After nine years of absence, Jong-Holland will be entering the DCE European Championships in Kerkrade again. The corps from Zwijndrecht - The Netherlands has signed up for the 2015 edition. “We feel ready to make a comeback now”, corps director Stephan van Nes stated.

In recent years, the DCN Championships were the end of the competition season for Jong-Holland, but still it always felt a bit as if the members were unable to complete the season. “The members always enjoyed visiting the DCE Championships in Kerkrade and we were also increasingly asked why Jong-Holland did not participate”, said Van Nes. “We feel at home in the DCN and DCE competitions. It's always fun to measure your own performance against other organisations that play the same game.”

Jong-Holland has long been successful in the competition of Drum Corps Netherlands and the corps is doing well. “We have a healthy and strong junior corps. With projects like Music Kids and Dance Kids we are still attracting many children from our community to our association and we are very proud of this.”

The DCE Championships on Saturday the 26th of September in Kerkrade promise to be a huge spectacle again, with a total of 32 performances from Europe's best corps. Tickets can be ordered online at www.drumcorpseurope.org/tickets.
