Who is AH&BC?
AH&BC or ‘Amsterdam’ for short is one of the largest and most successful hockey clubs in the Netherlands. The club has over 2300 members and in its 124 years of existence has acquired the most national titles of any club in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is also the oldest hockey club in the Netherlands. Since its foundation in 1892, the club has won 21 league titles with its men’s team and 19 national championships with its Ladies.
Many top players come from Amsterdam’s own youth academy. Since 1989, the club has been working with a modern and comprehensive youth plan, in which, in addition to the technical development of youth players, fun in games and teamwork also play an important role.
