Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius, and Sint Maarten are part of the Dutch Caribbean since 2010. With the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles later in that year, the athletes from these territories were allowed to compete at the 2011 Pan American Games with the older denomination. This also happened with these athletes at the 2012 Summer Olympics, but they were part of the Independent Olympic Athletes team. Since 2013, athletes from these five territories were absorbed by the Aruban Olympic Committee.
