Goederaad Sport, formerly known as Sportinstituut Goederaad, is a sports centre that has been well known in Voorschoten for more than sixty years. Its owner, Percy Rüben, offers you the following classes:

  • Conditietraining: a mixture of exercises on music to improve your endurance, flexibility, muscle power and body posture.
  • Aerobics: more intensive than ‘Conditietraining’ and with more emphasis on rhythmic movement.
  • Judo: Japanese martial arts class by Sensei Percy (4th Dan) in which both youth and adults learn to make throws, holds and other techniques. Furthermore, attention is paid to treating each other in a respectful manner.
  • Kickboksen: kickboxing classes for youth and adults. 
  • Taijiquan: sport based on ancient Chinese martial arts. Taijiquan is good for body and mind. It can have a positive effect on a variety of problems like rheumatic complaints, blood pressure, heart problems and stress.
  • Taekwon-Do: Korean martial arts class by Master Marco (7th Dan) comparable to Japanese Karate.
  • Seniorengym: exercises for senior citizens or others who prefer to exercise on a less intensive level. Seniorengym is a 45-minutes work-out in which all muscles and joints will be trained and your body condition improved.
  • Hatha yoga and 60FIT-yoga: Hatha yoga is ‘regular’/mainstream yoga, 60FIT-yoga is yoga for senior citizens, sometimes using a chair. Yoga improves your strength, flexibility, posture and mental balance.

If you click on the tab “Groepslessen” you will find the time-tables for the various classes (see: Lesrooster) as well as information on e.g. subscription fees, enrolment and cancellation. In the next paragraphs, you can read a short summary.

Subscription fees. There are two sorts of subscriptions: monthly subscriptions and ‘stamp’ cards (rittenkaarten). Payment of the monthly subscription is through automatic collection from your bank account. The stamp cards can be purchased online on this website. Stamp cards have a limited number of credits and a limited validity. For example: a 12-rittenkaart/12-goes stamp card has twelve credits and is valid for fourteen weeks. There is no enrolment fee and a free probation lesson is always possible. Payment can be done in cash or by bank/Ideal. Our bankaccount is: NL59 INGB 000 598 43 43 in the name of Goederaad Sport.

Enrolment. Enrolment is possible through the button “Inschrijven”. The subscription term is a minimum of three months. 

Cancellation. Cancellation is only possible in writing, namely by email or letter.

Holidays. There are no classes during the Christmas Holidays. In July and August there is an adapted time-table: the classes are limited to Tuesday mornings and evenings during six of a total of eight holiday-weeks.

Judo

Kennismakingscursus. We offer a try-out course in Judo for kids, consisting of eight consecutive lessons for € 30,-. The 8-goes stamp card (‘8-rittenkaart’) can be bought online and is valid for ten weeks.

Puntencompetitie. Each season there is a series of five judomatches which take place in our own dojo (=judo hall).

Katatraining. On Saturday mornings from 9.30-10.30 am, we offer a special training for advanced judokas in Judokata. These are series of techniques that you need to know for the black belt exams.

Wedstrijdtraining. On Fridays from 5-6 pm there is a special competition training.

Vakantierooster. The Holiday schedule for the youth classes is nearly the same as the Holiday schedule of the Primary Schools.

Weeshuis Don Bosco

Percy Rüben collects money for Orphanage Don Bosco in Surabaya in Indonesia since 1990. The reason he has chosen to support this charity is because his father stayed in this orphanage when he was young. This charity project has merged with the Pertolongan Foundation in 2014.
