National Training Centra Centra voor Topsport en Onderwijs
In 2009, the national training centres (CTOs - Centra voor Topsort en Onderwijs) and the national elite sport centres (NTCs – National Topsport Centra) have been created with training facilities, housing, education, (para)medical and other specialist knowledge close together. Right now there are five CTOs, in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Heerenveen, Papendal en in de Den Haag-Rotterdam-Dordrecht metropole area. A total of approx. 1,000 elite athletes from about 25 sports federations use the CTOs’ facilities.
