Swimming

In the Netherlands we often think that everyone can swim (well), because we had school swimming at school ourselves. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The growing number of drownings in recent years, clearly shows the opposite. Less than half of the school children cannot swim well enough in open or deep waters.

The swimming program of VU Sports Centre takes places on Mondays between 8 and 10 PM at the Zuiderbad of the Municipality of Amsterdam (so not at one of our own locations). Beginner swimming lessons are from 8 to 9 PM. Even if you can’t swim yet, you can participate in this class, no problem! At the beginning of the class, you’ll receive an explication on how to swim. Afterwards, from 9 to 10 PM, there is swimming training for beginners, as well as endurance swimming.

In the Zuiderbad you’ll find both swimming training sessions for beginning swimmers, as well as training sessions for more experienced swimmers to work on their physical condition and endurance.

Swimming at VU Sports Centre

Become one with the water: enjoy swimming by yourself or in the company of fellow swimmers.


SWIMMING AT VU SPORTS CENTRE

To improve swimming skills, VU Sports Centre offers a swimming program. Unfortunately, we don’t have our own pool. That is why we rent a swimming lane in the Zuiderbad. You’ll find this pool at the Hobbemakade, close to the Rijksmuseum. This pool has been a household name for many swimmers, for almost 100 years. There is an indoor pool only. More information on the Zuiderbad can be found here (Dutch).

SWIMMING PLANS

To participate in the swimming class, you’ll need to buy a separate swimming plan: a semester plan (5 months) or a three-month plan. You can either buy these plans online, or at the reception desk at one of our two locations.
