Marc is well-known for his innovations. There was even a verb named after him: lammering. He uses a lot of technology in his modern style coaching, such as video glasses, analysis software, new hockey sticks, heartbeat meters and earphones.

Coaching has changed tremendously over the last years. Marc has his own clear vision on the new developments.

We have arranged a variety of social activities during the congress:

Social Program

Groninger Museum The registration and opening ceremony of the XII ENSSEE forum will take place at the Groninger museum. We have arranged that participants of the forum can visit the museum before registration. The Groningen Museum, a work of art in itself, is one of the most beautiful and special museums in the Netherlands. The Groningen Museum is located opposite the main central station and is the to its striking design by Italian architect Mendini, but also because of varying exhibitions, including works by Russian painter Repin, American photographer Andres Serrano, and Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf. The permanent collection consists of a large assembly of porcelain and works by the Groningen artists’ collective De Ploeg.

Bike or walk tour ‘Groninger Land’ During a congress around sports, physical education and physical activities, it is inevitable to do some activities ourselves. On Thursday afternoon, we will organize a bike or walk tour in het ‘Groninger Land’

Gala dinner AA-kerk The last evening of the ENSSEE forum, a gala dinner is offered to all participants. The dinner will take place in a very special environment: Der Aa-kerk in Groningen. The history of the church probably starts at the end of the 12th century, with a three-aisled vaulted cruciform basilica which at that time has the title of chapel only and is mainly used settled at the banks of the river Aa. In the 13th century permission is granted to use the building as a parish church, named Onze Lieve Vrouwe ter Aa (Church of Our Lady ter Aa), although the church is also dedicated to St. Nicolaas, protector of sailors. The current church is largely the result of a major transformation of this Romanogothic church into a Gothic one. A big restoration was started in 1975 and was completed in 1987. In that year the church-council handed the building to a seperate foundation that now maintains it and rents it for all sorts of events.


Social Program

The City of Groningen: Excursions As a lively university city, Groningen has the youngest average population in the Netherlands. It has a long and turbulent history, which becomes evident from the historic warehouses, courts and buildings. Groningen is also a city with nerve, with the most numerous examples of innovative architecture within its boundaries. In addition, it was once proclaimed the city with the best city centre in the Netherlands because of its charm. Experience all of this and explore Groningen!

Martini Church and Tower The most important Groningen monument is the Martini tower which has overlooked the city for over five hundred years. This fourth highest tower of the Netherlands can be climbed until the third gallery, during which visitors can also communicate with the tower via their mobile telephones! Afterwards, see the Martini church, the largest church in Groningen. Originating from approximately 1230, it includes frescos from the 13th century, and one of the largest Baroque organs in northwest Europe.

Ask about the church’s opening hours prior to your visit.

Prinsenhof and Prinsentuin During recent years, Radio/TV Noord was accommodated in the Prinsenhof, but they moved a short while ago. Originally used as a monastery, a suitable function for this complex is now being looked for. Behind the Prinsenhof is the Prinsenhoftuin, which includes a rose garden and herb garden, and a footpath covered with foliage (berceau). The garden, surrounded by a wall, is one of the best examples of a Renaissance garden in the Netherlands. The Prinsenhoftuin garden is opened from early April to half-October from 10 am to sunset. The tearoom is open during fine weather.

Goudkantoor (gold office) Originally a provincial tax office, this building was built in 1635. With its lavishly decorated façades, it was the last Renaissance style building to be constructed in Groningen. It was given the name of Goudkantoor in the 19th century when the “bureau of security for gold and silver” was located here, and it is now a café/restaurant.


Optional Program

GasTerra Flames Groningen The Club GasTerra Flames Groningen is a Dutch professional basketball club, playing in the Dutch Basketball League. The home arena is Martiniplaza in the city of Groningen. The club won the national championship three times: in 1982, 2004, and 2010. In 2005 and 2011 they won the NBB Cup.

The History

Nederlanden announced to stop as sponsor. After one year of playing under their name, Donar was demoted to the rayon league. Donar became champion that year and promoted to the promotion league. In 1986, Donar returned to the highest league; where they remained ever since. On February 1, 1991, the Basketball Business Club (BBC) was founded.
