We have 5 men teams and 1 lady team. The men play on 4 different levels where Bond 3e klasse is our highest. The ladies team plays 3e klasse (the lowest league) but they have the ambition to promote!

If you come from a different team in the Netherlands there might be some rules that restrict you to switch half season. There are some exceptions but we discuss them individually. If you haven’t played for some time or you come from a different country it’s no problem and you can start right away!

We had some players trying a training on Wednesday, loved it and already played a match with us the same Saturday!

This is not a problem! If you know that you can only join for half a year or 1 semester we can still subscribe you to a team and you can train and play the matches with them for the time you are in Holland. Do take notice that the water polo season is from September – April.

We charge half a year fees so also if your situation is not clear and you’re not sure if you can stay a full season in Holland we can arrange a contribution that fits your needs.

DJK-ZAR is a small club and is based on volunteers. So we ask of all our members to contribute and help out in small or big ways.

Small things are being part of the Jury, keeping track of the score and time. Or coach a single match when you have time

Bigger things can be to help out the club with taking pictures, updating the website, promotion, sponsors etc. Or you can become part of the board!

Yep, that’s gonna happen. BUT. We can actually speak English and there are several other internationals in our team so you won’t be lost.

“The Royal Dutch Swimming Federation is the official governing body for swimming, in the Netherlands. The federation overlooks several other sports including competition swimming, open water swimming, water polo, diving, and synchronized swimming.”

As an active player, you will be asked for a yearly contribution fee. From this fee, they give you a basic insurance for anything that happens in the pool. Also, they will take care of referees, planning matches and general administration.

We are not sure either, but we hope you will! Anyways, three times a charm. We will only ask you to make up your mind after the 3rd training.  

Perfect! We cannot wait to meet you!!! Please let us know before you come so we can give you a proper introduction to the pool and the players! On Wednesday we always check which level fits best with you.

Wessel, or any other team member will tell you all you may still want to know and then you are ready to join us in the water!

Are you a girl and don’t want your first training to be with just men? We totally understand. The ladies train on Tuesday from 20:00 – 21:00 and Maud or any of the other girls there can guide you around. Or just ask their trainer Mario 😉
