JOIN THE SWIMGYM COMPETITION TEAM

As a SwimGym member you can now register for a swimming competition licence and participate in official swimming competitions approved by the Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB) and the National Triathlon Federation (NTB). You have the chance to represent ‘Team SwimGym’ in both indoor (Master Swimming) and outdoor (Open Water) competition.

COMPETITION OVERVIEW

HOW DOES IT WORK

Master Swimming is growing rapidly in the Netherlands and worldwide. Competition is based on age groups, starting from 20+ up to 100+ years old in both men’s and women’s competition. Each age group has a range of 5 years (for example 40+, 45+, 50+, etc). However, you’re racing is based on your entry time.

For Open Water competition there are different age groups as well, depending on the specific competition. 

Questions? Please visit us at the SwimGym reception.

WHO CAN JOIN

To register for a competition licence you need to have a SwimGym membership. Depending on your swimming skills you can enter the events applicable for you. Whether you can manage a 50 meter freestyle or capable of swimming a 200 meter butterfly, every competition offers a wide range of events. 

For Open Water competition there are only few technical rules so it is easy to enter. For Master Swimming you need to know how to dive from a starting block and the basic technical guidelines for competition swimming. We will schedule technical workshop regularly to provide you with the information you need to participate.
