Sportsmanship is very important to us, respect each other, the referees and the opponents and try to have a nice and fair match.
Whether you are pro or beginner we always strive to let anyone participate at their level, for example in tournaments we will usually join with a competitive and a recreational team.
Teamwork is what brings us together as a team, we will always try to help out each other in the pool but also in daily life.
Apart from training, competition and tournaments we like to engage in social events, having a drink together after training or going to the club or theater.

OUR AWARDS

All awards recognize the swimmer with the highest percentage of overall improvement in all events.

LEARN MOREABOUT WATERPROOF

Amsterdam Waterproof is a very diverse group of guys and girls, young, old, small, tall, beginners and experienced players, but above all a group of people who like to play water polo in a relaxed atmosphere while taking the game seriously.

We practice twice a week at the Sloterparkbad in order to improve our water polo skills as well as our stamina. Practices are every Tuesday from 20:30 until 21:45 hours and every Friday from 20:00 until 21:00 hours. A typical practice session consists of swimming exercises to improve our stamina and technical exercises to improve our skills and tactics. We often play a practice match as well. On Fridays, after practice, we usually go for a drink together, and besides practice, we do social activities together, such as going out to bars, dance parties, festivals and theatre shows.

Amsterdam Waterproof takes part in the national NCS competition, which consists of six Sunday matches per year. We also participate in tournaments organised by our friends: other gay water polo clubs in Europe, such as in London, Paris and Brussels. We also participate in the Gay Games, the EuroGames and the World Out Games. All great fun!

While we’re an LGBT+ water polo club, we welcome everyone.
