What other advantages are there to having a sportscard?
A sports card solely for the membership is of course not cheap. However, there are advantages which you might not yet be familiar with.
- Logically you can participate in all walk-in activities of UM SPORT.
- With the sportscard you have the right to a number of tournamentsubsidies per year. Usually this is € 7,50 for tournaments in the Netherlands and € 15,- for tournaments abroad. There are some other requirements, which the teamcaptain can tell you about.
- One sportscard allows membership to multiple students sports associations.
Not to be underestimated is that linked to the sportcard a subsidy is given by UM SPORT to cover the costs of teachers and locations. An outline taking 130 members as example: the course fees only cover one third of the total costs. Even when the fees of all sportscards of our members are only used for Let’s Dance! courses then the loss still amounts to one fifth of the total cost.
Do I need a sports card?
A sports card is mandatory for all members who follow a course at Let’s Dance! where the teachers and locations are mostly subsidized by UM SPORT. When the sports card is mandatory this will be mentioned on the page of the course. When it concerns a non-regular course, for example a summer course, or a workshop it will be mentioned with the opportunity to sign up or during promotion.
Membership, participation in our activities, competitions or social dance evenings does not require a sports card.
What is the fine for not having a valid sportscard?
In the case that a course-following member does not have a valid sports card the resulting fine UM SPORTS imposes on Let’s Dance! needs to be paid by that member. Its amount has been determined to be double the cost of a full-year sports card.
