The Sports Department of the City of Luxembourg (Ville de Luxembourg - VdL) has announced its upcoming edition of “SdS Sport-Wochen” (sport weeks) to take place from 16 July to 23 August 2024.

For more than 41 years, the VdL Sports Department has been organising sports weeks every summer for young people aged eleven to seventeen. This year’s event consists of six mini sports weeks for eleven to twelve years olds and thirteen sports weeks for thirteen to seventeen years olds. The courses last four to seven days (with or without overnight stays) and will take place in Luxembourg and abroad.

The different courses offered will allow young people to discover new sporting activities, to improve their skills in a particular discipline, make new friends and to develop in a friendly atmosphere. Furthermore, when developing sports weeks, special attention is paid to health and healthy lifestyles. Thus, the sports weeks form part of the Aldermen College’s desire to involve young people from all social backgrounds in physical and sporting activities and to contribute to their development and general well-being.

Mini Sports Weeks

The mini sport weeks include sporting activities suitable for children aged eleven to twelve, such as mini multisports, mini water multisports, mini sailing (Netherlands) and mini maxi-sports.

Sports Weeks

The sporting offer for thirteen to seventeen year olds includes courses in climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, martial arts, water sports, multisports, wakeboarding, dance arts and sportsfun on wheels (e.g. mountain biking, karting, skateboarding).

In addition to the courses organised in Luxembourg, participants can avail of sailing, surfing and kitesurfing weeks in the Netherlands (Brouwersdam), as well as an outdoor thrill seekers’ course (rafting, canyoning, climbing, etc.) in Austria (Ötztal).

The various sporting activities are provided by coaches in possession of a state certificate and in collaboration with numerous sports clubs in Luxembourg. General supervision is guaranteed by certified facilitators who have followed theoretical and practical training provided by the VdL Sports Department of and recognised by Luxembourg's Ministry of Education, Children and Youth.
