Neptunes boys in Sicily
Neptunes’ youth squad recently had a three-day training camp in Acireale where they were hosted by Sicilian club Pozzillo.
Headed by coach Ġużi Attard, a group of 13 players, aged 12 to 15 years, used the Sicily training stint to step up their preparations for this summer’s ASA junior leagues.
As the Neptunes and Pozzillo squads trained together, Attard and Maddalena Musumeci, the youth coach of Pozzillo, could share their knowledge and experience for the benefit of their young charges. Neptunes trained twice a day with each session lasting two hours.
Musumeci is a familiar name in the international waterpolo scene.
For many years, Musumeci was a member of the Italian women’s team that won a gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics and the World Championships in 1998 and 2001. Musumeci also won four European Championships with Italy plus seven Champions Cup and nine league titles with her club.
In a statement, Neptunes said that their youths are now looking forward to the return visit of the Pozzillo squad at their Balluta Bay pool during the summer months.
