Welcome to AASI Swimming

In AASI Swimming there is room for every level of experience - Everything from the newly hatched waterdog to the old, experienced swimmer. At training, you are your own coach - Meaning that there is no trainer on the poolside, no mandatory training, and no training sessions where you have to show up. At AASI Swiming you create your own program and decide when you want to come and train in the water. Besides swimming, AASI Swimming also offers team-based sports such as underwater rugby. These are described below.

AASI Swimming is driven by volunteers who are always ready to give a helping hand, a tip, or inspiration to a program when needed. The volunteers handle everything from administrative to practical work in the club. I.e. the chairperson, cashier, and lifeguards/openers are all volunteers, who are enthusiastic about the club and the fellowship that comes with it. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Swimcrew, send an e-mail to svomningformand@aasisport.dk and hear more about how you can become a part of the crew.

AASI Swimming is more than just a sport. We strive to create a social network amongst our members by arranging theme-days, social events, and by during volunteer work for and in the club.

AASI Swimming can be found in Østre Allé Svømmesal: Samsøgade 45, 9000 Aalborg.

Underwater rugby

Underwater rugby is played in the deep end of the pool where a goal is placed on the bottom at each side of the pool. The players are equipped with a snorkel, a scuba mask, and flippers and are divided into two teams who have to fight for a salt water-filled ball and get it into the goal. Underwater rugby is played in every dimension (Up/down, back/forth and, from side to side). The game requires technique and tactics but also strength and physical fitness.

The teams consist of a mix of newbies and experienced players of both sexes. All levels are welcome to underwater rugby - meaning it does not matter if you are an experienced swimmer/diver or not. There is room for everybody on the team. Besides, it does not take long to get used to the snorkel!

Waterpolo

Water polo is played in the deep end of the pool where a goal is placed on either side of the pool. A team consists of six players and a goalkeeper. Every player wears a hat - thus making it is easier to recognize a team member from an opponent. When the game starts the teams have to fight for the ball and score the most goals.

Waterpolo training lasts two hours and consists of a warm-up, physical fitness- as well as technical training and at last, there be will be a short game between two teams. The training is lead by a volunteer and the teams consist of newbies and experienced players of both sexes. Everybody is welcome to join in on the training - there is room for everybody!

Training Schedule & Season start

Season 2022/0231 starts monday the 05/09/2022 and the last training is on thursday the 29/06/2023. The training schedule is as follows:

Weekday:  Time: Opener/lifeguard: Sport:

On Tuesdays, we have the opportunity to offer water polo training, as long as there are enough players. We divide the hall into 2 parts, where we offer both swimming and water polo. But at 10 p.m., the entire water polo team will have to use the hall.

The opener will arrive 5-10 minutes before the concerned training time. This gives the opener and the members time to change and be ready to go into the pool at the scheduled training time. NB. Members and the opener MUST have left the pool before 23.00, therefore all swimmers must leave the pool 30 minutes before closing. Additionally, may members NOT GO INTO THE WATER without the opener is present.
