To keep the contribution for the members low, Chassé is working behind the bar in the canteen of the Sports Centre twice per semester. The income that is made during those days is going to the association. With those earnings fun activities and extra dance lessons for all the members are organised. Besides earning income for the association, the barshifts are a lot of fun! You can get to know the other members from Chassé a bit better. Next to that you can learn all the tips and tricks of working behind the bar.

Chassé expects all members to help with the barshifts. For regular members, this is 1 shifts of 2 hours per semester. For active members this is 1 shift of two hours per year. The barshifts are being announced at the newsflash after each lesson and via the monthly newsletters. It is possible to sign up via the forms that will be send in the WhatsApp Announcements chat.


I have never done a barshift before?!

Don’t panic! At the bar, you will find a barteambook with all the information. Besides that, there are usually 2 to 3 people doing a barshift together, so you are not alone. Each barshift there are experienced people present that can help you.
Before doing your barshift, you will need to do a training about serving alcohol which will take you around 15 minutes and then there is small test to get your certificate: https://verantwoordalcoholverkopen.nl/sport/#/.

This training is in Dutch, but there is a translation document. You can find it here: https://www.sdvchasse.utwente.nl/translation-verantwoord-alcohol-verkopen-2/

Please send your certificate to bestuur@sdvchasse.utwente.nl.


I don’t want to do a barshift!

That really is a pity as barshifts are a lot of fun! Besides that, you really need no experience to work at the bar. There will always be one person with experience there as well. This way you will learn very quickly how everything works. You really do not want to a barshift or you don’t do enough of them? Then you’ll get a fine at the end of the year. The fine for not doing any barshifts is max. 20 euros and will be calculated exactly at the end of the academic year. When you did one shift but needed to do two, you’ll get 50% of the fine.
So help Chassé with doing just 4 hours of barshifts!

We hope to see you at the Sports Canteen!
