Brussels Kangaroos welcomes guys and gals, from beginners to advanced players, from the age of 3.5. Take a look at the schedule for the different team’s practice sessions and games (by age and sex) on the SCHEDULE page.
Here’s how to join the club:
You are entitled to come to two free practice sessions before committing, during which you will still be covered by our insurance policy. Simply don your sports gear, come along to the field where the practice session takes place (see LOCATION) and introduce yourself (ideally after having contacted us). All equipment will be provided by the club to begin with (except a protective cup for boys/men). After these two trial sessions, you have to register with the club to be insured and to continue attending practices and games.
