Swimming offer

Did your child really enjoy the swimming lessons and would like to learn more, then take a look at the Kidsclub. 


The regular swimming lessons are given according to the Super Spetters method.



Have you achieved your C-diploma, but would you like to continue swimming? You     can! Various disciplines from swimming are practiced at the Kidsclub. For example, the various sports are practiced (competitive swimming, water polo, synchronized swimming and diving), in addition rescue swimming    and survival swimming are also offered. This way you can also enjoy swimming after the swimming lessons.


SuperSpetters is the teaching method developed by the KNZB. Afterwards, children receive a diploma which is equivalent to the C diploma in terms of level. After the period in which children get used to the water, first the crawl strokes are taught and then the single backstroke and the breaststroke.
The front crawl and back crawl are used as a starting point because these strokes are more natural movements. Children are divided into groups of a maximum of eight. All SuperSpetters instructors have a VOG.
An important feature of SuperSpetters is the use of aids such as swimming caps, goggles and flippers instead of the flotation devices used in traditional swimming lessons.
Children receive a personal swimming book at the start of the swimming course. This swimming book contains fun swimming lesson stories for the children, reward stickers can be pasted and useful information for the parents.
SuperSpetters swimming lessons are concluded with the KNZB swimming diploma. This swimming certificate means that your child is safe to swim. In the Netherlands, your child is safe to swim if it meets the requirements of the swimming certificate C.
Finally, the communication structure is also one of the strong points. Before the start of the SuperSpetters, parents are well informed about the swimming lesson process. During the process, parents are kept informed by means of progress interviews. During the lessons, parents can see the progress of the child themselves from the stands. Every 9th lesson is a viewing lesson and you can sit at the edge of the bath. You can then discuss your child's progress with the teachers. The dates of the viewing lessons can be found in the calendar.


Star plan

The SterrenPlan is intended for children who have completed the SuperSpetters trajectory. A sport-specific module has been developed for each sport, in which all basic skills are covered. General swimming skills are reflected in the transcending sports modules. The KNZB SterrenPlan can easily be adapted to your own specific association situation, both in terms of content and organization. The plan is a guide and does not pretend to be perfect.


There are 12 different modules available, each consisting of 8 lessons:

Sport branch specific modules:

  1. I play water polo

  2. I can swim synchronously

  3. I can dive

  4. I swim competitions

  5. I survival in the water


Sports transcending modules:

  1. I am nimble in the water

  2. I can do tricks in the water

  3. I have strong muscles

  4. I exercise with others

  5. I use different swimming gear

  6. I swim several strokes

  7. I can keep up my sport for a long time


By having modules of 8 lessons, multiple modules can be covered in a season. The star plan is intended for a maximum of 2 years. Participants can receive 2 different posters that are intended for a total of 8 modules (4 per poster). One certificate is available per module. This certificate describes the basic skills that the children learn during the module. On the basis of the certificate, the association can make clear which parts the children have treated and successfully completed during the module. The stars per skill on the certificate can be colored when the child has mastered a skill sufficiently.


The Swimming ABC

De  National Swimming Safety Federation (NRZ) together with the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB) have as  goal to raise the swimming safety of people in the Netherlands to the highest level possible.


Everyone should enjoy going to the swimming pool and be able to move freely and safely in and around the water. But, when is your child safe to swim?

What can you do with which swimming diploma?

The NRZ has linked levels of swimming proficiency to National Swimming Diplomas. Your child only meets the National Swimming Safety Standard with swimming diploma C. The National Swimming Diplomas A and B are intermediate steps. These levels are in line with the Dutch infrastructure of bathing water where adults and children swim:

Swimming diploma A

The Learning Phase.   After obtaining your A diploma, you have  the skills for a swimming pools without attractions.

What is swimming safety according to the NRZ?

Being safe for swimming means that you can 'survive in and around the water and move and recreate in a safe way and have fun in Dutch water culture'. Swimming safety is determined by your child's skills in the water, what he or she is doing and the conditions. A child is safe to swim if:

Does your son/daughter like to swim, but you are not sure what the possibilities are after obtaining the diplomas. Then the kids club offers a solution. At the kids club, the children become acquainted with various parts of swimming such as competitive swimming, water polo and   diving, but also rescue swimming, survival swimming and swimming to music will be discussed ktoand.


The Kids Club originated from an initiative of PSV Dutch Dolphin Swimming Club in collaboration with InnoSportlab de Tongelreep and the Municipality of Eindhoven. Later there are also several springs hereassociations and volunteers joined in to provide the lessons with specialism. The idea is to introduce the participants to the fun activities that water and moving in the water has to offer. We will introduce you to different types of sports and you will learn some techniques so that you retain the swimming technique that you have built up in swimming lessons, and do not sink into it. This will keep you swimming safe! The idea is to cover two sports or activities per lesson. After a few weeks we will adjust this offer with two new sports / activities in order to continue to offer as many types of activities as possible. You are welcome to participate as long as you want, but if you come across a sport in the meantime that you would like to develop further, you can get in touch with the relevant association through us to take trial lessons there. Together we build a swimming-safe environment where fun comes first!

competitive swimming

In competitive swimming, the goes to swim as fast as possible. It is important to swim with a good technique, you also have to be able to start and turn quickly. Attention is therefore paid to the technique of the various strokes, including the butterfly stroke, and the children learn how to start and turn as quickly as possible.


Water polo

In water polo the emphasis is on playing together. It is important to be able to swim and throw well, but without teamwork it will be difficult to score.



Diving is about jumping into the water as beautifully as possible and without too much splashing. During the lessons, the children learn the basic skills of diving and learn to jump responsibly from the 1 and 3 meter plank.

Rescue swimming

When swimming rescue you learn how to help others in the water in a responsible way. The emergence of a doll and the transport of a drowning person are part of this. In addition, you also learn to free yourself in case someone hangs around your neck.


Survival swimming

In swimming lessons, children learn the basic skills to save themselves, such as floating on an aid or climbing over a mat. In survival swimming they go one step further. For example, the children learn to breathe under a boat and float on their own pants. This way your child can save himself even better in the water.


Synchronized Swimming

In synchronized swimming you learn to do tricks in the water, how to move by making only small movements with your arms and that everything has to be synchronized with your friends.
