    Communication activities

    The Dutch National Sports Week, is annually organised, partly in conjunction with the European Week of Sports.

    The National Sports Week in the Netherlands is a national sporting event which turns the spotlight on sports for a week, showing just how healthy and more importantly, how much fun it can be to take part in sports and physical activity. This sporting week has been organized by NOC*NSF (with participation of 40 Sports Federations, with 9000 organized sports activities and 1.000.000 Dutch participants during the week) for the past 14 years with the intention of acquainting more people with a sport that suits them, and subsequently guiding them towards their local sports club or local sports initiative.

    Organizing the National Sports Week is one of the initiatives of NOC*NSF that enhances the positive contribution sports make to people and society. We contribute to the main ambition of the NOC*NSF Unit Sports Participation to increase the sports participation in the Netherlands from 65% to 75%. This means one million extra citizens to ‘#BeActive’. This challenge links closely with the objective of the European Week of Sport to raise awareness and promote participation in sports and physical activity.
