Neptunes will be organizing their Annual Summer Swimming School between Monday 1st July and Friday 20th September, from Monday to Friday at the club’s fresh water swimming pool in St. Julians. Subject to enough participants we will also have lessons on Sunday mornings at the National Pool Complex in Gzira.
The main objective of the swim school is to teach children between the ages of 3 years and 15 years the correct basic swimming techniques, which are essential for all young athletes aspiring to take any water-sport like swimming, waterpolo, triathlon, etc. seriously. Participants will be split into groups mainly according to their ability with special emphasis on teaching the correct breathing and basic stroke techniques.
The swimming courses will be split as follows:
STARFISH (Level D)
This is a swimming course aimed at children who cannot swim unaided and still use swimming aids like arm- bands etc.
SEAHORSES (Level C)
This is an elementary swimming course aimed at children who have just learnt how to swim unaided (without arm-bands) and now need to be introduced to swimming free-style and back-stroke and gain more confidence in the water.
DOLPHINS (Level B)
This is a swimming foundation course aimed at children who have previously attended a swim school, can already swim confidently the length of the 33-meter pool WITHOUT ANY HELP or swimming-aids, and have a basic knowledge of freestyle and back-stroke, but need to be taught and improve the proper breathing techniques and the basic swimming strokes (free-style, back-stroke and breast stroke).
SHARKS (Level A)
This course is intended for children who have previously attended a swimming school at intermediate level and need to continue to improve their swimming strokes. Special emphasis during this course will be aimed at introducing swimmers to more advanced swimming and racing techniques.
BARACUDAS (Level AA)
This group is for Advanced Swimmers who train throughout the year.
Please refer to the TIME-TABLE for more details regarding days, time and duration of the lessons.
During the lessons of the first week of the Swim School, coaches will assess the swimmer’s abilities required for the group that they have registered in. If the coaches feel that a swimmer is in the wrong group level, in the interest of the swimmer him/herself, we will change his/her Group level as necessary in order to maximize his/her learning capabilities.
At the end of the summer term in September, Fun Swimming Races will be held for all swimmers who have attended the Swimming School and a Certificate of Attendance will be given at the end of the Summer Swimming-School.

IMPORTANT SWIMMING SCHOOL & CLUB REGULATIONS
Due to the limited number of swimmers that the swim school can take, registrations will only be accepted upon payment on a first-come, first-serve basis
Late registrations will only be accepted subject to availability of vacant places in the various swimming groups and no partial payment will be refunded for children who are absent or decide not to continue the term.
Based on previous years’ experiences, FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CHILDREN, parents/guardians will not be allowed to switch lessons from one group to another, unless you are instructed to do so by the coach in agreement with the parents/guardians, as this disrupts our swimmers per coach ratio.
Swimmers are kindly asked to come to the lessons wearing a swimming cap PREFERABLY with their first name written clearly with a permanent marker. Swimming goggles are also recommended for Groups A, B and C swimmers. Re. Young Swimmers – Our coaching staff will only take responsibility for the swimmers’ health and safety during the time of the lesson. Coaches and pool staff will not be held responsible for those young swimmers, who are left unattended by the pool before and/or after the lessons.
The Swimming School fee paid entitles children to swim only during the swimming lessons. Therefore, those parents/guardians, who are not Club Members, and would like their children to make use of the pool prior to or after the swimming lessons need to make a Youth Season Membership for their children at the Neptunes Pool Office. (See Membership Fees List on club website).
PARENTS/GUARDIANS are STRICTLY PROHIBITED from interfering during the swimming lessons by passing comments to their children or coaches. Parents are kindly asked to seek advice or clarifications, regarding any shortcomings after the lesson has ended.
Parents/guardians should ensure that SUN BLOCK is applied to the children prior to sending them for their lessons.
Whilst at Neptunes, accompanying persons are kindly asked NOT to use the bar tables as a changing area for the children. Swimmers, parents and guardians are restricted from bringing down food and drink onto the pool premises and are only allowed to consume those purchased from the bar whilst on Club premises.
Parents/guardians, who are not Neptunes Club Members, will only be allowed to watch from the lower pool deck (the area in front of the dressing rooms) and the bar. PLEASE NOTE that persons accompanying the swimmers and who are not Club Members, are STRICTLY PROHIBITED from using the pool and going on ALL the upper deck area.
