Participate in the EDC banner competition

Children can participate individually, as a class or as a team and make a banner of a size of their choice. And the bigger the better of course!

Because the Olympic Games will be held again in 2024 and there will be diver participants who will also jump during the upcoming Eindhoven Diving Cup, the theme for the banner competition is: “Olympic Games 2024 – on to Paris”.

The banner may contain a self-devised slogan that fits within this theme. With regard to further decoration, the participants are expected to show their most creative side.


The team, class or participant with the best banner wins a diving workshop! This way the winners or the winner can really get acquainted with this beautiful sport.

This workshop is entirely provided in the Pieter van den Hoogenband Swimming Stadium and supervised by official trainers from PSV Schoonspringen.
