Introduction Training


Dear (new) student of Wageningen UR,

introduction trainingYou are invited to join the GVC Introduction Training Sessions. During these evenings, we give you the opportunity to meet the trainers and players of GVC and to join the variety of typical football exercises that GVC uses to prepare for its’ matches. The exercises range from working on your stamina and speed, to improving your technical skills and positioning games (yes, some tactics as well!), with often, at the end, a ‘partijtje’, which is the Dutch word for a nice small training match (you may want to remember the word :).

A special welcome to those students that are thinking about playing matches. We can almost guarantee that you will enjoy to 90 minutes of the real game (the matches in the weekend!), and that there are many guys and girls to become not just friends, but also comrades – that means: fighting together 90 minutes long for the victory, and afterwards, whether you win or lose, drink a beer or two.

The Introduction Training Sessions will take place from the first week of the academic year to the end of September. The schedule is as follows:

Men: Tuesday and Thursday, 20:30h-22:00h. Tuesdays at the grass pitch (field D), Thursdays at the artificial pitch.
Women: Wednesday, 19:30h-21:00h. Grass pitch (field D).

If you don’t know where to go, please ask at the reception of the sports centre. Dressing rooms available.

Please know: At GVC, the first weeks are for free. So just come around, give it at try, even subscribe and join some matches, and then you can decide whether you would like to stay or not. (Most likely you will : ) .)

So, let’s meet on the soccer pitch!
