Information swimming

So you’re interested in a membership at the most awesome swimming- and waterpoloclub of the Netherlands? That’s great! Het Zinkstuk is a small, but very active society. We organise events, participate in the Dutch Students Swimming Competition (NSZK) and have weekly drinks on Wednesdays at the Krommerijn swimming pool. Besides all these fun activities we also practice swimming. These practices are suitable for swimmers of all levels: we have separate lanes for beginning, intermediate and advanced swimmers. Do you think our society suits you? Just come by for a free trial practice! 

Free trial practice

You can join us for a free trial practice three times. You can sign up for a trial practice here .

Practice times

The current practice times can be found here.

Land practice

Besides the swimming practices there's also training on land every Wednesday. This land training is at 20:00 (so before the swimming practice) and takes place in De Krommerijn.

The land practices are organised by the landtrainingscommittee


Het Zinkstuk competes in the Dutch Student Swimming Competition, named NSZK. In this competition we compete to be the best student swimteam of the Netherlands. Every year we have 4 meets and afterwards a big party!

Every year there's also a student swimming championship (NK Students). Every student may compete at this meet, even if you're not registered at a student swimteam. This meet is once a year in a different student swim city.

Check the competition schedule here.
