email to

EL CID is here! Here’s what’s important for LUSV

EL CID is on our doorstep, which means a lot is happening at LUSV. Here’s some essential information for the coming weeks, starting off with the most important one: the open training schedule.

Open training from the EL CID onwards is based on a loosely defined ‘beginner’ and ‘advanced’ division for males on the one hand, and females on the other hand. The schedule from August 23rd onward. Register for open training via this link.

Becoming a member is very simple. If you’ve decided after some good thought, some good training, or both, you want to join our ranks, all you need to do is fill out the online form that can be found here. The board will make your registration final. If you chose to play competitive basketball, what team you will be placed in will be decided upon and communicated after September 9th. If you become a training member, you’ll be set immediately.

Introduction day will be held on September 12th. Not all depends on this day, to the contrary. If you have been at training before this date, and have become a member, we will know your skill level and make sure you will be placed in the right team. This day is important to get a feel for the teams, and for coaches to begin forming plans for the coming season.

Men play from 12.30 – 15.00
Ladies play from 15.00 – 16.30

The training schedule for the period after the EL CID, from August 23rd onward, for members, is updated. This schedule can change still, after September 9th.
