No less than 30 water polo enthusiasts from the Sliema ASC Nursery took part in the ‘Go Calcaterra Water Polo Camp’ organised jointly by the Sliema Aquatic Sports Club Nursery and Italian Water Polo legend, Roberto Calcaterra, over the weekend. This was the second such Camp and was once again fully subscribed for.

The camp consisted of five sessions at the National Pool Tal-Qroqq, during which Calcaterra was assisted by a number of Sliema ASC Coaches as well as members of the Sliema first team.

Nursery Head, John Attard, explained the benefits of having such diversified training sessions: ‘While the Sliema ASC Nursery already employs coaches of the highest calibre from the world of water polo, 12 months a year, we feel that our athletes can only gain from this added exposure to a different school of water polo, such as the Italian one’. The former World Champion, Roberto Calcaterra expressed his satisfaction at the level of organisation from the local club. He had words of praise for local talent and is happy with his ever-growing partnership with Sliema ASC.

The training camp was made possible by GO and was surely a valuable experience for all aspiring water polo players who took part.

In-Nursery ta’ Sliema ASC torganizza training camp ma’ Roberto Calcaterra

Xejn anqas minn tlettin plejer tal-waterpolo min-nursery ta’ Sliema ASC ippartecipaw fil-‘Go Calcaterra Water Polo Camp’, li kien organizzat min-Nursery ta’ Sliema Aquatic Sports Club flimkien mall-leggenda tal-waterpolo Taljan, Roberto Calcaterra, tul il-weekend li għadda. Dan kien it-tieni training camp tat-tip tiegħu li għal darb’ oħra t-tfal attendew bi hgarhom.

It-taħriġ ikkonsista f’ħames sezzjonijiet fil-pixxina Nazzjonali f’Tal-Qroqq, b’Calcaterra jkun assistit minn numru ta’ kowcis ta’ Sliema kif ukoll mill-membri ta’ l-ewwel skwadra Slimiza

Il-kap tan-nursery, John Attard, spjega kif dan it-tahrig addizzjonali kien ta’ beneficju għal dawn it-tfal: ‘Filwaqt li n-Nursery ta’ Sliema ASC diga timpjega fost l-aqwa coaches mid-dinja tal-waterpolo tul is-sena kollha, nemmnu li huwa ta’ gid li l-atleti tagħna jkunu esposti għal-skejjel ta’ waterpolo differenti bhal ma hija dik Taljana. L-eks Champion tad-dinja, Roberto Calcaterra, wera’ s-sodisfazzjon għal-livell ta’ organizzazjoni minn naha tal-klabb. Kellu kliem ta’ tifhir għat-talent lokali, filwaqt li jinsab kuntent li r-relazzjoni tiegħu mal-klabb slimiz kompliet tisahhah.

It-training camp kien sponsorjat mill-kumpanija GO u żgur li serva t’ esperjenza utli għall-plejers żgħar kollha li hadu sehem.
