How to Become a Member

Being a member of SCA is as easy as completing a registration form. You can do this one of two ways:

  1. You will receive this form from your coaches once you have completed the introduction course or your trial lessons.
  2. You can download the registration form here. Please fill in the form and hand it in to one of the coaches.

Once your application has been processed, you will be a member of the largest and most engaged fencing club in the Netherlands. Welcome!

KNAS

All SCA members automatically become members of the Royal Dutch Fencing Association (KNAS), for which they pay an annual contribution. This contribution is €30,80 for members up to 20 years old and €61,60 for members of 21 years old and older. The contribution is automatically collected once per year.

KNAS membership is compulsory for all fencers in the Netherlands as it provides liability insurance for fencers and fencing clubs. Moreover, KNAS uses this contribution for supporting the national fencing sport in regard to fencing tournaments, professional sport, fencing clubs, etc.

Cancelling Your Membership

If you wish to cancel your SCA membership, you must send an email stating so to leden@schermcentrumamsterdam.nl. Please observe the notice period of one calendar month.

You can only cancel your membership by using the email address above – merely notifying your coaches or sending your email to a different address is not sufficient to cancel your membership. The membership administration will confirm the cancellation of your membership by email provided all outstanding fees have been paid in full.

Transferring to Another Club

If you plan to continue fencing at a different fencing club, we can transfer your current KNAS-membership to your new club. Please inform us of this in your cancellation request if so and we will arrange for this to happen.

Take note: without a written notice of termination, you are obliged to pay a contribution, even if you do not attend any fencing classes.
