Competitive swimming

At swimming club AZL, you can also take part in competitive swimming. During training sessions, you will work on your starting technique, different swimming strokes and turning points, muscle build and fitness. During competitions in the region, you can measure your strength against other swimmers. Will you be the fastest and go home with a medal?
If you have at least swimming diploma B, you are welcome to join competitive swimming. In the competition team, you will learn to swim the freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke even better than in swimming lessons. And we will teach you the butterfly stroke. We also pay a lot of attention to how to start and turn quickly. Soon you will notice that you will swim much neater and above all much faster. And that, of course, is super cool!
