The ACLO offers courses in all kind of sports, as an introduction to a sport. The courses are given at beginners level and are free, unless indicated differently. You do have to pay a deposit of €10,-. When you participated 80% of the courses, you are entitled to reimbursement of the deposit. For courses, you have to sign up via MyACLO.
Every course period, different courses are being offered. For every course period there are certain deadlines that you have to take in account if you want to participate in a course. These deadlines are not negotiable.
For the current course schedule, check our schedules.
Procedure course enrollment
- Online registration
You can sign up online for courses in MyACLO under ‘Enrollments’. Enrollments open three weeks before the start of the new course period, and last two weeks. It is possible to sign up for more than one course.
- Admission by lottery
If the number of applications exceeds the number of places available in the course, a lottery will take place. All applicants will receive an e-mail with the results of the draw. It is possible to enroll with a sports buddy, in this case a weighted lottery will take place.
- Payment of deposit
If you pass the lottery you have until the first Wednesday after the lottery to pay a €10 deposit at the Sports Centre information desk, which is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. You will only be placed after you have paid the deposit.
- Post enrollment
If there are any places left in a course once the deposit period has expired, you can post-enroll for this course via MyACLO. Post-enrollment is possible until 4.00 pm the day before the first day of the course. After you enrolled, you have got one hour to pay your deposit (online or at the service desk of the Sportcentrum); if you do not pay the deposit in time, your registration will lapse. The post-enrolment is on a first come, first served basis.
- Return of the deposit
When you participated 80% of the courses, you are entitled to reimbursement of the deposit. This will be placed on your balance at MyACLO. You can use this balance to pay for new courses online or collect your deposit at the information desk of the ACLO. If you would like to collect your deposit, please select it online under ‘Lottery’ before going to the information desk of the Sportcentrum (collecting your deposit is not possible at ACLO Station!).
