Why should I join?

  • Climbing is an amazing sport!
  • We teach members the techniques to climb safely. This counts for inside as well as outside. 
  • We offer weekly trainings for free or with a discount. 
  • We organize more than 10 climbing weekends a year.
  • Besides climbing we love to do other fun activities like monthly drinks!
  • In addition to sport climbing and bouldering, we also practice mountaineering.

Are you interested, but not entirely sure about joining? Join a training on Wednesdays at the SSC to try it out! More info about that can be found here. You can also contact the board by sending an email to bestuur@esac.nl


Here is what the intropackage contains:

  • Intro group with two intro parents. Together with your parents, you will eat together and with your group you will visit the activities below.
  • Indoor Toprope course. With this you can climb and belay in all climbing halls in The Netherlands. Do you already have your toprope certificate? Then you no longer have to follow the course and, thus, do not pay for it.
  • 1 introduction weekend where you will go climbing abroad.
  • Climb once in another climbing hall in Eindhoven.
  • Intro shirt.

  • The price for the introduction package is about 109 euros.
  • As mentioned earlier, you also need a sports card from the SSC to be able to become a member. Check the SSC website for the current price.
  • You can follow the course on sports shoes, but climbing shoes are the standard and highly recommended. These cost a minimum of €50. Next to this you also need a climbing harness, safebiner and belaying device. During the course these can be rented, but afterwards you will need to buy your own, which costs around €90. To keep this as affordable as possible, we offer a material deal for this where you can buy everything excluding shoes in one go with a nice discount.

How do I know if I can become a member?

There are of a few requirements for becoming a member:

  • You have to be a student.
  • To become a member of the ESAC, you must have a sports card from the Student Sports Center Eindhoven. 
  • The contribution is € 30 per academic year. If you join after the spring intro the price is € 15.

Becoming a member, how do I do that?

You can register for ESAC throughout the year using the form on the sign up page here. However, in order to offer new members the best possible start, an intro period is organized twice a year. We offer a summer intro, immediately following the start of the new academic year, and a spring intro, around April.
