T.S.A.V. Parcival is the Student Athletics Association in Tilburg. At this moment we only provide (middle) long distance running practices though. T.S.A.V.

All the student athletics associations have joined forces in the Dutch Student Athletics Federation ZEUS.
Our main goal is to stimulate the practise of student athletics. Our members can practise athletics in a serious way, but can also enjoy the studentcharacter of our association: having fun in a unstrained way by joining our activities. T.S.A.V. Parcival counts, besides their former members, around 35 active members.
T.S.A.V. Parcival is also supervised by the Sports Center of Tilburg University. T.S.A.V. Parcival is one of the many student-sport-associations that are supervised by FOSST. FOSST has the their primary goal to represent the interests of all students that do a sport at the Sports Center. Besides that, they are supervising all the student-sport-associations and individual students that do a sport at the Sports Center. Around 6500 students in Tilburg have a license at the Sports Center and therefore use the accommodations and the extensive offer of sports and lessons.
