    From 1-8-2020, the starting communities The Hague Swimming and Rotterdam Swimming will continue under one name, Blue Marlins. This international name conceived by our members during brainstorming sessions and the logo inspired by major American sports clubs is a fantastic representation of what we want to convey. An ambitious collaboration between Racing Club, Swimming Rotterdam South and Z&PC Rotterdam, with a KNZB training center in The Hague and a 50 meter pool in Rotterdam and The Hague. Active for a number of years at the top of the Netherlands and with this renewed and united image we are on the way to even more success.

    Blue Marlins offers space for every type of competitive swimmer. From the super talents who participate in the (inter) national top to the recreational swimmers, from masters from 20 to 80 years old to the very youngest, who have just obtained their B-diploma and are entering our own Blue Marlins Swim Academy. And everything under the guidance of an enthusiastic and professional trainer team.

  • Swimacademy

    Transferring from swimming lessons to competitive swimming in a swim club can be a huge step for children and their families. That is why the Hague Swimming has the Swim Academy. Here, children learn the primary aspects of the different swim strokes, including the starts and turns. The emphasis lies in mastering technique and having fun, not on competing or winning.

  • Long-Term Athlete Devolepment

    The Hague Swimming applies the Canadian-developed LTAD plan to all its swim trainings, because it encompasses all the aspects of a sporter´s long-term development, including coaching, training, competitive skills and performance.

    Minioren swimmers up to 11 years are primarily trained in technical aspects. When they reach the age of 12, they can enter the ‘road to the top’ based on a healthy balance between their commitment to the sport and their duties at school and at home. Junioren swimmers aged 12 to 14/16, specifically train their aerobic system, but also start to build up their anaerobe abilities. Coaches use individual goal cards to monitor the growth of every swimmer (ratio 1:8).

    At the ages of 17-18 (for men) and 15-16 (for women), The Hague Swimming swimmers start to specialize in a specific stroke and distance. The aerobe and anaerobe systems are improved and the technical abilities perfected. At this stage, the swimmer receives even more personal coaching than before (ratio 1:6).

    Senior swimmers (men 18+ and women 16+) work with an individual programme adjusted entirely to the swimmer’s needs.

    Sport monitoring and medical support is integrated in all levels of swim training at The Hague Swimming

    The training at The Hague Swimming is in Dutch and English. For more information, please contact: info@thehagueswimming.nl
