About Zwem Goud
Curious about swimming for LGBTIQ+ in Groningen? Join the gay and lesbian swimming team, or come visit us for a quick scan. At Zwem Goud, we think it's important for everyone to be able to enjoy sports without having to be worried about their acceptance as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. There is a big difference in being accepted or not having to be worried about being and showing who you are. At Zwem Goud we provide that safe environment. Hey, we even welcome heterosexuals.
We are serious about swimming, and offer different levels of training. Each training consists of a program with a different focus like interval training, endurance or technique.
Twice a week, we train under supervision of a professional trainer in the Helperzwembad, Moddermanlaan 40 in Groningen. Wednesdays 19.00 - 20.00 in the 'old' pool (the one in front of you upon entering the building) and Fridays 20.00 - 21.00 in the 'new' pool (the one to the left).
If you are interested in joining us, you must be able to perform freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke. Absolutely fabulous if you can also do the butterfly or want to learn this stroke. You don't have to be a fantastic swimmer but you have to be capable to swim for about an hour during a training session and aim to improve your swimming technique, condition and speed. And enjoy yourself doing so.
Interested? Come and check us out! The first 2 training sessions are for free!
