JAWS Student Waterpolo Amsterdam is looking for shrewd players!

For already more than 15 years, JAWS Amsterdam is an understanding among waterpolo-playing students in the Netherlands. Because what’s more fun than spending your student time with people who do such a cool sport like you? Right!

Whether you only have a swimming certificate or already are experienced in a higher league does not matter; we offer accessible water polo for all levels. Because JAWS is represented in two leagues, KZNB for the sports enthusiasts and NCS for beginners, there is something for every taste. It’s also a fact that you will be received with open fins in one of our four teams (1x ladies, 3x gents).

Are you convinced yet? No? Then maybe this is the most important: JAWS is a club not only passionate in the swimming pool, but also beyond. Activities such as the hitchhiking competition, the New Year’s gala, the sailing weekend, the Batavierenrace, shark movie nights, the Amsterdam pub crawl, several summer tournaments and of course the international JAWS tournament are standard each season- you can make it as crazy as you want. And the best part is: after you register, you get at least a lot of new friends at once!

So do you want to start or keep playing waterpolo and also make the most out of your student time in Amsterdam? Now’s your chance! For more information, look around the site or send a message to .

Are you a student? Then you’ll like this:

You don’t have to be a student to play at JAWS, but since we have a close relationship with the USC, which on its turn is closely related to the University of Amsterdam, JAWS is able to give a discount to students.  For tariff information of a JAWS membership, refer to the information block on the right (or at the bottom of the page, if you use a small screen).
