SWIM FIT & MASTERS Swimming

Winter 2022

Neptunes will be continuing the Swim Fit Swimming School starting from Monday 3rd January and run up to Sunday 27th March at the Neptunes pool in Balluta Bay, with Coaches Gail Rizzo and Monique Mangion.

Holidays: No lessons will be held on Thursday 10 th February.

The main objective of the swim fit school is to promote fitness and health in adults by offering and supporting swimmers, some of whom might be athletes aspiring to take any water-sport like swimming, water-polo, triathlon, etc. more seriously.  Participants will be split into groups mainly according to their ability. How far you go with swim fit is up to you. The broad objectives are better health, learning the correct technique, getting fit, and friendship between swimmers. Coaches Gail Rizzo and Monique Mangion will cover technique development across all four strokes as well as fitness sessions, that will be tailored to the abilities of the swimmers involved.

The swimming courses will be split as follows:

NON-SWIMMERS
This is for swimmers who want to learn how to swim, without any aid.

BEGINNERS
This course is aimed at swimmers who know how to swim confidently, but want to learn the basic strokes like free-style, breaststroke and back-stroke. Swimmers will learn to be more confident in the water, and will also learn to improve the proper breathing techniques.

INTERMEDIATE
Swimmers who have some swimming background and have basic skills. Programmes to further progressions to increase fitness, endurance and improve overall technique.

ADVANCED
Swimmers who have a strong swimming background and proficient in stroke technique. Specific programmes for more intensive endurance work to increase fitness levels and improve overall technique. This level is advised for, ex competitive swimmers, open water swimmers, triathletes, and all year-round swimmers.

During the first lessons, 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.

Swimmers will need the following equipment – swim cap, goggles, kick board, paddles, pull buoy and fins/flipper
