The studs has always been a competative team and has played a leading role in forming the dutch student student competition (see History 1982-1987, in dutch).
The dutch student competition, originally founded as the National Student Hockey League (NSHL), consists of student team from all over the Netherlands. Teams play a double competition: one homegame and one awaygame against each other team. Although this is not always the case, all players should be a student at a dutch university or applied university.
In the 2010/2011 season, we had a sufficient amount of players to start up a second team in the competition. Since we did not want to compete with ourselves, it was decided to let our second team compete in the Adult Recreational Hockey League (ARHL). As the level in this competition is considered to be lower than the student competition, this offered us the possibility to let new players participate in a compatitive manner, even before playing in the student league.
Once every year, the Dutch student championship (Dutch: Nationaal studentenkampioenschap or NSK) is played. This is a two day event, organized by a different team each year, where all studentteams compete for the most prestigous award.
