Organisation and structure

NOC*NSF is the umbrella organisation for sports in the Netherlands. As the country’s Olympic Committee, it is develops, promotes, and projects the Olympic Movement in the Netherlands and is responsible for sending Dutch athletes to the Olympic Games, the Youth Olympic Games, and the European Youth Olympic Festival.

NOC*NSF is an association in which the General Assembly, attended by representatives of all the member sports federations in the Netherlands, is the highest decision-making body. 

The cooperation between sport at the highest level (elite sport) and broad involvement (grass roots sports) within the Dutch sports sector is a strong element within the structure of NOC*NSF. The three primary ambitions of the Dutch NOC reinforce each other:

  • creating the right conditions for our elite athletes to excel on the world stage;
  • making everyday sport accessible to everyone;
  • organising major international sports events.
