JAWS Student Waterpolo Amsterdam is looking for shrewd players!

For more than 15 years, JAWS has been THE premier student waterpolo team of Amsterdam. What’s could possibly be a better pasttime than practising a sport as cool as waterpolo? Right!

No matter whether you’re an experienced player, or can barely manage to keep your head above the water, we offer accessible waterpolo at any skill level. Because JAWS is represented in two leagues (KZNB for the sports enthusiasts and NCS for beginners) there is something to suit everyone’s taste. We also guarantee your open-finned reception into one of our four teams (1x ladies, 3x gents).

Are you convinced yet? No? Then maybe this is the most important point of all: JAWS is a club not only passionate in the swimming pool, but outside of it too. Activities such as a hitchhiking competition, New Year’s ball, a 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; your year with us can be as crazy as you like. The best part is: after you register, you are bound to drown in polo friendship!

So if you want to start or continue playing waterpolo during your time in Amsterdam, and want to make the most out of your student time as well? Now is your chance! For more information, check out this site or send a message to

Still in doubt? Bad idea. Doubt causes stress. You’d better visit one of our training sessions. The first 3 are on the house! We advise you to contact our board in advance and tell them about your skill level so they can match you up with the appropriate set of impeccable polo pals.
