You are on the official site of the swimming club ZIOS (www.zios.be).
ZIOS is the abbreviation of "zwemmen is onze sport what means "Swimming Is Our Sport"

Let me take a moment to present you our club

The club is founded in 1968. From the start we had in mind to create a club, with a friendly atmosphere, where everybody who's interested in swimming, is welcome.
We help the little ones to get used to the water (overcome the fear of water) We have a swimming school for children and for adults. We consummate the technique of swimming and make the children familiar with different styles of swimming. We provide the opportunity of leisure swimming but our members have also the possibility to participate competitions.
Both, leisure swimming and competition can be done indoors and outdoors (rivers, canals and lakes) and the opportunities are there for every body, children, grown-ups and seniors.

The majority of the competitions we joined are situated in Belgium, Occasionally we also participate a competition in one of our neighbouring countries.

The whole site is written in Dutch. This is so, because also our youngest members, has to find the information they are looking for. However it's quite possible that you are interested in the information that can be found on this site. That's the reason why we added this English page to our site.

We don't have the intention to translate the whole site. The only purpose of this page is to guide you through this site.

In the following paragraph you will find a translation of our menu. The pages that can be interesting for those who don't speak the Dutch language are indicated with an asterisk (*).
