Rugby is a true student's sport. In the Netherlands, there is a special competition for first year rugby players, the ‘Jonghe Honden’ competition.
Jonghe Honden from all different student rugby associations in the Netherlands play matches against each other. After the showdown, there will be a third half where everybody will be dressed in traditional Scottish kilts and we’ll once again measure who’s best.
Every year, approximately 50 guys start the six-week clinic at Ascrum, where the basics of rugby will be taught. Usually about 30 guys remain and start their membership of Ascrum as a Jonghe Hond.
The Jonghe Honden training is every Thursday for the entire year and focuses on bonding and teamwork on the rugby pitch. Besides matches against other student teams, everybody will be encouraged to join one of our five other teams in regular matches on Sundays.
Would you like to be part of this group? Sign up now, so we’ll be able to keep in touch. The clinic will start the second week of September.
In exchange for just €20, you will get six weeks of training with an exciting evening program. At the end of the clinic, we will arrange a match versus another student ruby association.
