Competitioncalender 2019-2020 available

In the calender the dates can be found. Please register these dates! The KNZB has made some changes to the competitions. We will inform you about this later on the site.


Dear swimmers and parents,

Best wishes for 2020 with many enjoyable swimming competitions and PR’s.

Through this email we want to inform you about a number of important issues for the coming year. The most important message is that we urgently need help to move the club forward. This is necessary at all levels: trainers, time-keepers, competition secretariat, general competition support.


At the moment we have a hard time supplying enough time-keepers to competitions in which swimmers from Torpedo participate. When registering for club competitions, minors, juniors and youth competitions, Torpedo is required to supply a number of ctime-keepers. This rule will now be effectively applied in 2020: no time-keepers = no competitions. What is new in 2020 is that if insufficient time-keepers are supplied (or do not show up during the competition), 7 swimmers will not be allowed at the next competition.

As requested during the ALV, we have dedicated a webpage on this function with much more detailed information.


Torpedo is required to have a trainer at the side of the pool when there are swimmers in the water. The schedule for the trainers is currently quite full, and there is little room in this schedule. To compensate for the current shortage of trainers, we have already found the older swimmers willing to support some training sessions (for which we are very grateful). However, in the event of illness or impediment, training sessions are unfortunately canceled or less effective training sessions can be given. Ultimately, this is at the expense of the performance of our swimmers.

Competition Secretariat

Annie and Kimberley are currently the two people committed to this task. Here too we are looking for additional support.

Torpedo will have to organize two consecutive competitions in the coming period (22nd and 29th of March). For this, many volunteers are needed, not only at the edge of the pool (pool construction, walking cards, delivering drinks), but more important: especially in preparation (compiling competitions, printing tickets, cutting, placing in order, etc.). This is a big job where we have to prepare everything under time pressure.

Sign In!

Although we already have a fantastic group of volunteers who work for the swimmers on a weekly basis, this group is currently too small and we really need reinforcement! Older swimmers, parents, grandfathers and grandmothers, speak to a trainer, time-keeper or board member and sign up to make it possible for our swimmers to achieve great results!

On behalf of the trainers, competition secretariat, board and all swimmers,

Pascal Veltman

Competition and Personal results23-Feb-2020

February was a quiet month with regards to competitions, but we will hit it again in March!

On Sunday March 15th we will swim our last competition competition of this season. On March 22nd we have a junior-youth circuit and on the 29th the miniorencircuit for minors and juniors.

For the club, the competition match is the most important. We are currently 7th and this competition is a possibility to climb a little to 6th place. If you want to see for yourself, check out the KNZB site (2nd class, Midwest region).

All swim times of competitions, minors and youth circuits (in principle all competitions organized by the KNZB) are recorded in swimrankings. Here you can see how you are doing nationwide and compare your swim times with those of your national and international swimming heroes.
Just look for yourself here (link is also at the bottom of this page).

See you Sunday, March 15!

Swimming pool 'de Lieberg' smoke free!26-Sep-2018

Dear swimmers, trainers, parents and volunteers,

Optisport has requested us to share the following message with you. The message is in Dutch, but as summary: As of January 1st 2019, the swimming pool "de Lieberg" will be smoke free. This includes the entry and terrasses. In case you would like to smoke, please smoke outside the view of the children.

As club we do support this message. 

Full message below:


Hilversum, 12 september 2018
Geachte heer/mevrouw, 
Optisport richt zich steeds meer op gezondheid. We geven kinderen het goede voorbeeld als zij bij ons te gast zijn op de locatie. Dit betekent dat we ons terrein rookvrij maken. Op dinsdag 19 juni heeft Optisport een overeenkomst ondertekent met Alliantie Nederland Rookvrij en zijn we officieel partner van de Rookvrije Generatie.
Wat verandert er? Vanaf 1 januari 2019 is Optisport Hilversum net als alle andere Optisport accommodaties in Nederland en België rookvrij. Iedereen is en blijft welkom op onze locatie, ook rokers! We vragen rokers om buiten het zicht van kinderen en buiten het terrein te roken. De entree en plekken binnen ons terrein, zoals het terras zijn rookvrij.
Waarom op weg naar rookvrij? Zien roken, doet roken. Als kinderen anderen zien roken lijkt dat normaal en misschien zelfs aantrekkelijk. Zeker als zij mensen zien roken naar wie zij opkijken zoals andere sporters, zweminstructeurs en ouders. Daarnaast is meeroken zowel binnen als buiten schadelijk, met name voor kinderen. Ook in de buitenlucht kunnen kinderen in aanraking komen met tabaksrook. Door een rookvrij terrein voorkomen we dit. Kijk op voor meer informatie.
Rookvrije Generatie De beweging ‘op weg naar een Rookvrije Generatie’ werkt toe naar een samenleving waarin we opgroeiende kinderen beschermen tegen tabaksrook en de verleiding om te gaan roken. Iedere week raken honderden kinderen in ons land verslaafd aan roken. Ieder kind is er één teveel. We streven ernaar dat kinderen niet meer in de verleiding komen om te gaan roken. Daarvoor is het nodig dat we samen het goede voorbeeld geven en de omgeving waar kinderen veel komen rookvrij maken. Dagelijks bezoeken veel kinderen onze accommodaties tijdens zwemles, recreatief zwemmen, om te sporten bij de sportvereniging of om te spelen en bewegen bij Avontura of Krazy Kangaroo. Daarom draagt een rookvrij Optisport bij aan het realiseren van de Rookvrije Generatie.
Wij hopen op de medewerking van onze huurders, om zich samen met Optisport sterk te maken voor een gezonde omgeving voor kinderen!
Met vriendelijke groet,

Tobias Bergevoet 
Locatiemanager Optisport Hilversum
