In 2010, Claudia participated in an international tournament in Vienna and she won the Under 14 draw.  In 2012 and 2013 she finished second in the regional championships of the district Utrecht.

In addition, Claudia played several years in ''Youth Plan Woerden” in which the best juniors of every club in the district of Utrecht come together to practice and play tournaments together. She also took part in a training camp in Spain in 2013.
