Skeuvel is the student skating association of Enschede with more than 210 members. Founded in 1966, we are the oldest student skating association of studying and skating the Netherlands. At the Skeuvel we have, in addition to a skating training in winter, also summer training, strength training and above all, a lot of fun! Every month we have drinks, a Social Skate, and various activities such as bowling, trampoline jumping, or a pub quiz.
In the winter we skate twice a week. The training is on Monday from 6:30 PM to 7:40 PM and on Thursday from 5:00 PM to 6:10 PM. The level within the association is very diverse, from real beginners to advanced. Training groups consist out of roughly 10 people with the same amount of expertise so that no one stays behind.
In de zomermaanden is de ijsbaan dicht maar hoef je niet stil te zitten. Er zijn dan wekelijks skeeler-, fiets- en schaatsconditietrainingen waar je aan mee kan doen. Op deze manier kan je ook in de zomer je conditie op pijl houden en kan je makkelijk kennis maken met andere sporten en trainingsvormen. Ook worden er in de zomer drie wielrentijdritten georganiseerd waaraan je kunt deelnemen en doen wij elk jaar fanatiek mee aan de Batavierenrace!
Skating and training do not only have to be serious, but fun is also of paramount importance at Skeuvel. In addition to drinks on the first Tuesday of the month in Café Friends, activities and parties are regularly organized for and by members. Even after the training, there is always time to have a nice hot cup of chocolate. In the context of socializing, four trips are organized as well.
In the spring, a long weekend of cycling in the Belgian Ardennes is organized, in the summer a group of Skeuvels swaps the flat Netherlands to conquer mountains by bike for a week and just before the ice rink opens, a weekend is dedicated to the introduction (GLIJ-weekend) where the new members can get to know the association. Furthermore, a Skeuvel delegation departs every year around Christmas to Collalbo or Inzell to enjoy beautiful smooth ice in the Alpes.
